Merry & Bright

I survived Christmas...

If you think this is funny, wait until you see...

This was our Christmas card picture. I know Locke looks pissed, but someone gets sacrificed every year. Guess who's year it was?

Hope your Christmas was merry and bright!

Ours was.

Well, merry and bright and very messy!


My kids favorite tradition is the poppers we have every year at Christmas lunch. Who knew paper crowns and cheap toys could bring so much joy?

I am looking forward to another year with all of you!! Thanks for being the best readers ever!!! xo Sissy

  1. Definitely a Merry and Bright time (that's what our Christmas cards said this year). Locke looks precious even if he is pissed off. And your living room looks beautiful even covered in wrapping paper! Oh, and Clay's "I'm So Money" shirt in the last shot is priceless. Looking forward to another year of reading your blog (and maybe we can do another meet-up in Atlanta)!
