Loved the past two days of family giving and receiving!!
The photos,as always, are priceless. You have a way of capturing so much with just one snap!

It was a perfect Christmas….thanks for spoiling me again!

Love to you, Marshall and the pups!

I love all of these pics, but ESPECIALLY love Momma B’s kitchen stools!! How cool are they?!!?

HPG December 25, 2012 at 11:34 pm

Love your capturing of “the face”! I love seeing “the face” too, it’s my favourite part of Christmas. Marshall really looks like his Dad, doesn’t he. Merry Christmas :)

RainStorm December 26, 2012 at 2:14 am

Merry Christmas! Looks like you had a lovely family-filled couple of days! Just one question – Parmesan on popcorn?!

Lauren December 26, 2012 at 6:14 am

What an amazing holiday you all had! I always forget about your traditional grocery store trips for the less fortunate and ALWAYS think how badly I want to do this. It’s such a great idea and so simple. So glad you had a wonderful holiday with your incredible family. :)

katie December 26, 2012 at 6:22 am

Merry Christmas to you and your amazing family! <3

So happy you had a wonderful holiday and lots of fun with the family! Love you and have a great day today <3

Lindsay December 26, 2012 at 7:22 am

I loved all those pictures! After awhile, I really felt like I was there haha :) Happy Holidays!!

Karey @ Nutty About Health December 26, 2012 at 7:24 am

Randy is just too funny!! Great pics! My husband & I also went to see Django Unchained yesterday & thought it was AMAZING!! Loved it! :)

Giselle Schroer December 26, 2012 at 9:24 am

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas! Love the owl chai tea! So cute!

Carli December 26, 2012 at 10:23 am

What a terrific Christmas! Love your photos … they are all so wonderful! The owl canister on the tea is so cute.

Nicole C December 26, 2012 at 11:12 am

What a great recap! I love all the photos! My camera broke so I only had my junky phone. Looks like your Christmas was just the way it should be, with family.

I think I will be heading up your way for the weekend. Snowy New Years?

Annette@FitnessPerks December 26, 2012 at 11:46 am

Love the pictures! What a fun family celebration :)

Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning December 26, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I LOVE your family!!! Your traditions are the best- especially shopping for needy families! Looks like everyone got some great stuff and you had so much fun together.
We went to the movies too (we have for as long as I can remember…) and saw Les Mis (we’ve all seen the musical several times, so this was cool). I want to see Django too though! Good to know that it’s worth it! Les Mis was great- but not as good as the Hobbit!

Janetha December 26, 2012 at 12:45 pm

CANNOT WAIT for les mis! it’s my fave!

Sarah December 26, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I love your family. Maybe we can convince Lulu to marry your nephew and we can be cousins? Enjoy your time with the crew & your sweet guy. <3

Audrey's Mamma December 26, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Best gift opening pics ever. I try to get good photos and fail. every. year.

melissa December 26, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Merry Christmas! Glad you had a fabulous holiday!

thanks for the review on the movie, I was wanting to see that one too.

And I demand a review of that coffee alternative!

Janetha December 26, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Haha I am all over it!

jennyv December 26, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Love Momma B’s kitchen stools!! So neat!

Also, I think the ‘face’ pics are fantastic. I really want to capture everyone’s Christmas ‘face’ next year — would be a cute little coffee table book, don’t you think? :)

Janetha December 26, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Great idea!

karina December 26, 2012 at 8:08 pm

oh apples to apples….wouldnt be christmas without it haha

glidingcalm December 26, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Laura December 26, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Merry Christmas! Those earrings are gorgeous.

Angela December 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm
