Christmas 2012 Recap

Yes, you read that correctly. Christmas recap. Right. I am fully aware that it’s been nearly two months since Christmas, but a couple nights ago as I was cleaning off my SD camera card, I found all our Christmas pictures and realized I never posted them. So because this is a place where I record our lives for future reference, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to backtrack a bit. ha.

I’m not going to give you a whole lot of info, since most of the pictures speak for themselves. We spent Christmas Eve at my parents house and can you believe that I forgot my camera at home and didn’t get one picture? boo. My sister got a bunch, but I have forgotten to get them from her. Oh well. So the pictures you see here are from Christmas Day. The last couple years we have been doing Christmas Day as a little family, in our PJ’s.   We LOVE that. And then in the afternoon family comes over to our house, we lounge around watching Christmas movies and eat a simple dinner. This year it was this salmon, with brussel sprouts, carrots, a salad and scalloped potatoes. So yummy! In fact, it was so good I forgot a photo of it. ha. Anyway, Christmas Day was wonderful…and here’s a few snapshots of the day….

Our holiday dining room. I adore this room during the holidays. So much fun.

Our gingerbread house that the kids made with their cousins and their Uncle Brad. Not bad, right?

Very blurry picture of our stockings after Santa came.

Most decent picture we could get of jake when he saw the stockings. He wouldn’t stop moving. ha.

Reading the Christmas story.

Singing Happy Birthday to Jesus

Opening their presents from Santa…Jake wanted heelys and Evy wanted dollys

My gift from my husband…this beautiful card. For years now we don’t exchange gifts…just cards. They tend to be a bit more meaningful.

The kids LOVE this mug I got while in Disneyland. They have the best time finding things. Jake studying it while I made pancakes.Nannie’s pancakes. Someday I will do a new Food Friday on these with better pictures, but for now you can find the recipe HERE. They are best ever, trust me on this. :) In the afternoon my parents came over, along with my nieces and nephew. Can you see the Wollmer resemblance between my dad and my nephew Brandon??My niece made this mug for me in her pottery class. She is such a sweetie. Didn’t she do a good job?Oh and the last picture is from the Christmas program at church. Jake’s such a kick. ha.

Well, that’s it! Merry Christmas everyone! {ha!}

    I was thinking this week of doing a Christmas post because I never got around to it and I figured no one would care to read it, but I loved reading yours! Your house looked beautiful….
