Christmas in Shrewsbury
I should probably write a real post about Christmas, but I’m just now not feeling like death warmed over and it’s five days out so I don’t think that’s happening. How about some pictures?
If only we hadn’t been dying of the plague, we might have been able to enjoy the beautiful snowfall we got Christmas Eve.
Our stockings were
hung by the chimney on the front door because we live in an apartment with no fireplace. Lorelei has a hand knitted one from great-grandma.
Ornaments hung with ribbon because I didn’t want any hooks to fall off and then be eaten by the small child. Glad we only had the tree up for a week, today she discovered that she could take the ornaments off the tree.
Shiny presents! Despite the “only buying gifts for the baby” rule we made for ourselves, we had a lot of gifts to open this year. We are very blessed in friends and family.
Opening one gift on Christmas Eve…
A xylophone! This is her current favorite toy, unfortunately for me. So loud.
Christmas morning means wrapping paper hats…
…and bows on butts.
Of course, Lorelei had to help Daddy unwrap his presents. While holding a knit banana. Yes. A knit banana.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate it.
