I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance; a scene filled with flowers and friends. I asked him what kind of wedding he wished for; he said one that would make me his wife.
Hi guys! Oops! I stayed away too long, huh?  My bad! :)

So, Christmas happened and New Years happened.  Whoo! Yes, I plan on recapping these occasions! No fear.   I hope I don't bore you with tons of pics a videos though.  There's quite a bit though, so grab a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, wine...whatever.   I won't judge :)

So, every year we all get together to do Christmas cookies a few weeks before Christmas.  This year, only a few of us could get together because of conflicting schedules but we had tons of fun anyway!

 There seemed to be a certain little boy who thought it was the bees knees to throw toys into the toilet.  Luckily Kyle, the oldest nephew (ALMOST 15!) caught him.

Andy got the privilege of fishing out the toys from the toilet water.  MMMMM....

Great Papa got to come along as well. It was really nice to have him there!

THEN, only a few short days later came Christmas!

Christmas Eve is spent at the O'Donnell household.  We have a special dinner with extended family and then, when everyone skeedaddles (is that a word?), we get to open presents!! A huge gift this year, which will greatly increase the fun of my blog, was an iFlip!!! Heck yeah!! I see many videos in the near future. We had a wonderful time over there that night!

I know, I am a dork! :) Tis the season! Hehe.

So, on to Christmas Day! We were off to my parents house around 10. My mom couldn't believe I wasn't there yet. Hey mom, I have a husband to take care of now! :) We got there and both ripped into our presents. We both got tons of great things and couldn't wait for the kiddos to start arriving to open their presents. It's bedlam in that house on Christmas morning! I love it though! I will just post some pics and then some videos at the end. :)

Welcome to the family Andrew, now you officially have to help put toys together at Christmas :)

My nephew, Eli, got an Etch a sketch! Haven't seen one of those in a long time!

They grow up way TOO fast!

She is the spitting image of her mommy!

Why, Hello!!

My Husband!

Someone must have been telling an interesting story :)

They love their Uncle Andrew!

Okay, ready for some videos??? Good!

My youngest nephew, Ethan.  He was playing with a puzzle he got for Christmas and really cheezin' it up for his Granny, who obviously needs to pay more attention :)

A sweet thank you and some cookin'!!

No rest for the kiddos!

A little bit of everything!

It was a wonderful holiday and I am lucky to have the two best families in the world. Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday as well and got to spend it with the people you love the most.

Okay, New Years post is next time. :)

    It was so great to see some photo of that fun day. Usually people take pictures, but Pa and I never see them!!

    I hadn't seen these -- cute! Of course, I kept thinking, "do I really look like that?" And, Bee apparently needs to be in the middle of the action while E is nowhere in sight.
