I could kick myself (actually I am pretty sure I am not coordinated enough to make that happen, but you get the point, I am annoyed with myself.) There were SO MANY cameras and digital devices out during the holidays (even 7 year old Macon was snapping shots with a camera Santa brought her) that I was lazy and relied heavily on my iphone to capture our Christmas memories.
So admittedly this random bunch of photos instead the beautiful gallery of my dreams but at least you will get to share in some of my favorite Christmas moments from 2009.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I did. I loved being with my family. I loved watching the girls open up their presents. And I loved getting pampered at Pinehurst. (I know, it is about building character not being comfortable but a little pampering sure is nice.)
My favorite quotes were when my niece Macon told her father, “Dad, Lulu (that’s me) knows everything so don’t mess with her.” Yes, she is a brilliant 7 year old.
And I probably will get in trouble for this one but I thought it was hilarious. After having a conversation about using the Lord’s name in vain my sister reprimanded 5 year old Anne Shelton by asking, “do you want to be left behind?” I misunderstood and thought she was talking about “the second coming” and questioned her thinking it was a wee bit extreme. Thankfully she just was asking Anne Shelton if she wanted to be left out of the fun afternoon activities.
Any fun stories you want to share?
