Scenes From A Christmas

A very sweet tree surrounded by many, many brown paper packages all tied up with string.

Christmas Eve church first at one church to hear Matthew play trumpet and then a most beautiful late night service with candles and carols and harp...finished off with people gathering around the piano to sing the Hallelujah Chorus.  Probably one of my very favorite services I've been to.  

Home after midnight where my boys modeled their new Christmas jammies and binged on Christmas cookies.

Christmas Day.  Cooking, presents, more cooking, more presents, cooking, dishes, cooking and more dishes...and not one family photo.


And yep,  they're tall.  And yep, I'm not.

Christmas crackers filled with fun hats and little toys and bad jokes.  I'll be picking up confetti for days, but so worth it!

My houseful...all cozied up watching the Nuggets play.  

So happy with this present.


After the busyness of the day, a hot cup of really yummy tea, a soak in a very bubbly tub and a Hallmark movie watched while laying in bed.



Seriously, is there anything better than Christmas cookies?  

It's been a whirlwind...a good whirlwind, but a whirlwind nonetheless.  I'm soaking up as much time with my boys right now...loving that they are all sleeping under one roof for a few nights.  Our house is anything but calm and quiet, but I'll take it!

Hoping you and yours had a very, merry Christmas indeed.
