Christmas. A summary.

Oh there was SO much goodness over the past few days. Certainly we had our share of tantrums, spills, and dropping-of-one's-digital-camera-into-a-glass-of-water, but for the most part, it was all holly, jolly goodness. Here are some highlights.

A personal favorite - Christmas socks.

Mama feet.

Wee baby feet.

There were smiling faces.


And presents that were a grand-slam.

No caption necessary, right?

There were even a few moments like this where a mama could sit back and relax. 

"Wook, mama. Pli-yers and a hammah"

And you know there was some feasting.

Anyone else get served something so fine they had
 to look it up on Wikipedia?

Be still my heart - there were hand-knits galore. My sister made me a sweater that I can't stop wearing long enough to photograph appropriately

I promise I'll take a better photo.
In the springtime perhaps.

Beloved cousin commissioned these beauties from her boyfriend's grandma! Now that is gift-giving dedication, folks.

Oh hand-knit slippers. Come on.

This gorgeous hat came from Etsy (a post worshiping all the Etsy goodness this year is coming asap, I promise).

Baby viking!

That's enough for today, I think. There are cookies to eat and snow to shovel around here.

I hope your holiday was joyful and triumphant.


  1. Fun, fun! Love the handknit sweater. J's facial expression in the photo with the truck is priceless!

  2. Love that viking hat! Glad you had a Merry Christmas!

  3. Thanks guys, I too love the face and the viking hat :)
