Christmas Recap

Merrrrry Christmas!
Or should I say, Happppy New Year!

Sorry I'm once again slackin' with my posts.
We just got back to the beach about an hour or so ago... and unpacking is proving to be a daunting task.
Our little December bebe has managed to accumulate an overwhelming amount of S-T-U-F-F over the past two weeks. I don't know where to put it all.
Chappell's toy volume has doubled. More like tripled. And it's insane.
But I promise I'm not complaining. We are so fortunate.

I don't know where to start. Chappell and I have been in P-cola for almost two weeks.
How about I just go through our pictures with you?

Chappell on Christmas Eve, 2009...
Mom and Dad on Christmas morning with the "Christmas Ring."
This was mom's solution for baby-proofing the family room (where we spend most of our time). We usually have a "kids" Christmas tree in the family room and Mom's personal tree in the formal living room. Anywho, this year, we skipped the kids tree and ended up with this:
Chappy and her favorite new toy. Creepy Elmo. He talks a lot.
I couldn't get him out fast enough.
Oh, like my snowman turtleneck? I figured I'd give it another go around on Christmas morning. Not sure if anyone else thought it was funny.
PS- Mom, check under the blanket in the guest room. You thought you had seen the last of the turtleneck...
Reedo recording Chaps with her toys...
The crazy aunts... kidding, sisters.
My new obsession. My dad's christmas present to me.
Now I can take pictures like this:
And this:
I didn't mean to make the flower so big, but I'm far too lazy to fix it.
Saturday I got to give my new equipment a whirl and was the photographer for a Smitten photo shoot. As usual, sister Margaret Leigh was the model.
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to share any of those photos yet, so I'm going to wait until I get special permission. The pictures look great. So much better than I expected!
My new lens did all the work!
I loved mom's table decorations...
Chappy wearing one of our old dresses.
Sweet moment with Auntie Smith... I'm like the paparazzi with my new lens... watch your back!
Christmas 2K9!
More later...
Back to unpacking!

Awww, Jonathan gave me a new lens too for Christmas, but I thought I didn't want it and exchanged it for the Wii Fit plus and I think I have made a huge mistake! Your pictures look great!
