Weekly Winners, the Xmas Edition

It was a rough holiday - the Hubster worked (and a double on Xmas Day at that) and well, I worked my tail off shopping and wrapping and cooking and packing it all up and driving it down to Milwaukee only to pack it all up and bring it all back home. Three days in a row.

I'd like my Xmas to start now, please. ;-)

Boys, Xmas Eve '09
Brotherly love
Xmas Eve '09

My brother's girlfriend made this beautiful blueberry pie.
It was scrumptious!

Stylish rocker
My brother Jeff, rockin' out

Playing Metallica Guitar Hero
Some families sing carols and drink egg nog on Christmas Eve.
We drink beer and play Metallica Guitar Hero.

Will playing along
And then little Will sees his uncles having fun and wants to join in with what was one of the best gifts of Xmas - his own little guitar!

Xmas morning '09
The boys opening gifts from Santa Xmas morning

Twas the year of Nerf
Twas a very Nerf Christmas. This is my brother Mark doing what any good uncle would do - shooting his nephews as they ran around screaming.

Got 'im!
D'OH! Got him!

O>M>G> I'd completely forgotten about the Nerf stuff. Our boys all had Nerf when they were small. Annie and I went out and bought Nerf for ourselves (good, rapid-fire stuff) and for a while (just for a while, mind you) our boys were afraid to come out of their rooms, because they never knew where the next ambush was going to be.

Can I hire you to photograph our Christmas next year? Your pictures are so fantastic. Of course, we don't have as much fun as your family...

Denise said...

The pie looks amazing! The shot of the boys with the tree... beautiful!!

Kelley said...

your brother reminds me of mine.

My kids got Metallica Guitar Hero for Christmas and haven't even opened it! Heathens.

Merry belated Christmas, hope you are getting your rest now!

I'm pretty sure your brother rocking out is my favorite.

No. Not really.

The one by the tree actually is. :-)
