Christmas in the Rearview Mirror 2014

Ding dong merrily on high in heaven the bells are ringing.

Ding dong verily the Sky(e) is riv’n with everyone singing…..

Ding dong, Gloria…..“….How was your Christmas?”

Our Christmas was a blast. With all the planning and preparing and anticipation that go into Christmas time, ours went off without a hitch. We had my parents and Aunt Sue in to stay at our lil’ B&B and I have to tell you everything just fell in place. We could not have asked for a warmer, more festive Christmas.

Oh, and the smiles? There were lots of smiles for my girls and family.

Wanna see?

Christmas actually began for us on Christmas Eve as our girls got a surprise box delivered that day from a very special grandmother and her daughter.

Christmas came early from a very special Grandma and daughter...

The girl’s tore into it and loved everything they received!

Thank you!!

Thank you!!

 Including some reindeer food.

No, no, they did not eat the reindeer food sent to feed Santa’s team. They sprinkled it in the lawn later, a now annual event at our house thanks to this very special family.

It is always fun to see our girls caught up in the Christmas excitement, and Dylan left a trail of reindeer food right to our front door in anticipation for our midnight visitor.

Santa did not disappoint this year either! Here is a glimpse of the load Santa left before gobbling up the Christmas cookies, egg nog, chocolate and even more egg nog… CIMG0099

And so our girls went to town dismantling the Christmas packages and seeing if Santa met their ever changing Christmas wish list….

It was a holiday created for the movie Frozen and the girls were not spared ANY Frozen paraphernalia what so ever. More on this later….

And Christmas begins with a Frozen bath towel. Meav, of Celtic Woman looks impressed!

The Frozen update?

When Mom put all the clothes away (and they got some clothes!) she counted 18 tops for Skylar that had a Frozen princess on them, or somehow otherwise Frozen related. I am guessing Dylan had a similar tally…

After all the Christmas present unwrapping we settled down for the traditional egg nog French Toast breakfast.

We hope you and yours had an enjoyable Christmas too! There are still plenty of cookies and chocolate kisses here for you, whenever you get a chance to drop by.

What was your best Christmas memory this year?
