if it's already the middle of January. Who cares if I post Christmas pictures now? I'm behind okay? Just leave me alone. ;-) I don't know what it is. I just can't get back into the habit of posting every few days. I am lucky if I download pictures two weeks after they are taken. That is how bad I have gotten. Shame on me. But, because I haven't posted pictures lately what's the difference if I just do it now. So here you go. Christmas pictures in the middle of January.
First up is the present I made for Beloved. I had this idea just come to me when I was walking by an old globe that we had. I thought of the idea this past summer (I think). The globe isn't accurate and so I wanted to find a new use for it. I also wanted Beloved to have something in his office that he would enjoy. So...why not a rotating photo album. I printed a LOT of pictures of our family. There is a picture of each of the children when they were born, our engagement and wedding photo, and everything in between. Everyone is Beloved's office just loves it. Which makes me happy. I can't help it......I enjoying hearing what people say about my projects (as long as its positive. Haha). I went through almost a whole bottle of Mod Podge

Next up is the Christmas tree at my In-Love's home. They wanted to put up the tree so the children could help. They had a blast. It was great fun for them. Special K wasn't sure what was going on.

Our Christmas morning was relaxing (since we opened gifts the night before). It's the prettiest table setting I have had in a while. We had a wonderful brunch with the special china (it was my grandmothers) and the children got to drink out of glasses that belonged to my Great-Grandmother. These dishes only come out on special occasions. So it was a treat for everyone :-) I know it sounds silly, but I think brunch tasted better because of the dishes. :-D
Of course we had to get a picture of all the grandchildren in their new jammies from Nana.

We enjoyed our Christmas gathering with my family the Sunday after Christmas. It was wonderful to get to see my parents, sister, and brother-in-love. I was pleased that we were able to capture this picture of all four of the children. They are growing up so fast.

So, there is a very quick rundown of our Christmas. I do have more pictures to post, but I don't want to put them all in one. Hope you are all having a blessed week and staying healthy. Unfortunately I know have a cold, but hopefully it won't be too bad. Blessings!
