Merry Christmas Everyone!!
It has been a wonderful day filled with kids, gifts, laughter, noise, food, music, and most amazing of all, SNOW!!! Yes, snow here in Georgia- which is a BIG deal (bc we rarely see it- it's like seeing a reindeer in person), especially since it has actually happened on Christmas Day!! And a little un-known fact, the last time this area saw snow on Christmas Day, was back in 1882 and the president was Chester Arthur- how many of you even knew we had a president by that name??
A White Christmas at my front door- Perfect.
The key to making it wearable, was to keep the green only on my eyeliner (MAC "Club" shadow plus Rimmel's Spark it Up eyeliner in "Peridot" $5) and the red on my lips (MAC "Russian Red" lipstick of course). The crease color was a shimmery brown to compliment the green liner- not compete with it!.
This is my, "Ssshhhh, I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus" face!
Me and my hubby...and my Santa cup;-)
I have just tried to soak in this last month of 2010 and remember all of the great things that have happened, even the not-so-great things, but how everything has shaped how this past year has turned out. I have learned and grown from every single event that has occurred- isn't that what life is about anyway- constantly learning!??
The most important thing that has come out of this year for me has been the birth of my sweet baby girl Vivian. She has definitely been the most precious gift we've been given this year...
...although my two boys would probably argue that, and say the best gift they've been given is the motorized vehicle Santa brought them above ;-) Ha! This is them enjoying their new ride in the wee early morning hours in the freezing cold weather.
I hope Santa was good to all of you- and if he wasn't, well, there's always next year to look forward to!! As I always try to remind myself...You cannot undo what the last year has brought you, but you can look ahead and shape how the new year measures up. I thank you all for following JennySue this past year and can't wait to see what new year brings!!
