Hello my Friend! That’s a wrap on Christmas 2012. I’m tired just thinking about taking down and packing away all of the decorations.
December 24th is Wrigley’s birthday. She turned EIGHT this year. We got her the year after I moved here to Florida. Crazy. She’s the best pup–such a sweet soul. I took her outside for a little photo shoot with her birthday hat on.
She will just lay there and pose like the best dog actors out there.
Give me a serious face…
A penny for your thoughts…
The night before we had headed over to J&E’s to exchange gifts with them and the kids. We had such a fun night. The girls and I did our new tradition of sidewalk subway art (like we did at Thanksgiving).
Emma hard at work…
We need to invest in some more chalk. We’re out now.
CW was the DJ and we were all jamming. Here’s Abby-his protege.
Olivia was a happy baby all night. Clapping, dancing, playing….a little ball of energy. A tad blurry, as I think this was in the middle of a dance move….
Of course Jeff and Tanner let off some fireworks. Check out the gorgeous sky!
My brother and his fam drove to Iowa to spend the weekend with my parents, so I’ll show you some cute Brennan pics in a later post. He was a huge fan of making cookies, or so it seemed =) OH–if you’ve been following my saga of the missing package with ALL of their gifts…it showed up today….nine days later. So now my mom has to ship all of the other gifts to my brother–but, I guess I should just be thankful it wasn’t stolen and did show up. How random that they hadn’t been able to find any info. on it from the time it left Tampa..until it showed up at the post office yesterday afternoon..ON Christmas. Weird. I had to ship out some other things today–and used UPS fyi.
When we got home that night CW was licked to death by Wrigs and Gooser. Every time he walks in the door he goes straight to this rug and they have a little love fest. They missed us. I love those furry faces.
We hung out at home Christmas Eve, which was really nice and relaxing, so we decided to go over to Clearwater Beach on Christmas day. Why not–we live in Florida. If I can’t have snow, I’ll take the sand. We LOVE the Sandpearl Resort over there, so that was our destination. First thing you saw in the lobby was this huge scene made out of SAND!!! Come on–who can make all of that out of sand and how do they get it to stay so secure? Look at that detail!
We lucked out with the best table at the outside restaurant. Right in the corner with the best view. Can’t beat that.
The bonfire was going strong and as the sun started to go down, it was the place to be (obviously not at THIS exact moment luckily–so I could get a good photo).
Merry Christmas to you!!!!
They were showing Christmas movies on a big, inflatable screen at the pool. It was pretty funny to see people swimming watching Elf.
Here’s where our table was. What a sunset!!!
A little red in the sky for the holidays….
Hoping your Christmas was full of love and laughter and wishing you a healthy New Year my friends.
