Christmas Summarized

Christmas is over.
Surprisingly Christmas is the day I probably take the least amount of pictures.
I decided I think Christmas should just be lived in the moment, since the joy of christmas is over so fast, and the best moments are in the anticipation before the actual day anyway.
so I don't worry about bringing out my camera in the morning to try and capture all the moments. 

But christmas was GREAT! 
on Christmas Eve we saw our traditional movie.
This year choosing the movie brought all sorts of contention and drama, but we finally all settled on "How Do You Know?"
The Latest Reese Witherspoon movie. I'm ashamed to say this was partially my idea.
The movie was TERRIBLE.
But on the positive side, Reese looked good.

Christmas day was good too. Opening presents with my family is always special. We had a lovely Borup side of the family breakfast, and then we went over to my Hirschi side and ate dinner and opened presents again, Braden was able to come too.
The whole day was perfect, I really loved spending all of that time with my family and other loved ones. 

Here are some pictures that I did take over the holiday...

The Borup side nativity. Yes I am Mary.

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday! :)


  1. I'm glad to see you taking some responsibility for the movie choice. ;) BTW, Reese always looks good.
