Our Christmas

Cousin Seth. Everytime I post him here I get inquiries about his relationship status. Yes, he's single. And looking. And he also hates that I pimp him out on my blog. But hey, anything for the greater good, right girls?

Anything sweeter than a sleeping babe on Christmas Eve? Anything? I think not.

My girls. 

Christmas Eve service

He sat and stared at this train for hours Christmas morning. Precious I say.

Cousin Terra. Who is also Seths sister. Who is also my sister-in-law because she married Robs brother. Got that? 

Cousins. First and second. Because of the whole cousins marrying brothers thing...

Grandpa making bonya. A Christmas tradition. Consists of garlic, sardines, anchovies, butter and oil sauteed together until it's brown mush. We eat it with cabbage and it smells pretty bad. But tastes oh so good.

A few highlights from our Christmas:

- Gunner running downstairs Christmas morning and freaking the freak out because Santa brought him a skateboard. That's right, my four year old asked for a skateboard and asked me if I would take him to the skate park when no one was there and teach him how to skateboard. Lord help me if I have a little skater boy on my hands...

- Colt and just his awe of it all. This was the first Christmas where he really got it and it just made my cold heart all kinds of momma happy.

- It snowed for the first time, like really really snowed, on Christmas Day. For some reason, we always seem to get a good helping of snow every year on Christmas Day. God loves us extra much here in good ol' Tri-Cities I presume.

- And finally, while the whole fam was just hanging out in front of the big screen, we somehow failed to notice that Shrek The Third was over and a lusty adult movie had started. We were busy talking to each other not really paying attention when my cousin looked up and said, "um, I think someone may want to change the channel." And right at that moment, everyone turned and looked, including my husbands parents and sweet little Gunner, to see a big ol' pair of exposed tatas. Panic ensued as we all tried to find the remote and finally, the channel was changed right as exposed booby girl was giving her man a special Christmas "present."

Memorable to say the least.
