Decking the halls...

We've been so busy this Christmas season that I am just now getting around to wishing you all a Merry Christmas! I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with those you love!  

Our Christmas was very nice but way to busy. Christmas Eve started once again with breakfast in bed made by my oh-so-loving husband. Only this year, I was woken up by my Ruby-girl. We went to our Christmas Eve service then to my parents house to start the festivities. I do have to say that one of the highlights of our Christmas has become my dad's gag gifts... and this year was not a let down. My gift was my old hamster wheel... what makes it even better though is I didn't like hated my hamster and there was even some hair in it... Mark's gift was a Pot and Putt bathroom golf set. I'm ashamed to admit that he looked a bit excited. Christy once again got camo (because it never gets old) and JD got a first aid kit along with a needle and thread because he happened to go through his friends windshield a few months ago. Mark and I got a little creative this year though, and decided that my dad should not be the only one to have some fun so we made a little gift of our own.(Mark did the wrapping) Roger's is a local flee market we have so we got him a Roger's Gift Card. We duct taped 19 cents in the shape of a gift card. He loved it!

Christmas day began with Mark and I opening our presents (lots of goodies) then going to church. Our service was a collection of testimonies about the Christmas season. It was so nice to share these experiences, funny and serious, with each other. After church we headed to Columbus to begin the Wimbish festivities.

We had a great weekend but I am so glad to be home and able to relax now... Wish me luck as I start to plan my New Year Cleaning/Organization schedule! (Is it sad that this makes me excited???)

  1. Carrie,

    I hope your new year is all you hoped. I'm new to Faithful Bloggers and the blogging community. I'm trying to connect with other Christians, especially the crafty ones! I noticed we share the same fault . . .the lack of the cooking skill or desire.

    I'd love for you to come visit my blog if you have time some day. Happy blogging and crafting. God bless.
