Christmas was wonderful! A great feature of having a young clueless child is that we were able to sleep in. Since church was at 9:00 am, we decided to just wait to do the present thing after. Each year my wonderful Aunt Harriet sends us home from the Christmas Eve party with cinnamon rolls ready to go in the oven. They are the kind my grandma used to make. They make me homesick for her. I do miss her a lot. So we started the day off with some delicious cinnamon rolls and a little nostalgia. Then it was off to church. The messages were wonderful. I loved the sweet reminder of why we celebrate the season. How blessed we are to have a Savior.
|All dressed up and ready for church. When taking pictures with a timer one should do a few test tries to see how the shadows are working in the background. Oh well, you get the idea.|
|The glorious scene left behind by Santa.|
|Uncle D and Aunt Bird (my sister and her hubby) made Cormac an official member of the family by initiating him into the "crab tradition." It's a long story, maybe for another time.|
|I look a bit beached in most of these pictures. Get over it. This little girl has to fit in there somehow.|
|I got a Kindle Fire!|
|Cormac could model for Little People. At least he could if we could get him to smile for the camera.|
|Cormac got a baby to practice with before the real deal gets here. Here he is giving her a kiss and a hug (this was before he ripped all her clothes off and left her naked and cold on the ground).|
