Here it is in all it's glory. I really like how it is tall and skinny. We can get more presents around it!
And, with no flash. I love the glow around it.
The whimsy goes outside, too. Here's the ice skating snowman I bought a few years ago, after Christmas, of course! That's when I buy anything big like this (that includes our new tree!). The lights on our house are also multi-colored. I think it makes our house look like a gingerbread house. I'll try to take a picture of the whole house soon.
Now, for Part II of this post!
Hailey gets so excited about her presents! It's so sweet.
When your Papa is not around to read stories, borrow someone else's. I love the Johnson family Christmas tree.
Family picture-Good of Mommy & Daddy, but not really of Allyson. Notice that my husband is actually smiling. Oh, Tabby, you could print this out and put "Merry Christmas from the Paces". That way you won't have to draw stick people! :D
Pedro and Mike really bonded. Yes, he's smiling again! Either he didn't know he was being photographed, or he had a good time at the party. Probably both! We really did have a nice time.
