Christmas Collage

There were way too many pictures to choose from, and i did not want to bore everyone with a thousand Christmas posts so i thought i would play around with the mosaic collage option on picasa...it is pretty fun!!!

The kids were so excited about the presents...but what kids aren't? The big gifts were the gun and the american girl doll. They loved them as we expected they would.
My kids are special, and apparently very considerate. They wanted Santa to know that if he needed a potty break that he was more than welcome. Click on the letter to make it larger and you can see just what Avery wrote(i think that will work, but i have never done picture collages before). Was it wrong? we went to check the potty and found that Santa had been there....there was red glitter on the seat and elsewhere!!!!!
These were some of my wonderful gifts. Is this not the cutest little elf ever? i think he will be living with us all year, not just at Christmas time. Avery and Chris made me this owl holder for my i pod. They spent a long time crafting this together, and i love it. This bowl is from a local potter, and i knew when i saw the sewing machine dish i had to have it...and sure enough it was there on Christmas morning.
Then we finished our Christmas day at my mom's house for dinner and more presents. It is nice to have them close so we can have Christmas together. Doesn't she have a pretty tree? Thanks for the yummy dinner mom.

I'm a little concerned about Santa's UTI. Next year we should all give him cranberry juice!

Your mom's tree is gorgeous. I can hardly wait to have a nice tree with glass balls. It will be a few years yet. UGH! Have a wonderful new year! Your treats look yummy! I'm still trying to get a Christmas/New Year's Letter together. Had to get my receipts entered into our bank account first. YUCK! Love you!
