HTT: New Year Project (and family Christmas pics!)

Link up with Shannon and Daphne!

Our FROG (Finished Room Over Garage) is going to be our remodel project for the new year! I am hoping it will be checked off the list by the end of February if not sooner!  Right now it stays cold and houses stuff we aren't using at the moment (including our Elliptical)!  When it's done...the elliptical will be in use, and I should have a workspace for my etsy shop!

As you can see, it is filled with lots of stuff that we could be using!  There are two desks, a loveseat (to the left), a chair and a half with ottoman (to the right), a twin bed in the back, a bookshelf, the elliptical, a tv and tv stand (in the front right...not visible in the picture), and plenty of other stuff that needs to find a proper storage home!  I'm hoping we get this thing knocked out soon!

More Christmas!

We went to the Christmas Eve service at our church this year.  Usually we rush off to either my family or our in-laws after the service, but this year we decided to stay home!  Little Man was able to play downstairs during the service.

We mainly used the video camera on Christmas morning, but I did get a picture of the aftermath.  Santa brought Little Man lots of books, a toy helicopter, a chalkboard with letters and numbers, racecars that spin, and a few other things!  He had lots of fun seeing his new toys!

We also had a surprise visit from the in-laws!  They showed up 5 minutes before we went in to get Little Man and shared in his Christmas morning experience!

Once we were packed, we headed to Charlotte to spend time with my family.
Here we are with sisters 3, 4, and 5!

Little Man and Granddaddy!

His real favorite "toy"-the stairs!

Getting a family Christmas card picture on Christmas Day (better late than never!)

The six sisters:
#5, #1, #2
#4, #3, #6

This is my parents after they opened the present the mister and I gave them. 
It's a painting of their house.  They moved in May 1990, and are set on moving sometime in the near future.  So this will be a reminder of our old house! (maybe they'll stay there awhile longer though!)

Later Christmas night...the snow began to fall!!
More snow pictures tomorrow!

Happy Tuesday y'all!!

Little man in his PJ's...so cute! I want to hug him!

I have 2 sisters and it is so awesome! I think we never have dull moments...I bet it's even crazier with 6!

I think you FROG room sounds like it is going to be totally awesome I can't wait to see how it turns out! I am so jealous of your future crafty spot...I totally take over our computer room and call it my craft room...lets just say my boyfriend hates that!

Little Man looks so completely adorable in his little flannel pj's I just love them! Your Christmas looked so super happy! I would loooove a big family like yours someday!
