here are the lovely gingerbread homes, dumped in the trashcan...siggggghhhhhhhhh. putting Christmas decorations is a bit of a downer for me. however, i must confess, i get a little geared up at the thought of "starting over".


here are a some Christmas 2009 happy memories...

my parents with their adorable grandchildren...

a tiny little glitter coated wreath place setting favor i whipped up for the first ever Christmas Day meal i hosted...notice there are no photos of the food! the big honkin storm totally switched up all of our Christmas plans...but karla and her family were able to make the two block trek to join us. it was truly a special day.

darth vader.

mr. elliott reading the Christmas story from Luke 2.

our new jammies.

beatrice and fancy nancy. we L.O.V.E. fancy nancy.

all the cousins opening their gift...a "let's stay at a hotel and go swimming and have a pizza party and see a movie" night. this was a wonderful alternative to exchanging gifts, as we live in a tiny cottage and have no room for more "stuff". (well, except for momma's treasures!)

happy day!
