Photo-a-day; days 14-20

20 Dec

The 14th Henry flew home from the UK and Europe after being gone for two weeks. I picked him up from the airport and we went straight to dinner with his brother and wife and then from there to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra.  A guy that Henry works with let us have his club box seats for the night, which was especially nice for Asia, my sister-in-law, since she is 25 weeks pregnant!

Day 14, 15 & 16 – Christmas Tree, Favorite Christmas Song and Outside Christmas Lights – it was a Christmas Concert so I’m making it count 🙂 Christmas Canon Rock by TSO is one of my faves, however there are too many to count and there were plenty of Christmas lights during the concert.  We haven’t driven around yet to see lights, however we’ve done many of walks around our neighborhood admiring them!

Day 17 – Presents

Well the 16th was my 30th birthday and Henry took me to concert for that.  We’ve decided during this holiday season not to do gifts for a couple of reasons (hard to take back to Europe, we don’t NEED anything…) and instead we’re going to support a family with hardship so they are able to continue to send their children to St. Agnes Catholic School, our local parish

Just for fun, my neighbor Alex decided to get 30th birthday candles and a beads for me to wear for Saturday nights dinner

Day 18 – Stockings

We don’t have our stockings up this year, and not many decorations to begin with.  The stockings were sent to Switzerland and I probably would not have put them up regardless, maybe placed them somewhere instead.  I was so worried that this year Henry would just give one of them a little tug and the reindeer holder would come crashing down on him.

Anyway I did order T’s matching stocking this year:

Day 19 – Candy Cane

Santa came on Saturday morning, and he was riding on a fire truck.  We whisked the kids outside and the firemen brought both boys a candy cane.  Henry was in heaven with a real fire truck at his house!!  It all happened so quickly that we didn’t get a pic.

Here is our Santa photo from the weekend – their outfits kind of resemble candy canes!

Day 20 – Tree Topper

Each morning when Henry’s home, he gets up quite early to do his Europe calls.  This is a perk because that means when I wake up there is always fresh coffee awaiting me in the kitchen.  With that fresh coffee comes a little love note from the hubby; and I kid you not, this was the note this morning 🙂
