This year, since we’re having a quieter Christmas (my brother’s family only joins us every second Christmas) and because I had to work for a few hours this morning, I was going to skip the Christmas Eve photo project. But it’s a lovely day and I think it’s going to be a wonderful Christmas. With the big boys at an afternoon movie with Beloved and the little boy napping, I find myself with the choice between cleaning and posting my pictures. Guess which one I chose? 🙂
Tried to be kind and bring doughnuts for the skeleton team at work today, but the wind caught the box just as I was stepping out of the car. Grandma’s not the only thing that got run over by a reindeer on Christmas Eve!! It’s Christmas crueler carnage!!
12 pm: I’ll be home for Christmas!
1 pm: I love my porch, and I love my porch decorated for Christmas even moreso!
2 pm: Aaaand the wrapping is done. Finally!
3:00 pm: There’s always time for Christmas cookies.
4:00 pm: The calm before the storm of Christmas crazy!
5:00 pm: Granny and her elves.
6:00 pm: They look so grown up to me here — but still not too grown up to sit in Dad’s lap.
7:00 pm: Papa Lou is adjusting his antenna to make sure the alien signal comes through clearly.
8:00 pm: A favourite Christmas tradition — the viewing of the annual family photo calendar.
The post script: Christmas morning!
And finally, the picture that I was going to post as my Christmas greeting to all of you to make the project an even dozen photos:
