Merry Ho Ho Ho...

and all that stuff!
we had a nice christmas, very laid back. we continued our tradition of eating chinese food on christmas eve by going to a local place called Ho Lee Chows. funny eating chinese food in korea, served by koreans. after the girls drove us crazy bouncing all over the seats and declaring how much they don't like chinese food with sayings like "yuck" and"gross", we headed home. after the girls went to bed, i managed to write my christmas letter finally. so if you are anxiously awaiting its arrival, it should go to the post office today.

santa did manage to find our house this year and thankfully the Grinch did not. what a difference a year makes. after a slow morning of opening presents, playing, eating, and napping we went to the hotel on base here (its like a 4 star) and had christmas dinner. we all got dressed up and it was very nice. (all though it did remind us once again why we never take our kids out to eat...2 times in 2 days is a record for us!)

i also managed to complete 3 layouts in the last couple of days and am hoping to take advantage of the rest of christmas break to go on a scrapbooking frenzy.

well, hope you had a merry ho ho of a holiday!

move it DUDE!

yep! thats what i say to all the korean drivers (mainly cabbies) instead of another set of choice words...and now my 2 year old feels compelled to shout it from her back seat. haha! she's a nut!

finally pulled the christmas tree out and got things decorated around here. there is just something about a dark room with the glow of christmas lights that really makes me happy. i just may have to leave the lights up after the tree gets put away...hmmm, i think i'm onto something!

got to go to another stamp camp last sunday and had a lot of fun! i like having that time to wake up my creative juices! now i'm dying to make something or put a layout together...but 1st i must take care of some things before i play! i still have some christmas things to make & buy...i'm such a procrastinator! at this rate i will never die, because i will just put that off too!! haha!
well here is another picture of ella...this is how she fell asleep thanksgiving night (and no she didn't consume any turkey)...but of course we had to take a pic!
