Christmas Wishes from the Past

December 24, 2011 · 22 comments

Did you check out the winners of the Love Grown Foods granola giveaway?

I’ve been at my parents house in North Carolina since Wednesday night keeping pretty busy.

I have awesome friends who send me books so I don’t feel the need to drop another $24 on audiobooks (THANK YOU, Sara!)

And I’ve been working hard to stay motivated to sweat. Why do I feel so lazy whenever I come home?

However, I’d be lying if I said it’s been difficult running in almost 60 degree weather with sights of the Albemarle Sound. ;)

Tonight, my sister will arrive with her family… and Christmas madness will ensue.

There may be some matching pajama pictures…

I may leave out some cookies out for Santa…

and I’m kicking myself for not adding My Little Ponies and Etch-a-Sketch to my Christmas list this year.

I will, however, be sure to chill in a pile of Christmas stuffed animals…

…stick a bow on my head as we unwrap gifts (hold the Barq’s Root Beer this year)…

…and, if you’re lucky, re-create this scene my parents threw on a Christmas card when I was in middle school.

I will personally high-five anyone who had better “awkward years” eyebrows than I did.

…and I will not be chilling by the dessert table (ahem).

I will, however, be sending you all lots and lots of Christmas cheer.

I talked to Santa about it. He says we’re good.

ahaha my eyebrows are the first thing I notice in my awkward years photos too! They would still go crazy if I didn’t keep them under wraps. Pics are cute! Christmas as a child is kind of amazing :)

Love the flashback pictures! I keep telling my kids that I’m taking a buttload of pictures of them now, so when they are older they can look back and laugh at themselves ;)

I’m about 3/4 of the way through. I can’t put it down… so I avoid picking it up whenever I need to get anything done.

always. I had a real love for My Little Ponies. I used to play with them on the beach, and apparently, my favorite game was to bury them and dig them all back up. I was doing big things as a kid.
