Christmas Pictures

Not much more to say than- didn't Jamie pick out a fun Christmas dress when we were in China. It has fluff! Its even cute/funnier up close because the jacket has pompoms on the ties.

Christmas Decorations

Sorry for the fuzziness of the pictures- I used a tripod, but with no flash this is what I ended up with.

Our big Christmas tree- in our main floor sun room.

As you can see I kinda have an ornament fetish- doesn't look like a bunch of room to spare- but believe me I could fit many more on there. (I have good genes for it- just look in the archives at my parents tree last year in January 2007). It is so nice to have a 7 1/2 foot regular instead of the 6 foot slimline we had in the apartment.
Langley's tree- I have started her early on ornament collecting!
Here is our basement family room tree- it has ornaments from china on it- cloisonne, Chinese zodiac animals, lanterns and a few miscellaneous ones- we had a bid lantern on top of it- but it kept falling off- so I stuck a bow that Jamie got on a bottle of Champagne from a student. (Yes the bow was bigger than the bottle).
Langley in the morning saying "Cheese".
Merry Christmas

Oops- Do I have a Blog?

Look Pa-pa- Another Pony to Share!

Ahh- the joys of packaging.

Crap just let me at it, I mean thank you for holding it Pa-pa.

Another Satisfied Customer, Now Versed in Commercial Consumerism.

OK so I was reminded that I haven't posted in a while and I do promise to post pictures of our trees and Langley's Gingerbread house- I thought it was much more important to celebrate this milestone- Langley bought her first toy the other day. Yes she is already indoctrinated in American Consumerism- of the worst kind- My Little Pony- and from Walmart.
She bought it with the gift card she won for the costume contest (I didn't know what to do so the card has been hanging out in my wallet since October). But she has been sooo into the ponies recently- and she already has a (cough) bunch. But she really wanted Pinkie Pie- I mean really. So I thought it would be fun for her to buy it herself. And then before I could change my mind we went. At 9:30 at night, coat over pajamas, we went, snow on the ground. But she loved it. And it was worth it- and there was no crowd at Walmart.
