Life in Phone Pictures

What an awesome week! I hope you too had a great week celebrating Christmas with friends and family.

Our Christmas celebrations started last Friday, with two gatherings with John Wayne's family. I didn't get any phone pics of the festivities, but did manage to get proof that this week we made time for our drink stop before we left the big city! {Yes, it's dark, it was really late...good thing Sonic stays open late!}



Christmas Eve, we hung out at my Mom and Dad's, watched football and I made green chili for lunch. I do make a pretty mean green chili for a red-headed white girl, if I do say so myself! I made green chili for Christmas Eve last year too, so let's call it a tradition.


That night we all went to the Christmas Eve service at church.


After the service, we drove around Kit Carson and looked at Christmas lights. For such a small town, I'd say this was a pretty good display!


Santa made a stop at the trailerhood!


The Little Lady was eager to open presents. She really got into this year and was so much fun!


Look at the great things her big cousins teach her!

They're actually my little cousins, I'm the oldest by five years on both sides, so all of my cousins are still in high school and college. They are awesome with the Little Lady and she adores them!


I made this peppermint ice cream cake recipe that I got from Mel over at the Larson Lingo. I.loved.it! Seriously, could have eaten the entire thing all by myself.


Besides our little Christmas celebration at home first thing in the morning, we had three other stops to make on Christmas Day and got home at nearly midnight. So needless to say, there was a lot of this going on on Monday.


Monday night, we did crawl off of the couch and go to my Mom and Dad's for dinner with all of my family. After dinner, there may have been a little Wii Wipeout fun. Have you played this game? My aunt and uncle gave it to John Wayne for Christmas and it is so much fun!


I'm looking forward to another fun-filled, long holiday weekend! Tomorrow is John Wayne's birthday...let's everyone wish him a happy birthday : ) And then more fun with family and friends for New Year's.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year from the trailerhood!

Looks like Santa was good to your little cutie! Our small town has some pretty impressive Christmas lights, which surprises me. I also love that Sonic stays open late!
