I managed to pick up a cold while I was home in addition to doing something funky to my knee, so by the time I got back from the airport last night, getting photos off my camera just wasn't going to happen... lol. But, I know that there are a few people waiting for pictures, so here you go :)
Christmas Eve - mom and I did lots of baking. She made her famous butter horn rolls and got the cinnamon rolls ready for Christmas morning while I made two kinds of cookies, scotcharoos, and got all of the food ready for our traditional Christmas Eve sandwich buffet dinner.
Here's a picture of the front room after I got all of the presents arranged so that they fit under / around the tree:
Then once Nicole and Brian got off work, they came over to spend Christmas Eve with me, mom, dad and grandpa:
Christmas morning... This picture of Snowball cracks me up... she's so different from Beethoven and Casper - she was totally chill with the whole morning. Just content to be there with everyone else and totally oblivious to the chaos.
And last but not least, Nicole with the present of the day... a gorgeous diamond necklace from Brian:
In case you can't tell from the expression on her face, she loved it. A lot. lol.
I put all of my pictures from Thanksgiving and Christmas into a folder here. Brian has more pictures that I'll add if I get them (assuming, of course, that Typepad manages to fix the bulk uploader tool so I don't have to do them in batches of 15, because that's slow and it sucks :-P)
And with that, I'm off to take some Nyquil, baby my knee and get some sleep! Melody and her family are in town so once I'm done with my work meetings tomorrow, it's play time!
