A to Z meme. This week's letter is "X."
Guessing I won't be the only person to use this particular word for this particular letter :) (And just in case you're curious - the abbreviation is NOT a way to take Christ out of Christmas - see this explanation of its origins)
Our Christmas season starts the weekend after Thanksgiving, when we put up the tree (I, naturally, forgot to take pictures of most of the process, but do have one). We've had the same artificial tree since the hubby and I got saved in '99 (though we MAY have not gotten it until 2000. Not positive!).
|My son helped put it up :)|
I also display a couple nativity sets, a Christmas clock (plays a different Christmas tune every hour on the hour), Christmas placemats, and probably a couple other small things I've forgotten about (and, of course, neglected to take pictures of).
|The few pix I took came out bad. This one is the best of them.|
|They LOVE their computers!|
She immediately started playing and trying it out, and was clearly having a blast as she did. She was hardly off it the rest of the day (in fact, scroll up and check out the picture of both my kids on their computers. How do you like her chair??).
Overall, it was a wonderful Christmas. (And, just FYI, we took down all the decorations on Monday, December 30 - we generally do it around that time)
How Was Your Christmas?
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1

Fun fun fun! A unicycle? I wouldn't even know where to start learning how to ride it! I'm sure there are zillions of YouTube videos. Thanks for the peek into your Christmas!ReplyDelete
Me neither - gotta get that girl on YouTube, eh? And you're welcome - and thanks for stopping by!Delete
Wow- those are awesome gifts! Sounds like you all had a good holiday. Happy new year!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you, too, Barb! Thanks for stopping by!Delete

We took our tree down way to early. It made me sad but the lights all went out and the cats had absconded with most of the ornaments.
Cats and Christmas trees are ALWAYS an interesting combination, aren't they? LOL Thanks for stopping by!Delete
That unicycle is soooo cool!! Can't wait to hear she's mastered it! =]ReplyDelete
She LOVES it - adore watching her try. Gotta find us some YouTube video lessons, I think :)Delete
It looks like your daughter has a spirit of adventure. Love that she chose something so special to her AND that she has parents cool enough to comply! Thanks for sharing the fun :)ReplyDelete
You're welcome. I had my doubts about how smart it was to get her one after I'd already bought it - but the look on her face when she saw it ripped those away. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
What an awesome gift!!!! So clever of her to learn in the hallway! Also I never thought of using Xmas! Very clever of you! :)ReplyDelete
She is VERY clever (Got my work cut out for me LOL). And she's loving it. Will be a whiz in no time!Delete
What original kids you have. I don't know that I'd have ever thought about asking for a unicycle! FUN!ReplyDelete
I know I never would have. Original is a good word :)Delete
