Christmas Stuff

Merry Belated Christmas!!

I can’t believe today was the last day of 2012!

We spent the holiday in Florida with Bob’s family, but before we left, we had our annual Christmas Party.  This was our third year hosting it.  (The first year we had only been moved in to our house for a couple weeks and our upstairs bathroom was completely gutted except for the newly-installed toilet.)  But, it’s always such a good time.  Our recurring theme: “Ugly” Christmas Sweaters.photoMy brother, Sam and sister, Ellen.

Some people went rogue and wore footie PJ’ newly married Mr. and Mrs. Leggett!

Some people were lame and wore regular clothes :-)!ry=400-11

Another tradition at our party is the white elephant booze exchange.  photo-4Unfortunately, I did not end up with this humongous bottle of wine, BUT…my sister did!

We also play another game.  Last year it was Minute-to-win-it Christmas games.  This year it was Christmas Pictionary.  Bob was the “game administrator”.photo-5Some more pictures from the night:ry=400 ry=400-7 ry=400-6 ry=400-5 ry=400-2 ry=400-1


Clark spent the night at my parents’ house, but we got our baby fix from these cuties:

The night ended with a dance party in the basement.  It was such a fun night!  We already can’t wait until next year!!

In other Christmas news, this little guy was the star on our Christmas Cards this year.  So much cuter than Rudolph, don’t you think?DSC02673He didn’t look so cute/happy when he met Santa.  Apparently, bearded, jolly, fat men are not his thing:2283104578_001He cried so much, he made Santa upset!2283104578_003Thanks a lot, Clark.  I lost a bet with the photographer for this!

Christmas in Florida meant Clark’s first time on the beach:photo-7photo-8He loved it!  He also loved trying to eat the sand.  I guess that was to be expected…

Overall, we had an incredible Christmas season.  We couldn’t have asked for a better first Christmas with Clark!

I’m sorta sad that the year is over :-(…

Happy New Year!!!


Survey Says…

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I feel okay doing Christmas-y stuff.  My little sis is coming on Wednesday to help me decorate the house.  We did it last year together so it’s sorta becoming an annual thing!  It’s so fun.  We will put on Christmas music and drink hot cocoa while we deck the halls.

While we were home for Thanksgiving, my mom gave us all a survey to fill out.  Their church’s youth group is holding a Christmas Family Feud and we had a lot of fun answering the questions.  I thought it would be fun to put the questions up here and see what kind of answers I got.

Use the comments section to answer.  And remember, there are no wrong answers!

  1. What is the most frequently returned gift?
  2. What is the most common type of Christmas tree?
  3. What is the most common Christmas dinner main course?
  4. What is the most watched Christmas movie?
  5. What is the most common Christmas candy?
  6. What is the most common type of tree ornament?
  7. What is the most popular Christmas cookie?
  8. What is the most difficult decoration to set up?
  9. What is the most common Christmas Carol/Hymn?
  10. What is the most annoying Christmas song?
  11. What time do kids get up on Christmas day?
  12. How tall is the average Christmas tree?
  13. When do most people take down their Christmas decorations?
  14. How much does Santa Claus weight (pounds)?

I look forward to hearing everyone’s answers!
