MN might have been snow-less but we still managed to bring the Christmas spirit and celebrate Schwartz style! Mom had the house decorated just like it was when we were growing up. Santas everywhere and the joy of the season bursting from the seams of the house - I was in heaven! The tree was magnificent. Standing a good 12+ feet, it smelled every bit as great as the trees we used to cut down as kids. It truly was magical to share Christmas memories with Lily, as I reflected on the years that our family had created and cherished our own.
Wow. Mom and daughter getting a little Christmas red eye stare. Someone teach me how to use the quick red-eye correction tool... *wink*
Jude and Lily waste no time playing with their new Christmas gifts.
Uncle Jon's home brew was tempting for the tots...Jude's ready to crack open a cold one!
Snuggle time with Daddy!
Lily's obsession with Santa was in full effect, as she marveled at the hundreds around the house (literally, especially when you count those on the tree alone...love it!).
