Christmas 2011

When Christmas arrives and there’s no snow on the ground you have to improvise. We made a snowman out of pumpkins to grace our door for Christmas Eve! It was my idea but it was perfectly executed by Dale. He made a charming little greeter for our guests.

Christmas Eve was awesome and everything it should be. We filled our house with family and friends, food and drink, singing and laughter. It was one of the best Christmas Eve gatherings I can remember. Christmas morning was relaxing and fun – we opened gifts, drank mimosas and ate shrimp, monkey bread and leftovers. As darkness fell we gathered at Randy and Mary’s for an amazingly delicious dinner. It was all perfect and now it’s time to relax.

I will not be blogging every day this week but I’ll definitely be back before the year is over!

  1. Your Christmas sounds picture perfect in every way.
    You were so smart to take the week after Christmas off so you can relax and enjoy. Oh and put all the stuff away!

  2. Your pumpkin snowman is so cute. In the line of classic husband/wife Christmas miscommunications re: gifts, since my husband often complains that I am not specific enough about what I want, I gave him a numbered list this year, complete with item numbers, phone numbers and email addresses. He said the whole shebang cost a lot more than I had estimated. Can you guess? I received a huge box from KnitPicks with one swift, two yarn scales, and three ball winders.

  3. When I first glanced at the snowman picture, I thought it was knitted because of the vertical stripes (knitting was on my mind.) Now I wonder how much bulky yarn it would take to knit a snowman of that magnitude! It is just so cute! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  4. LOVE it! We got our first snowfall last night. It melted away by lunch. Must say, I’m loving the mild winter.
