Day 5 - Pictures & Memories of Christmas Past

Since I am getting to this so late - I thought I'd keep it brief.  I won't get into the memories details part now...but I will share the links where you can see when I posted about Blogmas before and shared some Christmas past info: here and here. 

And here are a few photos from last year:

Beautiful light filled park in our area every Christmas. Fills the whole park with Christmas lights, scenes, you can see Santa and Mrs. Claus and the reindeer. There's free cookies, cocoa, coffee, popcorn, and fire roasting stations with marshmallows. It's magical.

A peek at cookies from one of our baking sessions.

We like goofy gifts if you can't tell. ;) 

Some of the grandkids lined up on the stairway at my MIL and FIL's beautiful historical home. They were checking what was in their stockings. 

My little niece helping my MIL last year.

Elves handing out all the gifts that were under their 10 foot tree.

The goofy door prize game later in the day at our house.

Christmas Eve night. My Heart in a photo. 

My Hubby being a goof ball and offering me a "close up".  ;)

The mess after opening gifts Christmas Eve after mass.

Getting the tables all set up for the next day for Christmas dinner at our house. 


  1. Oh, those reindeer cookies are just the best thing. I am in awe of your organisational skills - mine are getting more casual every year :)

  2. Your hubby is a cutie :).

    Your table looks lovely Carrie! Hope you have a white Christmas!!


  3. I love the picture of your son and daughter! Children are a gift from God. I have recently wondered if my childhood friend goes to the same church as you. Their last name is Fuhrman.
