Christmas with the Shaum's
Thursday, January 12, 2012
For our annual Ugly Sweater party Alden scored this lovely sweater at D.I. which actually isn't ugly at all. It has since made appearances in my wardrobe and even graced the grocery store with its hip-ness.
My handsome bearded husband. Isn't he handsome?
East the beast. (Snuggie belongs to papa Shaum)
Brother in law Danny sporting a sweater and stach alongside their trusty pup Ruger.
Papa Shaum. So many things about this picture explain my dad. From the "SUP" on his shirt to the tag on his hat. Also, he may or may not be giving a speech here. Mamma Shaum sportin her new jammies.
Garett opening his shake weight. Dreams came true that morning. Dreams. Came. True.
Notice all the cutely wrapped gifts. Chelse wins that award with all of us taking notes for next year.
Alden and I and a couple of Santa hats.
Ryley and Chelse also win the creativity award. They MADE each others presents. Talk about awesome.
Chelse gave Ryley a sketch of him and of her to hang on their wall. Isn't she talented? Check out the awesome chandelier my brother made Chelse and the other sketch here.
Going home for Christmas was a much needed break for Alden and I. We jam-packed the week with as much as we could and before we knew it the week was over. We are already planning our next trip back since we can never seem to fit it all in. Thank you family for a great week full of laughter, adventure and fun.
