Christmas 2009

This year was extra special

because it was Jaxon's first Christmas. So, of course it was "spare no expense" time, and we got him his own little first Christmas shirt, hat and bib. Hehehehe..

I accidentally ended up dressing Jaxon like a lumberjack in his hat and flannel shirt, but he was still as cute as a bug.

( I love that absolutely perfectly round head )



We had to be really careful on the road going to my FIL's house because the roads were still covered with snow/ice and as David says, we have "precious cargo" on board.

The grub was good and the company even better.

I still can't believe we had a White Christmas after all. David jokingly said that it only happened because I had been complaining about not feeling the Christmas spirit this year, and so I was to blame for the blizzard and snow. :P

Ah, this pic melts my heart :)



I didn't make anything fancy for our Christmas lunch with the family. We got croissants from Sam's, and I baked some Christmas cookies ( thank you, Pillsbury ), did the Cranberry sauce/relish/salad and decorated a Gingerbread House! The icicles were a killer! I had never piped any icing of any sort before, and I was doing ICICLES?? David's comment? "What's piping??"
