Christmas Day :-)

Just before Christmas dinner- you can see that the new baby is growing very big inside me. Haha :-)
Nathanael loves his new Benjamin Bunny. I was so pleased to have found this one for him. I couldn't find any on the internet, and this was the last one at The Teddy Bear Shoppe.

He loves Jelly Belly jelly beans- takes after his mother. :-)

Although it was a fairly warm day for Winter, at least it wasn't Summer weather. No snow, though. :-( Oh, well. I guess that would be expecting too much. Haha
We ended up with way too much food for just us. So lots of leftovers, as usual. It is hard to cook Christmas dinner for just 2 adults and a 2 almost 3 year old, I think.
Ben is very busy getting ready for a business trip, so it wasn't quite the Christmas Day I had hoped for, but still nice. I think Nathanael had a lot of fun.

Our Christmas In June :-)

I decided I wanted to have a cozy Christmas this year. The only way to achieve that, I think, is to have Christmas in Winter. So, we are having Christmas Day on June 27th, which is the closest I could get to December 25th, season-wise, in the Southern Hemisphere. (We have to have it on Saturday, since Christmas in June is not a public holiday. Haha)
Our formal living room is decorated with my traditional Christmas tree and decorations. We have a flatscreen TV playing a fireplace DVD in the fireplace mantle/surround. So that gives a very cozy effect. I just love this room all decked out for Christmas. :-)
When I was in Idaho last Christmas, I bought several Christmas candles and melts, so the house smells like pine trees, cinnamon, etc. Too bad I can't add the scents to my blog. :-)

Nathanael loves all the Christmas decor! :-)

In my more "shabby chic style" family room, I have my white tree, which includes some vintage pink balls among other very sweet, pink ornaments.
The pictures of our trees didn't turn out that well, because they don't show the lights. I can't figure out how to turn the flash off, though. :-/

If you read this blog, I would love to hear from you and have you wish us a Merry Christmas, via the "comments box". :-)
