Merry Christmas, Kristen and clan!

That green push-em, swing-back-and-forth thing… I had one of those growing up but mine was red! I didn’t know they still made ‘em! :D (Do they have names?)

Hope your kids loved giving gifts, and…obviously…opening them ;)

I thought we were in mess central! Our living room looked very similar yesterday. Hope you and your family had a great Christmas :)

Love it! Our wrapping mess is all cleaned up, now to face the de-decorating process which is probably my least favorite part of the season.

Merry Day After Christmas to you and yours! I’m sure you and the folks had a great time as evidenced by the mess. ;)

The mess on Christmas is one aspect I am not a fan of and we didn’t even host this year! Luckily my family didn’t go too overboard on Christmas this year but I still have a pile of stuff that I have to find room for. Guess I should really start purging!

How did you get a photo of my house?

It’s Boxing Day in this home, the day in which we do nothing but watch movies, play games, and feast on Christmas dinner leftovers. Kristen, I thought of you when wrapping presents late on Christmas Eve. I used the maroon velvet bag that you gave away a few years ago. My daughter commented that she got the special bag this year! :)

Oh, I’m so glad you’re still happily using it. :)

Hmmm….I wonder who’s the lucky someone that’ll get to clean that up….I usually get nominated in our house. It’s sort of….a tradition. Yes. We’ll go with that. A tradition. Hope you had a very blessed Christmas!

Mr. FG and I tackled it together, thankfully!

where did you find the green scooter in the picture above? we had those when we were kids!


20 Kristen December 27, 2012 at 3:26 pm

We got it from a little local shop. The toy is called the Flying Turtle, and I bet you could find one online if you don’t have an independent toy store in your area.

Mr. FG had one when he was a kid, and he’s got very fond memories of playing with it.
