Bright Spirits

We began with Christmas tears,
Instead of Christmas wishes.
When Daddy fibbed to Ace,
That Santa'd brought him switches!
 Christmas morning found us smilin'.
A merry change in mood
As we opened tons of presents
and gorged ourselves on food.
 But the best gift of all
wasn't bought by money...
 It was just sharing Christmas
 with our Sashi and our Honey.
 So now begins the cleanup
Ugh, to take down our decors,
 So here is one last Christmas smile
from our fam'ly to YOURS!
(So thankful for a safe holiday filled with smiles and snuggles.  Here's hoping we can teach the kids to be a little less-spoiled next year cus they sure didn't learn that lesson this year.)

Lily Kate's Christmas Program

Christmastime is full of cheer
& jolly bells a-ringing.
Of all the sounds I hear around
my fave is Lily's singing!
 Nothing's better that I know
than to hear her voice
Sing of how the whole world should
at Jesus' birth rejoice.
 My heart is warm, I'm wrapped real tight
around her little finger.
No sweeter sound, I've ever heard
than my precious singer! 
(Thanks Aunt Hilary for Lily Kate's beautiful dress!)

These two are just the sweetest,
Indulge me, if you please.
Loving, snuggly, thoughtful, kind
and always ready for a SQUEEZE!
They def'nitely have their moments.
A liar I won't be.
But it's ones like in the pic above,
I'll store in my memory.

Our Christmas is ALL ENGINES blow,
so, to Houston, the Evans did go.
 Saw Pops and Gabby,
ate so much, we're flabby,
 Had the best time we ever did know.
 Saw cousins, got presents galore,
had naps then opened some more,
 Loved on Great Granny Red
til our eyelids were dead
 and our unwrapping fingers were SORE!

I learned my lesson this year,
'cus our Hobby Lobby ain't near,
Overbuy in and out
Or your sure to run out
Which will suck out your Christmas-ey cheer!
(One trip to Hobby Lobby is fun...ten trips are not.)
 After all the weekend traveling, my imagination and rhyming stop here...
 Jonathan kind of thinks I've lost my mind with the leopard but I love it.
 Saw photo stocking hangers and improvised to copy them.
 Love Christmas cards more than anything! Thank you if you sent us one!!! I look at them everyday and love them all.
We love you Aunt Hilary, Uncle Nathan, Aubrey, Brynley, Uncle Patrick, Gabby, Pops, B, Uncle James, Honey, Sashi, Granny, Jerry, Aunt Kathy, Uncle Steve, Cindy, Aunt Debbie, David, Tracey, Hunter, Katie, Dustin, Eunice, Quinten, Sloan, Dale, Patty, Jennifer, Justin, Jackson, Cason, Ella, Joey and Brandy.
