It Runs In The Family

I didn't ever get to post any Christmas pictures. So for your viewing pleasure (hehehe) I invite you into our home, where our kids are FAR too excited, thrilled beyond belief and overly animated on Christmas !! You can just feel it from the pictures. They could hardly wait to rip into those presents! The anticipation was killing them! . . . *Sigh. . . . Or Maybe not.

Ty seems a little disgusted that his lifesaver book was not actually a book!

Alex can hardly contain himself over his gift of applesauce. Who needs presents when you have your very own applesauce??

Keisha is so thrilled to dive into those presents that she doesn't want to make eye contact with them until it's time.

And then there's Jake. . . . I give up!

At least Beaux seems excited with what Santa brought him! Sheesh! I think I'll trade the kids in for dogs!!And then there's us. No this wasn't Christmas morning in our dress up clothing but I thought I would throw in a picture of the hubby and I during Christmas. You can clearly see that the kids got their stone cold expressions from their father.

P.S. I also posted the above pic so that I have a before (fat face lardo) picture of me. I'm dieting you know. . . and hoping that my after picture is MUCH slimmer! Don't hold your breath though. I've failed a few diets in my lifetime. . . or a lot. . . or almost all but who's counting?

I wish my kids would have been as excited as that on Christmas morning.
We might have been able to sleep past 5:00 a.m.

Yeah, we opened our presents before our two-year old ambled on out, because we didn't tell her the night before what day was coming. We'll just see how long that lasts.

I might accidentally diet soon because my husband is doing Biggest Loser with his friends and I have to cook for him. Ugh.

We collected 5 kids...Yes 5. I know it seems like nothing compared to Jana but 5 is a respectable amount to collect. Hubbie would have continued adding and still would. He would be happy with a bakers dozen. I've said no mas! But if you want I'll buy you a puppy....we now have two kitties and two puppies and he's asking again. I might have to switch to rodents. I don't have enough hands to hold leashes!

You are the most beautiful "fat faced lardo" I've ever seen. Seriously, you already look great! Good luck with losing weight anyway though.

Oh, the excitement! I can feel it way over here!

Your "before" photo is beautiful, more like an "after."

I see that Steve is posing, like usual. The thing that cracks me up every time though is he has the "I'm leaning on a table with my fist under my chin" pose, but there isn't a table. Maybe I'm just delirious because it's late at night and that's why it is so funny.

Your before picture is WAY better than my before picture!

It looks like you just killed all of Keisha's hopes and dreams, and Jake needs to wake up and smell the fact that not everyone has presents loaded beside their comatose forms. As for hubby? He doesn't need a skinnier woman. (you are FINE) he needs some of those applesauce cups shoved where the sun don't shine. Now go love up on that darlin doggie.

They really were excited. but really, what kind of present is applesauce

Nancy Face said...

I busted out laughing at the applesauce...I'm still laughing! :D

Um...sorry, but you apparently forgot to post a picture of the fat face lardo. I'm pretty disappointed, because I could hardly wait to see it! All I see is a picture of pretty YOU! :)
