Christmas recap

Hello ya'll!! (I figure I can say ya'll since I lived in SC for almost 8 years)  Hope this finds everyone well.  I myself have some kind of virus.  Feel like I've been run over by a truck and then it hit reverse!  I have spent most of my time in bed so no crafts but I thought I would give you a quick recap of our Christmas.

The before....

And the aftermath...

Natalie asked Santa twice for the My Size-Tangled (Rapunzel) doll.  Once when she got her picture taken with him and the second time was when he was taking a break to go to the (and I quote) "north pole" and asked if she would walk with him and hold his hand.  She was beyond thrilled.  So Santa knew he had to come through no. matter. what.  Even if he thought she wouldn't play with it much.  Even if he thought it was a tad creepy.  Even if he had to search every store and then eventually look on ebay.  He was determined to get the doll.  And guess what?  He did.  And all day I heard "This was the best Christmas ever!" many times over.  So Santa you da man.  If I do say so myself.

Now let's get back to the part where Santa thought the doll was a tad creepy.  I'll let the photos speak for themselves....

They're herrrrrrrrrre!  (Poltergeist anyone?)  Watched that movie when I was 7, had nightmares for weeks!  I have jumped out of my skin on more then one occasion after I have caught a glimpse of Rapunzel in the corner of my eye.

The rest of the Christmas presents were very normal and not creepy at all :-)  I actually got my Christmas present early this year.

There was an awesome deal on Cyber Monday so I jumped at the chance!  I was waiting until after Christmas to try it out.  I have big plans for January.  Lots of organizing, purging, and cleaning.  I think this will come in very handy!  I have big plans for this blog too.  So many ideas so little time.  I can't wait to get started. 2011 is going to be an awesome year!

After we opened presents the girls had breakfast and the hubby and I snacked on crab dip.  Then we played some Disney Sing It on the Wii and Just Dance Kids.  Both were a blast and I highly recommend Just Dance Kids, even Lily got in on the action.  We ended the day with a beef roast for dinner and then a good friend of mine helped with dessert.

Marie and I are like this.

Hope your Christmas was as memorable and enjoyable as ours!

Much love,


  1. yes, the doll is really creepy. santa had the same owl paper at our house! i know- owls? here? but yes!
    and i just bought just dance 2 and emmy and i are going to try it tomorrow night. i promised her. they had just dance kids, too, but me being my, i wanted some booty shaking and i wanted a workout! i am sure my 3 yr old will be a better dancer than me.

  2. Reminds me of when my kids were small..especially Kirsty..with all that pink plastic! Maybe Rapunzel just needs her hair tied just hangs all over her face. Kara the dog opening up her pink plush pig was the hilight of our present opening...she was just so delighted with it...and then there were tennis balls...everywhere!! Great fun!

  3. Agreed, creepy doll! And I've never even had the nerve to watch Poltergeist because I am a big fat W-I-M-P when it comes to scary movies. It's giving me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it!

    I got my Silhouette for Christmas too! Only I am not nearly as patient as you are, to wait to open it. Plus, I used it for a handful of presents, so I justified it. I love mine! Can't wait to see what you come up with.


Connecting with people is one reason I love blogging. So bring on the comments and questions, they make my day! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say "hello!"

I love to reply to all comments so if your email is not linked to your profile I send my comment to this noreply guy. And that makes us both sad. Thanks!
