Merry Christmas

I hope that Santa found you snug and comfy in your beds last night with visions of sugar plumbs dancing in your heads. Our Christmas has been lovely - we started with the Christmas Eve service at church last night - where some of my favorite people in the world sang and lead us in some incredible Worship.

We went home and as it got colder and colder - we made soup, finished wrapping gifts, watched The Christmas Story, and enjoyed some relaxation at home.

Today has been a whirlwind of gift opening and eating - but it has been another lovely day. Santa brought me a Barnes & Noble nook (like the Amazon Kindle), a new laptop (Olivia), some books, a couple of movies, an upscale version of a Snuggie, and several other things.

John has gotten lots of clothes, cologne, games, movies, and other items.

We enjoyed watching the kids open gifts at John's parent's today... it's amazing the things that they get and the shear volume is incredible - but a good time has been had by all.

I'm now ready for a complete pajama day tomorrow relaxing and doing some work around the house to get things completely back in order now that we've rearranged for the nursery. I've got to get the new craft room set up before our cleaning service comes on Monday in preparation for more festivities.

I've got lots of pictures and posts coming your way - pictures from John's cousin's wedding a couple of weeks ago...and the nursery is almost complete... it is ready for a big reveal. Lets just say that my sister in law thinks that it looks like a magazine photo - so I can't wait to share it with you all!

I hope that you all have had a very special day, and I'd love to hear how you celebrated...
