|The view of the slush from Mom's bedroom window this morning|
|The ones wrapped in brown paper on the right were from Santa|
|Mom's cutest present|
Here are presents Mom got from her mom and sisters. Nothing specifically for us this year, but I dare say we'll have some fun with those plastic horses when Mom's not around. XD
|Worth noting: the fuzzy thing with penguins on it is a pair of pajama pants.|
Also, the fox can be microwaved, so he's a heating pad and cuddly stuffed animal all in one!
And here's the haul from Mom's aunt, uncle, and cousin:
- That gift card came in the snowman, which has a ribbon loop on it so it can be an ornament. =)
- The caramel corn is drizzled with a little chocolate. Such a good idea!
- The glass zebra belonged to Mom's grandma - she had it in her room when she was a girl and kept it the rest of her life. Mom's aunt spray painted the base sky blue, got it re-corded so that the light works again, and surprised Mom with it for Christmas. <3
|Pretty cool, right?|
Mom's going to try a longer light bulb so that the zebra lights more evenly, but for now there's a nice Christmas-y red one in the base.
To conclude, here are two shots of the four of us and our cousins by the tree in our holiday best.
|Getting the top two rows of us to stand nicely was not easy. |
Lots of falls into the tree and attempted face plants later, Mom managed to snap this.
|Top row: Amber, me (Bethany), Hailey|
Middle row: Autumn, Lily, and Felicity
Bottom row: Julie, Rosa, and Zoe
