Christmas 2009

Merry Merry Christmas!!!

This morning we woke up to a white Christmas :) Although I don't like snow very much, it was nice and as long as it is all melted by tommorow, It will all be good :) ha!!
Last night we had the Barnholtz Family Christmas at my sister and her husband's house. They did such a great job hosting, as usual :) We had a wii tennis and bowling tournament which was really fun too. Here are some pictorial highlights from the night:

Did you see my brother-in-law's amazing wrap job? love it!
And here are some pics from Christmas Morning with our little family :)
We opened presents and stockings in front of the good 'ole Yule Log :)

**My sweetie pie, Catalina, got a new bed, (which I saw her sleeping in, with wrapping paper and a bow in it btw at 3 in the morning).

**Adam and some of his gifts:

Some of my pretty presents from Adam <3:

ummm YES that is a special edition Rob Ryan original laser cut!!
favorite :)
This is how much my man knows me...as I was opening my stocking I unwrapped a pack of Uniball Signo pens in black, bold tipped. I literally started crying. How neat is it that Adam knows that that is my favorite type of pen without me even ever telling him that. I love that he knows me so well. He couldn't believe that I cried over pens, neither can I really :)
** We were able to Skype with Adam's family this morning which was really nice :)

And now we are heading to my parents house to do one of our ONLY holiday traditions. Every year on Christmas day (well, only for the last 3 years really) we go to the movies with our whole family. Today it is Sherlock Holmes.
Merry Christmas Friends!!!
Happy Birthday Jesus :)


  1. hey!! the last 3 or 4 years that has been our tradition to go to the movies too!!! that is so awesome that you do it!!! i don't know many people who do :)

    Great husband gifts that you got. Why not cry about pens and that Adam knows you and your wishes so well.

    Everyone likes to have such a husband.
    I wish you a great time with good food, family, laugther and peace.

    Here has nearly every single snowflake melted away. Little sad about it.

    P.S..We need to do our game night -toasting marshmallows, drinking hot chocolate, etc. Let me know which evenings work best for you!

  6. 1. The idea of turning embroidery rings into room decoration is such a creative idea!
