Christmas Confessions

1.  This hat – gifted to Beckham from his Nana M – is very reminiscent of the Bunny Rabbit costume from The Christmas Story.  Obviously, Becks felt just like Ralphie when he was forced to wear it. 


2.  I woke up three times last night anticipating Christmas morning, anxious for Beck to wake up to see his gifts from Santa.

3.  I have consumed no less than a dozen sausage balls today.  I snag one every time I’m in the kitchen. 

4.  I never knew how much fun putting together Legos are, and receive immense satisfaction when I’ve properly assembled something new with no leftover pieces. 


5.  Everyone at my house is sleeping right now.  All two of them.  I’ll let you guess which one went to sleep with a fire truck and a helicopter.

6.  My son had to be removed from the Christmas Eve service at church last night.  He may or may not have been pouncing on his cousin’s dress, loudly exclaiming “Cheesyballs!” while the minister read the Christmas story to the children.  Sigh.

7.  Um, bokeh?  I LOVE IT.

8.   Santa brought a lot of toys this year that I never thought would be under my Christmas tree.  Star Wars paraphernalia, Lego Ninjago (or something?), Spiderman jammies.  Boys toys = foreign to me.



9.  Wrapping gifts tops my list of most annoying holiday activities.  Also annoying?  50 degree temperatures.  Hopefully, that just means plenty of snow days in January and February. 

10.  Though I really see no point to it today, I’m off to shower.  Wishing you the merriest of Christmases!!!!!

I have a similar picture of my G in a monkey hat. So so funny.

Duude, we had the hat moment, but Beck's hat is sooo much cuter than the one my daughter (and her 12 year old cousin) were forced to wear!!

EEEEK!! I am so glad that you left a comment on my blog today. Your blog hasn't been showing up in my reader in forevah and so I clicked over her and all kinds of new posts popped up that I've missed. I just thought you'd been busy and didn't have time to blog. AGH! Stupid reader! So it was good to catch up. Also- can I just say that your photog skills are awesome! So glad you all had a great Christmas :-)

Boy toys are foreign to me too! I have about a million baby dolls though:)
