Disoriented

Christmas always leaves me feeling dazed & confused.  Especially since the addition of Chris's family and traditions... we spend the days from Christmas Eve until January 2nd driving from city to city, event to event. I'm thankful for all of my loved ones, but the high doses and little sleep is exhausting.

After a day posting, I've realized that I have done my "Chirstmas Post" no justice.  Oh well.  I'm going to go through it and add a little more information on the celebration.  To eliminate confusion I'll make my edits with a holiday colour, GREEN.   

Christmas Eve we headed up to Kingston to see the family... While Chris went to church, I spent some time at my parents leaving before the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life".

My sister always finds ways to add humor to a more traditional photograph.  Unlike her older sister (me), Sarah is not camera shy and really photogenic... when she wants to be. It's still torture having to wait to open gifts when they are patiently waiting under the Christmas tree.


Awesome socking stuffers! Chris and I had too much fun wacking at eachother with these foam swords. 


Sadly, these weren't meant for Chris and I... they were just beside our sockings in order to taunt us. 


My little brother, David.  Technically he is about a foot taller than me but he is four years younger.


The photo-taking frenzy at the breakfast table.   



Usually we have the person handing out the gift wear a Santa hat but this year we tried out the beard.  After Sarah and David tried it on the novelty of the beard ran it's course.  It looked a little itchy & uncomfortable... I wouldn't know though because that's something I refuse to put on.


The adorable Ferris in the cute jacket Chris & I got her.  Ferris is the most adorable pug I know.  She is too sweet and loves cuddles.  



Dolls freak me out, when they are old & creepy... it's worse.


This thing is so old, that the cardboard & sawdust is falling out of his tummy.  Gross.


After spending Christmas mornign with my side of the family, Chris and I headed over to his. Christmas evening & night was spent eating lots of turkey and opening more gifts.  The nice part of having more family, is that the holidays last longer.  Once we are done with one event, there's another we must head over to.


Beautiful necklace is from the awesome Marilou of Twenty York Street.  It was my holiday bling.  
Boxing Day we headed up to Pembroke to see my relatives: Aunts, Uncles & Grandparents.


To compensate having to drink out of a Leafs cup, she needs to be wearing Sens socks on her hands.
Sens rock, Leafs suck!


As the night gets later, cooperation for picture taking decreases.


Really don't get the creepy doll thing. The worst part was that this one moves.


The kids with papa... I'm the oldest of the three, but obviously the shortest. 


Taking pictures with grandma is hard, because like me, smiling for the camera is something she doesn't enjoy.


Walking Ferris is always fun to do....


....Even though we always end up carrying her for the majority of the walk.


The next day we had to head back to Kingston in order for me to be able to make it to the bridal shower for Krista. It was great to see her again, along with other friends from high school and some new ones.  I didn't take too many pictures at the shower or at breakfast the day after.  Krista will be posting soon... so I'll link her blog since she is better at documenting events then I am.

Sorry for the lack of information & picture overload... I promise to be back to my old blogging self once these holidays are over and I have properly rested. There's quiet a bit of tension in our household right now... what's needed is sleep and balanced meals.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday, that Santa spoiled you and that your New Years rocks.  I'm off to Detroit with my love and family. The plan is to shop and party.

Merry Christmas beautiful! It makes me giddy when I see you wear that necklace! It means you really like it, yeheey!

It looks like you had a very fun and festive (though exhausting!) Christmas! Btw, what are you up to on the 30th? Evening?

Your family pictures are cute, I love Sarah! And the stocking stuffers are perfect, if there is ever an argument you can duel over it.

Thanks for making it out to the shower, I really appreciate you taking the time to come. It wouldn't have been the same without you there. xo

Isn't it sad when our baby brothers look nothing like babies anymore? Mine's a towering 6'2 and has been able to throw me since he turned 15. Jerk.

I think you need to steal those stocking stuffers.
.... and Ferris. I want her.
