Christmas memories

We had a lovely Christmas season this year and made some pretty great Christmas memories.

On Christmas Eve, we went to a late lunch at Steve's Aunt Sue's house.  We had lasagna, salad, garlic bread, and apple cake with cream for dessert.  The food was delicious, and the company was wonderful.  After we ate and opened gifts, we went to their Christmas Eve service.  It was a beautiful, simple service with lots of singing of Christmas carols, and a special kids' sermon, where they all went to the front of the church and talked about what Christmas truly means.  So sweet!


I took lots of pictures of our "babies" over the holidays.  Both of our boys are so photogenic.


We spent lots of time at home, enjoying the fireplace, watching Christmas movies, eating good food.  A couple of times we had our neighbor, Pam, over for dinner and a movie.

This was the cover of our Christmas card this year.

Then, the day after Christmas, we got snow!  Not a lot (after all, this is Memphis), but enough to make things pretty. 


So, all things considered, we had a wonderful Christmas.  Hope yours was warm and filled with love.

Christmas 2012 - the cat in the tree

This is our tree.  We really like it.  However, Hobbes loves our tree.

I hope our tree survives being loved so much.
