{in a nutshell}

so, i'm not too sure if any of you have noticed that this space is lacking in the documenting-of-the-holidays department?! but...it IS!

and as much as i would love to tell you that this is because i have been slaving away over these past weeks on the perfect "holiday post" - i'd be lying!

nope, no witty red-nosed jingle here. not even a frosty tinsel-themed tune!

just a quick re-cap of our holidays...in a nutshell.

we enjoyed our time and our company.

we savoured our family moments, thus prompting us to choose that word for our theme for 2010.

we started things off after the open-house with our first turkey dinner in our new home! with the support of my mum-in-law we had a great Christmas Eve feast!

my compliant first-born *HA*

and then...there's Avery

seriously?!...take 345!

{the best of the worst...i suppose}

and then there's the two of them!

{our beauties}

patiently waiting for Oma and Opa's presents on Christmas Eve

this year we were blessed to have jim's family staying with us while my family lives down the road! we stuck to jim's family tradition of presents on Christmas Eve for the first of the girls' 4 Christmases...that's about 3 too many!

Christmas at Gram's!
#3, but who's counting?!

{Christmas princesses}
...yes that IS the complete set of Disney princesses! Anyone wanna come over and help me look for all their stinkin' shoes??


{a very blessed Christmas}

...hope you made it this far! as is plain to see, we enjoyed an incredible amount of family time!

we are 6 days into this new year...a year filled with promise and hope! i completed my first long run of the new year (16k) and it felt great! now to master the snack-monster (read: me after the girls are in bed!)

we are eagerly embarking on this new year...curious to know what it holds for us - faithful that His plan is perfect.

Looks like you had a great Christmas, the pictures are great. From your last post your question about the strike through font - if you switch to bloggers new post editor (i think its one of the last settings in posting options) it has that font. hope that helps.
