I've learned how to share Pictures!

Now if I can only learn how to "take" them, LOL....

Here are my guys:


The oldest, trying on a scarf someone gave him....


My hubby, picking up the trash.  He's the reason I have all blonde boys....


The little guy, who I still homeschool.  He had to put on pajamas in order to be "comfortable" for opening gifts.  He's got on an Ireland soccer t-shirt he received, too.  And of course, he had to immediately start putting together the Lego sets....

Our tree:



...which is filled with homemade things and ornaments they love:


My husband's favorite: old-fashioned glass ornaments of all types.


Tons of tiny nutcrackers which my younger son currently favors....







And all sorts of homemade ornaments they've done over the years.  Especially those that included pictures of them....






The whimsical birds that are my favorites....










The red wooden bead garland, and a hand-crocheted angel someone gave us as a topper....








The silliness:

Big brother wearing the Saints jersey little brother received because he wants one, too....








Modeling his new, super-soft blanket with our cat (Poor thing, she's so glad to have a quiet house again.  She never knew when he was going to swoop her up....)


Hubby sitting in his chair, wearing his grinch shirt, watching A Christmas Story (holding the high power magnification mirror he got because he can't see any more, LOL....)  I wish I could figure out how to get these pictures to align on the page better, but oh well....


Drinking sparkling cider out of sherbert cups....  I just don't know about this boy....


And the wrestling, the inevitable wrestling....  ALWAYS the wrestling....  But he was very good with his little brother while he was home and I was happy about that.  He's now in a somewhat cool Florida, but at least their outdoor pool is very well heated, so he's not minding the wind too much.  It's supposed to warm up for them as the week continues.  I hope that all will go well.  This is the first big trip he's made away from home since a disastrous week at a scout camp when he was eleven....

And the snow - more than we've ever had in December.  There's been snow on the ground almost constantly since Thanksgiving and that's just unheard of for us here:



We've had a pretty nice Christmas around here.  It's pretty quiet now... time to read!

I think you took great photos. I don't know how to take them either. I always have the camera at the ready and it's driving my kids nutty.

Very nice...you covered it well. I like the birds in the tree, too. Your owl reminds me of the screech owl we had in the back yard recently.
