Christmas Festivities

Me and DaVinci snuggling on Christmas.

I found an old prom dress from high school in the basement. It was a tight squeeze, but I still felt like a princess. I'm in front of one of Mom's three trees in the house.
This is the gingerbread tree.

Brent mastered a "Figgy Pudding" for Christmas Day.

Darcy taught Tawny how to make her famous deviled eggs.

We mortified Jazzy and DaVinci by making them wear this elephant costume. It gave us some good laughs.

Vinci seems to think he's the best present anyone could ever get. I agree. Receiving him on Christmas Morning two years ago brought tears to my eyes!

Brent and I show off our new Christmas pajamas on Christmas morning. Brent opts for scrubs these days. Sexy.

Brent and I tackled Christmas Eve dinner on our own...complete with
Brandied Chestnut Soup
Celery Root and Blood Orange Salad
Winter Root Vegetables
Bourbon Glazed Ham
Baked Pears in Custard

White Christmas in Coeur d'Alene

My little sis is an up and coming photographer, so I stole a few pics from her blog! Cool, eh?
Much more artistic and lovely than our photos!

The icicles coming off of the house were twice my height!
