Whenever I'm Down...

I think of a strawberry avalanche.

The Gang (Christmas 2013)

Christmas Day 2013

     Merry Christmas everyone!! So, it's the end of Christmas Day... I really can't believe it. I'm sitting here in the den with the family by the fire, watching A Christmas Carol and blogging on my new laptop. I had a very good day today... just a bit tired, and looking forward to a good nights sleep. We opened presents last night, and I got some very nice things; seems like my mom is getting better at picking things out for me! We went to church today for our Christmas service, and had a very nice time there. It was good to spend the day with friends and enjoy each others company. I took quite a few pictures both last night and today, so please enjoy, and again, Merry Christmas. ("And God bless us, every one!")

Twas the Night Before Christmas....

     Merry Christmas (EVE) everyone!!!

     I can't believe Christmas is already here. There's lights on the tree, hot chocolate, a fire in the fireplace, wrapped presents, (no snow), and Christmas music, and I'm still sitting here blinking and wondering why we're having Christmas again... it was just yesterday, wasn't it?

     Although there isn't snow, it's pretty cold (my fingers are numb), and we've been running around all morning visiting family and such. We went to my grandma's house this morning, and this is how it ended:

    We dog-piled my brother. (Yes, that's him on the bottom. Then dad. Then me. Then Rebekah.)
    We're going to open presents soon (though I know pretty much everything I'm getting, haha), and I'm still going to be sitting here wondering where the time has gone. But, that's ok. It's Christmas.

     I hope all of you have a great Christmas Eve, and please remember why we celebrate Christmas :)
     And I also hope that all of you have a GREAT Christmas day tomorrow! Drive safely if you're driving, smile brightly (you should be smiling,) and always say Merry Christmas.
