christmas morning recap

i am sad to say that i don't have any pictures from the christmas breakfast at scott and melissa's house. i think it was still early in the morning and i was in pjs. even though these were specifically chosen pjs, i may have subconsciously not wanted to document it.

so these are a few pictures from the fayetteville christmas. my viewpoint and justin's viewpoint.

alan's big gift--a disc golf practice "hole," though i think cage is also an appropriate term here. he has gotten into disc golf over the past few months and wanted a way to practice until he finds the disc golf courses near raleigh.

justin received a steelers blanket that will make its home in the game room. it is incredibly soft, though.
the biggest gifts? the GPS systems grandma got us. this is so incredibly exciting, especially considering how awful my sense of direction can be in big cities.

a new "life is good" mug!
and a new camera bag! i've outgrown my current one and needed something that had separate compartments for my growing collection of's tanya and nancy checking out the gifts that i gave them. i bought a couple of cool bags and ornaments from that were all free trade items. i also saved over 4,000 sq. ft of rainforest with my purchases! i want to encourage everyone to check out these stores for great gifts that give back!

alan and rachel got several seasons of "house" and "monk."
i got grandma a new bag for her knitting projects, as well as a knitting needle pouch.
the other big draw this year? "rock band" and "guitar hero world tour." carmen and maria had gotten guitar hero for christmas and brought it with them. by the time they left, we were out trying to find "rock band 2" for justin. we had planned on getting it after christmas and found the last one at wal-mart in fayetteville. justin set it up last night and is loving the drum kit.
so here are all of our gifts under the tree after we got back home last night. we are so blessed and are also thankful for the time we spent with our families!
that's all for now. i'll be heading back to work tomorrow and justin has a couple more days off before he goes back. we are already lining up our new year's eve plans and looking forward to having new year's day off AND watching the liberty bowl game on friday afternoon! we hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their holidays :)
