I feel like you can make just about any day of the week work for pictures or posts that are a bit late. Let's see if I can make good on that claim:
(they both start with "t" so I don't think this is cheating)
Remember When Wednesday
Stuff That Happened Saturday/Sunday
...okay, so I was reaching by the end. Pretty darn close, though! Any suggestions you'd like to add to the list of remembrance themed days?
Now that we've gotten that first side note is out of the way, here's some fun Christmas pictures for you! It's only a month late! You and I both know that's not the longest you've had to wait *cough*halloween*cough*
Stockings! Does anyone else's Mom always clean up on gift-giving holidays? My Dad is absolutely adorable in that he never thinks he's bought "the" gift, so he just keeps finding more things that make him think of her. It used to frustrate John and I so much when we were little, because we'd have nothing left to unwrap (arguably the most fun part of Christmas morning) while our Mom would still have a veritable mountain. Now it just makes us laugh a bit (both of us) and go get more coffee (just me).
The ever-encouraged "shake this present and hope it's not breakable" as demonstrated by yours truly.
Erin's mom's wonderful mittens find their way onto the hands of another happy recipient! My mom had tried mine on a few days before and promptly exclaimed, "I want a pair!" I (only somewhat maniacally) laughed to myself, since I knew there was a pair wrapped under our tree with her name on them!
You could say John liked the present I got him. It's a lined flannel. The only reason I didn't get a second one for myself is because he wouldn't like matching...
John's first Lush acquisition... that will probably go unused. Which is a bummer, because it smells like Christmas and helps with sore muscles. I'm being a thoughtful sister to my dare devil of a little brother!
Speaking of dare devilness... Good call, Dad.
Dad likes the first one better, but I think the second has just that extra pinch of "je ne sais quoi"
(Okay, so I might know what. I believe the extra pinch would be of "sass")
