Our Christmas celebrations have come to a close and I have to give the 2008 version of the holiday a MOST EXCELLENT rating!!!

A couple of things really did it for me...

~ Last night, coming home from Christmas Eve dinner at Gary's parents' house, Sydney announced to the rest of us in the car, "Do you know what my four greatest things are I got for Christmas? My Mommy, my Daddy, and my sisters. They're the best gifts." Melt my heart...

~ Our Christmas Eve communion and candlelight service at church last night. After sharing communion, we sang "Silent Night" with our candles held high. Just Perfect.

~ Gotta be selfish and say that the loot I got was awesome. Gary, and my parents, and my in-laws, and my girls know how to treat me well.

I've got lots of pictures to share, but for now I'm taking a bubble bath (with the Candy Apple yumminess I got from Gary; you should smell this stuff!) and then putting on my Alabama pajama pants (also from Gary) and watching a couple of episodes from my "The Big Bang Theory" DVD (yep, from Gary). I might watch them (in my pajama pants) while eating the rest of the Christmas goodies lying around the house still. (But then I might fall asleep...because we were up very late last night helping out Santa because we didn't realize that a Sleeping Beauty vanity for a certain little girl needed assembly).

Hope to be back on tomorrow with pics. Until then...I hope you've had a fantastic Christmas!

That sounds like a wonderful Christmas (except maybe for the "some assembly required" part). And, as always, Sydney steals the day with a perfect comment.

Now, onto 2009 we go :)
