Christmas 2012

I know this is late, but that is me! Here are some pictures from the fun things we did this Christmas.

We went to ZooLights on the 30th of November. I didn't get many pictures this year so this is the best one I have. However, I was finally able to get a semi-decent video of the Twelve Days of Christmas display.

Mom and I made an awesome gold and purple wreath. We were going to use a real wreath, but when we went to buy one, they were all half brown! Anyway, I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

We took some "Silent Night" pictures of Jeremy. (Don't worry, we used paper so the duct tape isn't really on his mouth, and we used Goo Gone to get the tiny corners that were holding it to his face off so it didn't hurt him a bit.)

See the aluminun pom-pom tree in the background? It is my favorite Christmas tree, and my dad was awesome enough to pull it out of the attic so we could set it up. Unfortunately, it wasn't practical for the space we had so we ended up taking it down a couple weeks later to put up a smaller tree.

Jeremy and I decorated giant gingerbread people. I bought a ton of candy for it, and it was a lot of fun. In the first picture, Jeremy is making his gingerbread man give peace signs. Jeremy's gingerbread man ate a butterfly and Santa candy. Jeremy made up a rhyme to go with it similar to The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. I'm not sure why the second picture is on its side, but that one is mine. She has a belt on her skirt because she had broken in half on the way home from the store.

We had a lot of fun on Christmas Day too. Santa brought Skylanders Giants for Jeremy. I think that was his favorite gift this year. He also got a balance bird which his loves to spin on his finger and balance on his nose.  

Check out the awesome T-shirt Kurtis gave me. It says, "NERD? I Prefer The Tern Intellectual Badass!"

The coolest gift I got this Christmas? I GOT A HIPPOPOTAMUS FOR CHRISTMAS!!! Mom found this toy hippopotamus and made it a little bed in a big matchbox. It was so cool because I love the song, "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" by Gayla Peevey. I absolutely love it!

 I hope you all had a great Christmas. Have a very happy 2013!
