As we took our Christmas tree down on Sunday, I realized I didn't post any pics of this year's holiday decorations.
We tried to keep it simple this year. Fresh greens, white lights, and red accents for the mantle and the top of the bookcase. While we're looking back at the holidays, here are a few of my favorite moments.
From left to right: Donna, Charlene (my MIL), Greg, and George (my BIL). Robb really dislikes it when I photograph or film anything in church, but I wanted to save a snippet of Oh Holy Night. Robb told me that using the camera in church is irreverent. But when Kathy Crout was digging through her purse to find a tissue for her son, Robb practically climbed over the pew anticipating that she was about to distribute candy. Nice to meet you, Pot--I'm Kettle.
I wish this picture turned out better, but I did manage to capture the identical expression facial expression on father and son while Jamie opened one of Colin's gifts.
This one I like. And I did happen to notice how much Robb was holding his nephew on Christmas Day.
Does anyone else's Mom wrap gifts in tarps?
This is Robb's your-mom-has-lost-her-mind look. Don't let him fool you--he was ecstatic with his present.
As was Mom with hers. 2010 was the year of the saw. Bet you didn't know that.
Nothing says "holiday cheer" quite like a pack of dogs taking over the furniture.
We dodged the blizzard bullet on the 26th, but the roads in Southern Maryland were pretty slick. We had several inches of really wet snow.
Here is the whole photo I cut down to make my winter blog banner, from a light snow in mid-December.
And before that a late-November morning of heavy frost.
