If you are ready to be done with anything Christmas, I apologize. A lot of what I blog is for far-away family who can't be with us, and for my husband who likes this digital record of our family happenings. So there might be a few Christmas posts that happen even after the New Year. Sorry if it is just a bit after the fact.
(and Blogger is being very weird and shrinking some of my text, so a second apology if you can't read half of this post.)
If you are still here reading, sit back and have yourself a very merry viewing of some Christmas favorites.
such as polka-dotted, fuzzy bottoms
little girls who think a one dollar Cinderella necklace is one of the BEST presents
(a helicopter for Joey, and for me, a new lens that makes it possible to take photos like this)
a nephew that frees up my hands and lap :)
admiring her Cioci's Christmas sparkles
(Cioci, pronounded CHUH-chee, is Polish for aunt)
love from her soon-to-be-Uncle
moments with Grandmom
(She loves to point out everybody's "pretty.")
little girls waiting patiently
my Dad loving his Lizzie
wrapping paper mayhem
and my most favorite: our little family, all of us, together.
And the proof that, yes, I was indeed there for Christmas. :)
