Pictures from Christmas 2013

Wow, y’all. I’m pooped! This has been a fantastic year all around and it is definitely ending on a high note. This time last year, I had a bad case of the flu, so being sleep deprived this year is no biggie. There’s always another cup of coffee to drink.

We had a wonderful Christmas with my side of the family. Seriously, not a single complaint. There were 11 people in the house for five days, but everyone was in good spirits. We went to church together, took communion together, and swapped family stories in the living room every night. If I sat and thought about it, I could probably drum up some minor detail that could’ve made the week better, but it would take a long while.

Chuck gets Husband of the Year for buying me a new camera lens (and a Green Bay Packers throwback jersey, which I wore proudly around my Chicago Bears family members).  I’m still learning how to use the lens, particularly indoors, so forgive the fuzziness. I’m going to dump a bunch of photos now, so I hope you aren’t on dial-up.

My boys were introduced to Rainbow Looming… Rubber bands everywhere!

Best part of Christmas – my Mamaw came to visit. Actually, the very best part of the week was when she and I went to the Christmas Eve candlelight service together: Mamaw came to visit

I’m not in the photo (obviously), but this is what our living room looked like every night. Chuck wasn’t being antisocial, though. He was building a new Lego set: Everyone
