Does Christmas hafta go so fast?! We prepare for weeks...months, even...and then, in a few hours, it's all over.


Just like that. *snaps fingers*

A peek into our Christmas:

Contrary to stretched arms and sleepy faces, the kids were rarin' to go on Christmas Eve morning!

The Grandkids!!

Baby Girl opened this present, jammies, gathered the one other present she had opened, came to me with burgeoning arms and said, "I wanna go home now, let's get in da van." Little did she know we had just begun!

My baby bro, with his Godson...taking good care of him.

I and my girl...

My favorite Christmas present (this would be my new, future SISTER!!):

My boy and my dad:

My grandpa, my aunt and my boy...the extended family arrived for "Gift Opening: Part Thrice" in the afternoon!

Okay...Christmas Day apparently needs it's own post! This post became entirely too photo laden! Stay tuned!!


  1. I love all the smiling faces!! Everyone looks like they had a wonderful time!

  2. I love all your pictures.

  3. Great Pictures!

It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
