Let's start with Christmas, partly because this picture makes me feel warm all over:
Ok, moving on. :) But first, note the upright Santa Hat on the end table there. Those hats sang and danced (yes, danced), and all 5 of us kids got one... :-/ Ohhh the cacophony... Ha.
NOW moving on...To more pictures of Christmas:
Most of the kids with Santa
Of course, the youngest had to sit on Santa's lap too... Am I referring to me or my baby? ... Me, der. I use the baby as an excuse for plenty of things, but I hope I don't need an excuse to sit on Santa's lap. Haha.
And some pics from Eisenmann Christmas:
|Our first-ever attempt at roasting chestnuts!|
|"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire......" Haven't you always been curious?|
|It turns out that we will continue to be a bit curious... It was a valiant attempt, but it looks like we will have to try again next year to master the technique. :) (Chestnuts were a bit over-roasted)|
|Taffy pulling. Ryan made some perfect taffy.|
|Someone was unable to attend the immediate family Christmas...Or so Julie thought.|
Every holiday is better with the right cardboard cut-out.
My present from Nelson. :) I don't think that onesie is quite for me, though, or else Nelson really needs an update on my clothing size...
That's all for now. Stay tuned-- My goal is to post a bit more this year than last year!
