a bookish mom of two daughters, and her wannabe fairyland world.
oh I love it! hope you all had a great day, despite the early hour start :) this is the 4th or 5th day in a row that J has gone to bed approaching 9pm --- that ends today!! she was wiped after today! i'm wiped after eating a ton of random cheeses and meat -- ugh. i'm eating soups and salads for a month, i just can't eat very much rich food anymore! did your rice pudding turn out nice?
I didn't have a chance to make it last night, so Big Sis and I had it this morning. It was yummy. It was her second breakfast, of course, after her 5 AM mac and cheese thing. UGH. Mine still fell asleep super-late. I should be asleep, too! My mother and company come into town tomorrow! I'm so tired I'm wired. Hate that feeling! I made Christmas lasagna and salad for dinner. Despite many false starts (and many trips to Walgreen's for Mr. B, as it was the only place open and we kept running out of everything), dinner finally happened, everyone opened presents, and everyone seemed happy. Whew!I was too tired to put all that in a post, so I made a hodgepodge of random pictures I never used on the blog. Then I typed all that to you anyway! Woo-hoo! :) I'm punchy. Time for bed. Good night, and merry, merry, merry Christmas! Can't wait to hear how yours turned out!
I love your collage! Looks like a great Christmas Day! It was fun seeing the before, during and after pics on your instagram!
Unfortunately, only a couple pictures (the Instashots) are from actual Christmas Day. Among the many, many things that went wrong on my end, I forgot to charge my good camera. But that's another post...Merry, merry Christmas!
Aw it's all so special and fun. I love it.
It was white! And we were all operating on minimal sleep, because my darling daughters decided to get up at 4 AM, and pester Daddy until 5 AM to get up and make breakfast. Santa didn't leave the house until closer to 1:30, so you can see how little sleep Mom and Dad had...Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day!
What a magical christmas you had!! And snow too!?! you lucky ducks! :D everything is so festive and pretty--- your girls will treasure these times!
We did have a white Christmas this year! The snow from a few days before held on until Saturday. Yesterday, the temps plummeted again. The 25th was not my best day, but it's yet another reason not to rush the season. Christmas isn't over yet! :) Merry Christmas!
