The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

The day after

Well we made it through another Christmas, in hindsight I would have changed my gift requests from Santa. I would have asked for a snowplow for my truck, medication for the pain in my back, larger size pants and/or  liposuction. Perhaps next year I will remember that! We did have a great Christmas and I love to see the new snow fall all day long, it is the day after that is a little brutal. Oh, and guess what? There were a whole bunch of Legos delivered to our house. Are you surprised? 

 

Twas the night before Christmas and jammies were out.

We had a great service at church Christmas Eve and the Daniels spent most of the day at the house. It was actually relaxful and lots of fun with far too much food, just the way I like it.  Now we are ready for the new year and our 20 year anniversary.

An overflowing truck full, cab and bed of wrapping paper and boxes. We are definitely members of GWAN and we are doing our part. What is GWAN? Global Warming for Alaska Now. You can send all donations through me, or simply keep your car warming up an extra 10 minutes every day. If we all get involved we can do our part to make AK warmer.

Finally a little video of Santa’s visit to our house. Now, our kids know Jesus is the reason for Christmas, but I still don’t understand why they don’t believe in Santa. He was most definitely jolly and by far more handsome that I ever imagined. He was wore out rather quickly, don’t know why. Enjoy.

    Great video! Also good jorb on the collages, efficient way of getting more pics up without overloading the post. Merry two days after!

    • Thanks, appreciate it coming from my blog master. I have been using the collages the last few post due to all the Christmas pics, and Mrs. Claus really likes them, and if Mrs. Claus is happy, Mr. Claus is very happy.
