Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much for all of the cards, gifts, and nudges! It's nice to know that my cyber-family still cares. I'm sorry to have dropped off the face of the earth. I'm hardly ever able to get online anymore, and when I do, it's mostly spent catching up massive amounts of email. Things have been tough lately, so I appreciate everyone who's been holding us in prayer and sending awesome energy our way. I may speak more on that later, but for now, let's revel in the good!

We got to visit my dad, step-mom Kathy (they're split, so we rarely get to see them), and little brother Adam. It was so wonderful to see the girls playing with them. They racked up – scoring Christmas from Santa, Grandpa, and then Grandma too! I forgot my camera for the grandma fun, but there are still plenty of cute ones to revel in.

Adam, Ivy, Dad, and Eden

Ivy gets “The Claw”. Ah, memories...

Our infamous mantle. 'Twas erected our first Christmas, for the stockings (of course), and it usually has a place of honor in the middle of our wall (moved this year for our tree). Josh keeps trying to talk me into taking it down, but I refuse. I love my mantle.

Eden chose the Cinderella dress at the store, but it ended up being way too small.

My pretty princesses. (Ivy refused to wear the shirt)

They both got new tables.

Eden's is red, her favorite color.

Ivy got a new doll, and promptly drew all over it's face. She has this compulsion...every doll in the house.

So I told her to clean it up.

She loves her gift from lessthan90sheep. My Lil Ponies are some of her favorite toys.

Eden likes hers, too – especially since it shares her birthday AND has red hair like her. Weet!

My very special gift went in my amulet, and her cardboard place-holder came out. :) I wear it in my hair until I can get a new strap.

lessthan90sheep also gave me one kick-ass amethyst, which I think I'm going to have Josh put into a walking stick for me.

Being a bit broke this year, Josh's only gift from me was a nice glass of homemade eggnog. But he's never had homemade eggnog, and it had rum & brandy – a bonus for me, since I can never get him to drink with me. (I hate eggnog, so I had a Christmas margarita).

Since he had nothing to actually unwrap, I let Josh open my last gift from my sweet friend. Score for Rumi & Dhammapada! (I also received a 365 Days of Rumi book from tadeudz not long ago, but I've been saving it to start tomorrow. :D)

Daddy & Eden break it down with the drum-kit fun Santa brought for Eden. Here you see Josh on drums and maracas, while Eden's on tambourine and castanets.

Once I saw my amethyst pic and realized I still had that damn bow on my head, I decided to get Achaiah in on the Christmas spirit.

And bonus pics! These were from like November, but my sister Tina took me and Lyz out to buy us some wigs. Why? Because we wanted to be fabulous! Do you really need a reason to get dressed up in saucy wigs and hit the town? I've always wanted wigs, and now I'm jonesing for a whole collection. (I tried on a grey one and I was totally right – I'd look freaking awesome with grey hair).

Admit it – we are just SO fabulous!

Ivy's got a Gangsta-Grill

Eden brings it home to the Westsiiiiiiide

I love my hair.

Wiggin Out.

Happy New Year! You'll hear from me again soon, honest.

They certainly are! It's so easy to forget how big they've gotten.

Thank you so much! We're hanging in there. I can't wait to start that awesome Rumi book! Much hugs and love to you too. I hope yours is spectacular!

Your girls are so cute!

I'm glad they liked their gifts :)

(and sorry about the business with your Rumi book. I'll try to remedy it in some way, I promise)

We all loved our gifts! Don't worry about the Rumi book. I'm just sorry that they duped you.

I love you a lot! You're too good to me as it is. :)

Great pics!
Oh, my...Eden's hair is FANTASTIC! I told hubby I wanted to keep having kids until we had a redhead, lol. My youngest looked red when he was born...but is now a blonde :(. He's still cute, lol :)

Wishing you gentleness and prosperity in the new year!!!

Thank you so much! We lucked out that she looks so much like her daddy. :)

I hope you have a joyous new year as well!

Awesome Christmas pics. Love the 'rockin' out pic with Josh and Eden. So cute. And you gals do look cute with wigs. I love my wigs. Makes hair prep time really fast. LOL

Thank you so much! We had a whole lot of fun. Three cheers for wigs! I haven't been wearing mine as often as I should. I'm afraid it's too obvious most of the time. *blush* Gonna start trying it more - especially in winter. That thing's warm! :D
Jan. 2nd, 2008 06:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah, they can be warm. If you really like the look of it, but feel it's too 'wiggy', you can get it thinned or trimmed. I have to get mine thinned or else it looks like I've got a.. well, a whole lot of something hairy on my head. :)
