Christmas Sunday Snapshot- The Pictures You Won't See In The Video

Ni Hao Y'all


If you follow this blog, you were probably expecting Guaranteed White Christmas party pictures in this post and truthfully that is what I expected to post here.  So this afternoon I started going through them and narrowed down thousands to about 781 favorites.  I don't have that kind of memory on this blog so I am going to have to get to make a video.  That will be coming very soon.  In the meantime, here is what we were doing behind the scenes.

We wrapped up our outside play and set up for the event time


Jack did one last interview for a local new station

Then we got dressed and headed to church.  This is Ruthie with her friend Iris.  Iris' grandmother is from Chongqing like Ruthie.

After church we went to dinner with family and then headed back home to get ready for the very early morning.


Jack woke up first and waited in his room until he just couldn't stand it any longer

Sam was a little slow to wake up but soon realized it was good choice.

Ruthie, however,  took the longest to figure out what was going on

We got through our family presents upstairs



Then headed down to see what Santa brought.  By then it was about 6:30 am and the Weather Channel crew was coming in for coffee and a warm up from the very cold wind outside


 The festivities to follow (Guaranteed White Christmas celebration) will be more than represented in a future video.  Finally, after it was all said and done, we still made time to have a birthday cookie for Jesus.


I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.
