Christmas in New York

As if my boys didn't get enough the first time around, we got to do it all over again - this time New York style.

As I stated before, my boys must have been extremely good this year because Santa visited them not once but twice.

Although Christmas at our house was no quiet affair, it didn't even hold a candle to the chaos that took over my parents' house.

My mom had ordered both of my brothers Sigg water bottles but when they opened their gifts they quickly realized the company had sent each of them a six pack. So it was Sigg bottles for everyone!

All the girls received "Mama Mia", including my mom. Doesn't my dad just look all sorts of thrilled?

Mom got a Kitchen Aid mixer stand, courtesy of moi - I have to say I am totally jealous.

Isn't it beautiful?

Okay, enough drooling. Back to reality.

So as I have been sorting through my millions of pictures over the past few days, I realized that this was really the only photo I had of myself.

Fabulous, don't you think? I think maybe my New Year's resolution should be to get out from behind the camera and make it into a few more pics with my family. : )

I agree on getting out from behind the camera. I have noticed the same about me lately,the boys are not going to remember what I look like. They just say oh yeah, that's my mom the lady behind the camera all the time!

I think it's a super cute picture of you!!

Camryn got an Elmo Live for her birthday (the week before Christmas). She's still freaked out by it! LOL!

I'm jealous of the mixer too! I WANT one! I just forgot to put it on my list. Well, not that that means I would have gotten it! LOL!

Your pictures are great. I'm glad you all had so much fun with your family.

I'm glad you all had a good Christmas! You got some great pictures,and I especially love the ones of your kids in the snow. It is very beautiful where your parents live--how wonderful to get to celebrate Christmas there!

Alright woman, I know you've posted it somewhere, but I can't find it...what's the flashback Friday assignment for tomorrow??? :)

It looks like you guys had a great holiday! The snow looks so fun. I'm sorry I haven't gone back and commented on all your posts. I've been swamped with stuff to do around the house, and work. But I've really enjoyed looking at all your pictures. It looks so fun.

And I have to reply to one of your comments on my blog (you're so great about always commenting-I love that!). The iPod was a hand-me-down from Sue. She got a new one, so they called and asked if I cared if Grace had it. It cracks me up because on the back it says 'Susan Nelson Rocks', and Grace thinks that is really cool! That's the joy of being 6!

Shoot! The dreaded double comment. I'm so sorry! I hate it when I don't give my computer enough time.

If you don't have a Kitchen Aid Mixer for yourself, buy one! You will never be sorry. And the photos are great. Glad you had a good holiday.
