With having babies sick the whole week before Christmas, I felt like I really had to look hard to find much Christmas spirit within me. On Sunday evening though, we had a Christmas party. Alas, I have no pictures and will have to get them from Heidi. I came close to telling Dru several times that I just wasn’t up to hosting a Christmas party, but it felt like that would be giving up altogether, so we pushed through. My house was dirty but no one seemed to mind. And they even put up with me doing some Christmas decorating and pretzel chocolating while they were all here. I decided that I WOULD decorate cookies this year! So I did.
Here are a bunch of pictures…most of them post Christmas.
These first pictures are pre-Christmas. Above, Jube washing dishes, perched precariously on the edge of the sink.
Havilah came with us to the Mall one evening before Christmas to do some last minute shopping. Jube stayed with Mae Wahn.
The white blobs are marshmallow on spoon shaped pop-sickle sticks. I dipped them in chocolate and drizzled them in white chocolate. Kinda good.
On Monday afternoon Jube and I did some more chocolate stuff. Suddenly I realized that Jube’s nose was not running and that he was happy. It was as though I got my life back! Amazing!
The cow has a hat on.
A nap before we went to the Mall, this time just to take pictures just for fun. This was last night.
Pictures with the elephants. Jube loved it.
Jube said it was too heavy to pick up. He tried though!
When we got to this part of the photo shoot, there was another guy trying to take pictures or our adorable chillens too.
I think she’s pretty sweet.
There are more pictures that should be posted of Christmas Day, Etc. Later. Dru will probably post some of them over on our family blog.
Happy New Year!
