i love christmas...

I failed in the picture department yesterday. Normally, I am a camera Nazi and I photograph everyone to death...not so much this year. Thankfully, I didn't fail too epically because I did manage to snap a few pictures of my lovely family. We kept things small this year, just my two brothers, my mom, my niece, and myself...it was nice. Here you have it, 'An 'H' Family Christmas'...I love Christmas trees. They smell fantastic...and they just look pretty. The presents are pretty awesome as well. I may or may not like them more than the tree...
Brother 1 and 2. Um...can you tell they are related? Yeah they were ignoring me shoving the camera in their faces...they were too busy watching, 'Big' (holla! best tom hanks move ever!)...
Best. Gift. Ever. Yeah do you all remember playing with paper dolls? They ruled. They also fell apart within like two hours of playing with them and then you had to tape their heads back on or dress them in an outfit that had a HUGE rip on it. Not anymore...these babies are made out of wood! And the clothes are magnets! Bug and I played with them for longer than I would like to admit...
Why yes, bff Jil DID get me a label maker for Christmas. As you can see I immediately put it to amazing use...I labeled everything. It was awesome...

Bug is a freaking cuteness explosion. I love that kid...she is such a daddy's girl it is insane...

This is MY chair. It was my Grandma's and it is the most comfortable thing in the world. Last week my mother sent it to have it rebuilt and recovered...it is so different BUT I did get to pick the fabric so I am happy with it. I just need like 20 years to break it in..

Jon-than was trying to teach Bug how to play 'Hey Joe'...let's just say I do not think she will be musically inclined. He also bought a new amp...let's just say it was wicked loud in the house ALL day long...

Someone needs to school my mother in how to fake a smile. She looks pissed...although this was after like 342 takes...so I suppose she was reasonably pissed...


My family wins at taking the most awkward photos ever. Srsly. If there were a competition we would win the gold medal...don't believe me? Check out these holiday bloopers...

Really? What the freak? That is the most unattractive face in the history of faces...we are legit...

His faces pretty much are awesome...

I believe I have about 9,346 copies of this exact picture...different days the exact same outcome...

There you have it! Christmas is over...sad....but now I am going to go and play with all my new toys. I shall make many, many labels today...

My favorite part about Christmas 09 was taking my baby cousins to see the lights at Opportunity Village, and that was in NOVEMBER! haha I loved it though, it was great.

I love these pictures. You look so cute sitting on your chair! I love the fabric too! Awesome!

Your brothers are doing the same pose. Mouth open, hand to forehead, watching tv. BIG is an awesome movie.

My favorite part of Christmas 09 was watching my nephew and John's niece on their first Christmases! It's so different have little ones around!

I was a total picture taking failure this Christmas... John's sister in law had the camera out at like 6:30 in the morning so I spent a majority of the morning dodging the camera. Let's just say a bottle of wine on Christmas Eve does not = a pleasant picture taking Christmas morning.

I heart you and your family!

That chair rocks! I happen to love the outtakes, so funny.

My favorite part of Christmas '09 was the fun drive back home with brown out conditions. No not white out, brown out. That's what happens you drive in Eastern Colorado. It's the dirty thirties all over again, lol. That and our nephew belching at the table and being asked "Now what do you say??" to which he replied "thank you". LOL. Oh kiddles. Ya gotta love 'em.

I am in love with the snow this year. I am happy my mom is in remission. I am excited to go home tomorrow. I loved watching my kids open gifts and go sledding. My husband makes everything better.
Love you!

I think your chair wins! Everybody seems to like it and I might have to confiscate it when I scoop you up and put you in my pocket for luck. You will need a place to sleep after all.

It looks like you have a lovely family and had a wonderful Christmas. Family is what it's all about anyways.

Here's to a continued Christmas in our heart year round, Lisa :)

My favorite part was seeing my sister-in-law get so emotional when I gave her her present.

I missed the H family this year! If my sister has to work on Christmas-eve next year I'm going to have to give someone a beat-down!

Oh btw I made a blog! Its pretty lame though :(
