So, how about a post on our 12 days of Christmas in 52 photos or less?
I promise there are not 52 photos. It will just feel like it. And since I don't really remember what yesterday was... I cannot totally be for sure which day some of these photos were taken on. So I'm just lumping them all together.
No really, I don't remember why Carrie was crying Christmas morning. Probably because she wasn't awake and no one had gotten her a cup of coffee... milk.... yet. Peter is just rubbing his eyes awake.
Insert more images of sleeping, playing, etc. here. Because, whew, much tiredness and recovery needed. Also, in fact, insert Ken going to work even though he was supposed to be off for the week. Also, a chiropractor appointment and Costco runs. Necessary stuff.
Snuck away with my boys to finally see that movie everyone was raving about. It was pretty good. I'd like to go see it again.
A trip to Krohn's Conservatory is a necessity every year. We all love the outdoor Nativity with real animals.
Also, the rare and elusive photo of just Ken and I. That doesn't happen often!
This was Carrie's favorite spot at the Conservatory--the incline train! We had to come back to this spot at least three times.
Then it was out to dinner and I just, just, couldn't resist poking a little fun. She's the cutest one ever.

We ended up going to 315 Mass just like normal though. Only, we were just on time and stood for the whole thing even though this was the "overflow" Mass in the gymnasium. Not a big deal. Until the end (when, incidentally, we finally had seats because of the large numbers of people who left after communion... ahem...), and then somehow Caroline happened to notice this leetle red button next to an outlet on the wall.
And she pushed it. BEEEP! Yeah, it was the buzzer for times up in basketball or something. The entire congregation and priests jumped. Then laughed. I personally laughed (quietly) so hard I was crying. Scared the daylights out of poor Carrie! Hey, she was under Ken's watch at the other end of the row.... Another first for us!
Dinner time! Oh what a delicious dinner it was! We had fun eating on our china and drinking from fancy wine glasses and feasting.
Mom and Dad still had a lot of presents to wrap!
