Our (usual) cray cray Christmas has come and gone and from the pics, we were all very very good the past year. What was the best part? The Iknead/Coleman/Vaughan family had not one, but two Christmases, The Iknead/Vaughans in the morning and the Iknead/Coleman/Vaughans in the evening.
We went to the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service:
Where I learned that hearing a precious three year old grand singing “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him” will move me to tears, then and now; reminding me of the joy of the real gifts of Christmas, past, present and future. (Excuse me, I need a tissue).
Bigdaddy, as always, set a beautiful table for us Christmas morning:
Again, the food was delish and the company, delightful!
We had a visit from Santa:
and were able to squeeze in a Christmas snuggle or two:
Babydaddy was gracious enough to play Santa for Round 2:
I finally can post a Christmas knitting FO:
Babydaddy’s Handknit Socks
Santa made another stop at Babydiva’s house:
and found that Babydiva had also been very good!
What’s the over the top, greatest thing ever, long time coming and more than well deserved gift for all of the family this Christmas season? Are you sitting down?
(Cue the fanfare)
Mr. Iknead is retired as of December 19, 2013! Retired as in the ceremonial turning off of the alarm clock, sitting around, reading the newspaper and drinking coffee in the morning and what shall I do today retired.
Congratulations, sweetie! You’ve more than earned it! I can’t wait to get started on this new life chapter with you!
