Christmas 2008 top ten

I'm so behind in my blog posting - especially my pictures. My old laptop is seriously on its last legs, and even uploading pictures to it from my camera left the possibility of crashing the entire thing. But, I got a new computer for Christmas, and it actually lets me upload pictures. So, Halloween to present pics are forthcoming. To start, here's a recap of my top 10 favorite things from Christmas 2008:

#10: happy girls under the Christmas tree
#9: making our annual gingerbread house
#8: gorgeous sunrises from my front porch
#7: dresses that make my girls feel (and look) like princesses
#6: falling asleep surrounded by Christmas loot

#5: Christmas cookies a la Pioneer Woman

#4: cross-dressing nutcrackers

#3: hugs from happy kids

#2: enough snow (over a foot on Christmas day alone!!) to say we had a white Christmas.

#1: the Barbie house Santa brought. It has already given the kids hours of entertainment!

**I've given up trying to fix the formatting on this post. The more I mess with it, the worse it gets.

I love all the pictures! Your girls are SO cute. I also LOVE the pillow Grace is sleeping on. I know, I'm weird for noticing that...but I do love it. ;o) I love the Barbie house.... I saw one at Costco like it that I wanted, and when I went back to buy it, it was GONE!! I was SO sad. I hope I find a cool one next year. :o) I'm glad you guys had a fun Christmas! ...and it's almost the New Year! Wow....huh? I'm so glad you got a new you can share your cute pics with all of us! Have a great week!! BTW, the pics on my blog were taken in Provo at a train station place w/ cool, old buildings. I thought it was pretty neat. :o)

Awesome! I love this list. So much happiness. (p.s. I would have DIED for that Barbie house when I was young!!!)

Merry Christmas!

OK, if you are struggling with Blogger and hate it as much as I did you need to go download Window's Live Writer (that is if you don't have a Mac). You do your posting and layout and everything in there and then just publish it to your blog, free and easy - it is FAB-O!

You remind me so much of my niece. You have that great smile.

Your kids are so cute. They had a great holiday time.

Happy New Year to you Christie.
