Christmas Spirit

We had some major Christmas Spirit in our house this year.
We did the sugar cookies, watched Elf 12 times, listened solely to the Christmas Radio station for the entire month, drove by the homes with the crazy lights whenever we had the chance, had an Elf on the Shelf come live with us, and ate plenty of Candy Canes.

I also was so cheery that I decided I would treat myself to a hair appointment
(mind you the last one was in October of 2010...)
and a trim of 3-4 inches turned in to a butchering of 8+ inches.
I am slowly adjusting....
(and because you all love me so much, I know you will say
"It looks great"....so thank you in advance, but I still feel a bit naked."

Our lawn has come in very nicely, and I love looking to the backyard
and seeing GREEN! Justin and my Father-In-Law seeded, and I am so glad we did it!

AFTER (December 30th):

And I can't get enough of this sight:

Here are some shots from Christmas Day:

After we wallowed in our Christmas coma, we headed out to the park.

It was a great day, and all that was missed was our family!
Hope it was a magical day for all.
