Merry Christmas and Happy Blogoversary! I love the fact that it's been five years and you are still going strong. Your Christmas sounds like a blast to me. Love the "Save the Date" and your Christmas card. I'll have to blog about my Christmas. I'm pretty sure we will not forget this one.

Merry Christmas indeed :) your older son is, perhaps, sporting another new tat? :) your beagle was probably stealing cookie sin the kitchen, right? Merry merry and congrats on 5!


Sounds like a wonderful holiday to me -- and good luck to you and GuG during the wedding countdown!

Loved your blog when I first came across it and I still do. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2013 to you and your family. I notice a strong resemblance between you and GuG in this photo.


Sent my cards without a photo this year - yours isgreat! Now I have a new camera with lot's of pictures of everyone - I'll have to post them this week.

Our celebration is pretty irreverent and boozy, too!

Happy Holidays and blogoversary!

Your family holiday sounds just perfect to me.

I haven't done family fotos for Christmas for a while...maybe next year. :D

And what a great thing to look forward to. I'm anxious for my turn to see the kids get hitched :D


It sounds like you have a lot to celebrate. Happy blogiversary!

This sounds like an awesome holiday! I appreciate any Christmas celebration that features the term "fuck-ton."

Happy blogoversary - five years is impressive!

Less church more vodka, love it! That's about how ours was but I had rum this year lol.

So nice to have a new family member that fits right in! I hope we'll be so lucky some day (but not anytime soon!)


merry happy to you!


The thing about a lion t-shirt is that it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Congrats, indeed, on the blog anniversary--and the May nuptials. I can't wait 'til you shop for a dress!

So wonderful that you are getting the time to get to know him and appreciate him! and don't think I didn't catch that "babysitting" comment. Do you have something to share?!?

As the groom's mother, you've got 5 months to go before the wedding. However, I suspect as the bride's mother, it's more like "you've ONLY got 5 months to go before the wedding!!"

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen

Merry Christmas, Happy Anniversary, and while we're at it, Happy New Year. I always enjoy your blog and your thoughtful writing. I think I might have to add a f*ck ton of cinnamon rolls to our family celebration next year. Genius idea!

Karen (formerly kcinnova)

I forgot to say Happy Blogiversary and a belated Merry Christmas!

Rainbow Motel

I love your card pictures. One year you should definitely try sending the outtake version to see what happens.


cute pics! And congrats on the upcoming wedding! :)
