Christmas 2009.

We were incredibly blessed this Christmas and we are just so thankful for such amazing family and friends. Instead of visiting both families on Christmas day, we split it up by going to Garth's family Christmas Eve and my family on Christmas day. It was perfect! No rushing around and trying to eat two big meals. So, first I'll tell you about Christmas Eve, in pictures.
Us:
Garth and his sister, Sam:
Uncle Garth and Lilly:Trying to get a picture with our Lilly:
Bobotie, South African deliciousness:
The amazing feast:THEN Santa visited!He is a handsome Santa, no?
Dr. Lilly:My SIL and I with our matching Snuggies: Such a wonderful day! Tomorrow I'll tell you about my family's Christmas.

Looks like a good Christmas, I kinda want a snuggie, may have to go out and get one!

Blair said...

Looks like a very Merry Christmas! I wear my snuggie everyday!! I even sit at the kitchen table with it on and it grosses my husband out but I'm telling you once you start wearing it around the house, you feel naked without it! Ha!
Oh and I started my big "D" today b/c I consumed so much crap over the last 4 days that my eyes, fingers, and feet were swollen. I guess too much salt. So. Bad.

I want the snuggie!! I think that is one of the xmas gifts I'm getting because hubby told me he didn't have one of my xmas gifts because it was sold out. Even this weekend we went out to the stores and he said still sold out and that probably by now I figured out what it was. So excited to get mine soon!

What a fantastic Santa your family had!! I asked my Paw Paw if he was going to dress up like he did when we were kids, but it seems to move on to the younger generation to dress up!

Gwen said...
