lots to catch up on.

hello friends and family. okay. i FINALLY got some pics on my work computer so i can blog at work when i'm bored. so, here we go! there is a lot to catch up on! prepare for lots of photos! christmas was wonderful this year! first of the festivities was our second annual ugly sweater party, hosted by jenny and brett, thanks guys!

the party was complete with treats, white elephant gifts, and of course UGLY SWEATERS!
i also wanted to add some pics of thomas and i from earlier that day that i thought were cute.

every year, our family on my mom's side has a big christmas party. this year thomas and i weren't able to make it, but my parents, lisa and chris took gracy to it. gracy had a blast! she got to play with all of her cousins and sit on santa's lap. she didn't want to leave santa's side all night long! how cute is that!?

"i want a laptop with a little wand..."
when gracy told santa that's what she wanted, he said, "dream on!" haha. he thought she wanted a real laptop. gracy with her cousin madison. i can't believe how old you've gotten madison!!!! you are sooo cute!

on christmas eve, we all went over to my mom and dad's house for some christmas festivities! we had marian, clair and clair sr. over as well. the more the merrier!

christmas morning came, and so did santa! gracy was so great this year, she stayed up til 10:30 on christmas eve, so she slept in and we didn't have to get up until 10! thanks gracy! we love you!

gracy got a lot of great gifts this year... she got two barbies, some books, pj's, clothes, slippers, toys, movies and best of all she got her laptop with a little wand!! the funny thing is, i got this for her at the beginning of october before she ever even said she wanted it. i must have a great instinct! this is a picture of her when she realized what it was, she was squealing like i've never heard anyone squeal before! it was so much fun!

santa was good to thomas this year too! he got some really cool sweaters, a hoodie, the first and second season of "it's always sunny in philidelphia", this cute purple beanie, a TIME book with lots of super cool pictures. my parents got him a really nice electric razor and his parents got gave us each a check to get whatever we want! thanks mary ann and john!
these are the nice pj's thomas and i got each other (minus the hoodies) don't we look so cute!?this year i got some great presents as well! thomas gave me a really cute pair of shoes, and a nice new scrapbooking desk!! i love it! it's so perfect! and to make it all complete, my parents gave me my much wanted cricut!! i'm so excited i can hardly contain myself! i went home last night and tried it out, and i love it! my sister and chris gave us some pretty sweet presents too.

and of course we couldn't forget our little puppy marley on christmas! we got him a new bed, some toys and this cute little red hoodie!! he is so cute i just want to SQUEEZE him!

all in all, it was a pretty fantastic christmas! thanks everyone for all you do for us! we love you all so much.

I can't believe you scrapbook, you girl! No.. I know how it is. I started for only a few projects and before I knew it, I was addicted. I don't know what it is but you just have to buy anything and everything "cute"

Looks like you guys had a fun Christmas. Hope you have a happy new year!
