A glimpse of Christmas.
3 1/2 hours of wrapping + 2 kids x-morning = total destruction in 3 minutes.

Christmas this year consisted of Zhu Zhu pets, nerf guns, lots of board games and tons of fun and memories made. Hoping everyone had a wonderful x-mas as well! Don't have time to stay must go bury myself from all the wrapping paper!!!

It's a Winter Wonderland.
Yesterday we went for a walk in the snow and it sure was cold out there. It was so pretty out with the fresh fallen snow and I really wanted to take some more pictures - but it was way too cold for me!
And, I think that she just might get her two front teeth for christmas afterall!!!

The snow was really deep and Max liked running through it for about 2.2 seconds until he realized how freezing cold it was also - and then he was back up at the front door waiting to get in.

It's so pretty when it first falls, but now it's time to dig ourselves back out!!! Ugh!!!

Transiberian Orchestrea and hot cocoa {with snowman marshmallows}.
This past Wednesday, my sister and I traveled to Pittsburgh to see the Transiberian Orchestra. We had a blast! If you ever get the opportunity to see this talented group of musicans in concert it is definetely worth every penny!

Their show was awesome to say the least. The light show is incredible and these pictures seriously do them no justice. It takes their stage crew 18 long hours to put the stage together and they do 70 shows over a 60 day period - totally amazing!

And, we are already making plans to go next year!!

Amazing lights, fireworks and flames, along with the singing, is phenomonal!! Although, I must admit, I am still recovering from a migraine produced from the strobe lights, but so totally worth it.

And, we are all relaxing on this very cold, snowed in Sunday morning drinking hot cocoa with snowman marshmallows and I thinking about all the wrapping I must do!!! LOL. Hope you all are enjoying this weekend before Christmas next week!

I heart this.
If my christmas cards were not already mailed out...this would have been it. But since they are already in the mail - I will share it here and wish everyone a Merry Christmas early. And, in case you are wondering - she is wishing for her "two front teeth".

Oh Christmas tree...
Mr. Chip + Christmas tree = DISASTER!!

A glittery, shiny christmas tree and a cat is just not a good combination. Look at the expression on his face - he's saying "Yah, its back"! The tree only stood for one day until it was knocked completely over by Mr. Chip himself. Everyday when I walk through the door I am afraid to look and see if it is still standing.

Oh, christmas tree...I hope you make it till the 24th!

A sneek peek and the making of a Gingerbread house.
This has been such a busy time of year for me and trying to get everything accomplished there just is not enough time in a day! is a sneak peek for my sister and her litter of reindeer, all five of them! LOL! Except for the group picture - the oldest one was down with the flu.

And, Lizzie and I made a Gingerbread house this past Sunday. It was my first time ever making a Gingerbread house, and I must admit that it looks nothing like the box!!!

Hope you all are enjoying the festivities this month and stay warm and dry I hear a big winter ice storm is coming our way!!
