day after Christmas

coffee table decorations and our tree

This Christmas was wonderful. It marked a year of extreme ups and downs. It was perfect to have my family close, under one roof and all healthy this year. I am grateful. Christmas passing also means that we are that much closer to meeting our baby girl Elizabeth ("Ellie"). I'm starting to freak out. I'm excited but nervous. I'm hoping to have some down time today since I am feeling so tired. But it is hard for me to sit still and not "nest!" I just ordered photos. My hope is to start an Ellie scrapbook to get back into scrapping. It has been a year since I have. Since my dad got sick last year. I have been focusing on knitting. I think on Friday I will take a trip to my LSS to get some inspiration. are some other photos of our Christmas this year...
the men. my other christmas sugar cookies looked like weird aliens!

You seem to have a charmed life with all your beautiful creations and nothing can be more sublime than bonding and chatting to your baby over Christmas time.
What really makes Christmas for me is the gathering of the clan in Fort Lauderdale, the Christmas carols at midnight mass with the bells and smells and everyone helping in the kitchen on Christmas day. We have all put on weight from Christmas lamb and chocolate Xmas cake and pie and we don't want to see food anymore, we actually want to feel hungry.
Got great pressies, my boyfriend got a kindle fire which is the best prezzie ever for guys who love to read, listen to music and watch movies.
My favourite prezzies was a Tracfone SVC, a T-shirt from Australia, and Aboriginee art.
I enjoy reading your blog, I love your personal touch and love the fact that you are so open about your life. I also love the photo of the log cabin. I really feel touched by your blog, I hope to read more articles of yours.
May you have the greatest tears of joy when your baby is born, and I wish you and your family lots of love in the new year.
