Christmas Day 2011 in Photos

Last night I saw a post by Andrea over at a peek inside the fishbowl about taking a picture per hour throughout Christmas. You know me well enough to know that I had to give it a try. I did pretty well…though a few pictures were taken a little early or a little late. You can check out Andrea’s day here.

8:20 am – Evan actually slept past 8am. Woot! Unfortunately, I didn’t sleep well so I was left wishing it had been even later….though how can you say that to this face?

Can you see the excitement???? I can't believe he slept until after 8am! #hourlyphoto

Christmas morning excitement!

This was my last photo of the day. Evan headed to bed and we played cards with Nana & Papa Don. Now everyone is in bed and we’ve had another wonderful Christmas.

I hope you all had a blessed day with family and friends! I would love to hear about it in the comments!

you are much better than I....I don't think I took a single picture.....of anything! I seriously don't know where my head is....I must be the only mother who didn't think to snap pics of them at least opening their presents! I am blaming our tradition of also having Bailey's with coffee (ha) Christmas morning.

by the looks of it, your christmas day turned out pretty great regardless of no baking and an emergency root canal (poor dewey!). merry christmas to you and the fam from ours.
