Christmas 2013

Just wanted to pop in to share some pictures from Christmas this year.

The tree! And yes, those are a string of Christmas Story leg lamps.

This is my new holiday dessert contribution. Apple Custard Pie. It’s out of this world, you guys. (And decidedly NOT diet friendly, hence the deliciousness.)

Red nails, green ring, leopard coat. It was a Mob Wife kind of Christmas Eve.

I crafted ornaments for everyone for Christmas this year. This was a much larger undertaking than I anticipated but I also really enjoyed it. This little deer is one of them. I meant to take pictures of them all, but was so excited to finish & wrap them that I forgot, darn it.

This one woke up first on Christmas morning and sat here patiently waiting to open presents. She LOVES opening presents, especially when they are for her.

“Um guys, hello? Can we get this party started?”

I really wish I got this on video, but I wrapped my mom’s gift in a joke box. It looked like I bought her this “NapSack” (nap anywhere you want! Complete with ventilator patch! Doubles as an appliance dust cover when not in use!) and she thought it was a real gift (Not that I can blame her, have you seen some of the things they try to sell on TV?). Instead of faking that she liked it, she was straight-up angry. “I can’t believe you spent money on this! I have so few gifts to open and this is what you get me? I don’t want this!” Once I made her open it and she saw it was a prank she thought it was funny. The box itself was kind of the best gift ever.

On Christmas we wear plaid.

I made my brother dress like Scrooge.

My aunt and I did some Christmas nail art before dinner.

My cousin’s wife always brings these chocolates filled with alcohol. They’re adorable.

Family portrait!

I have to say, I was NOT feeling the holidays this year. It was a long year and I was tired and pretty depressed about living at home for them, so it wasn’t easy. However, 2014 is off to a great start and I am feeling really optimistic about this coming year! Fingers crossed this is a good one.
