Christmas has come and gone but, toys are still strung all through out the house, the tree is still up, the wreath is still on the door, and there are still Christmas goodies on the kitchen counter. I guess since the sense of Christmas is still lingering it's ok to catch up on our Christmas going ons.
The Christmas Card
I had a lot of fun with this year's Christmas card.
First I hunted down red Converse, which was painful until I learned we have several Converse stores in Vegas, who knew?
Then came the photo shoot. This was really fun! Ronnie selected the music and I snapped shots as the kids let loose and had a ball.
A little work on Photoshop and then the assembling began.

Fun was had by all this year as we assembled our houses. I think we are still finding candy that rolled off the table and found it's way to every corner of the house. Mom made a cute little cozy cottage with a red and green roof. Cody decorated his love shack, complete with a candy cane heart archway. Lacey, Sadie, and Lana get the award for most candy used and they added a very cool chimney to their house. Kyle worked all by himself on his ginger train, he did a great job, there is even cargo in the train car. Lana carried on the tradition of the Rudolph nose and introduced her cousin Mason to the fun.
Here's just a few photos of Christmas:
