December moves way too quickly. I vote we eliminate March and make December twice as long.
Since it's nearly 2011, I thought I'd better hurry and put up the rest of Christmas 2010 pictures.
I love the pewter nativity on this coffee table. I loved it so much that I asked my mom for it last year. She said she wasn't sure. Later that afternoon, someone dropped by to give my parents a gift and it was the exact same nativity! So she gave that one to me:) Christmas books are one of my favorite parts of the season. I've read and re-read all of the books on this table. Including the one I got from Rychelle last year. Thanks for that.
I think this is my favorite Christmas spot. The poor cement nativity wasn't even going to get picked at my parents---and I ended up taking pity on it before it went to DI. And I'm SO glad I did! I bought the red runner in Germany two years ago, and I love how that looks under the nativity, and ties the color of the book together. It's one of my favorite Christmas books. I boutht the crystal nativity when I went to the Waterford Crystal Factory in Ireland. It stays up in my house all year long.
And here are Christmas Eve pictures:
Some of the grandkids doing the nativity. I'm particularly fond of the enthusiasm of the Asian angel in the top right.
Our two Babies Jesus. We were extra holy this year.
The result of trying to do more than just recite Luke 2:1-18: The sheep's head is off, the donkey sat up, one of the Baby Jesus' is getting angel accessories and the shepherds returned to their fields.
My parents with 17 (of their 45) grandkids with new jammies.
Grandma with some of her granddaughters.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
