Merry Christmas take two! Photo blog

Christmas day is here and I was able to spend some time with both sides of the family. The boys have been spoiled rotten, the wife is exhausted, and I received the best gifts in years! Both of us sat down and made Christmas lists this year for our gift exchanges and got quite a few things we were looking for.

John Snow and Tyrion Lannister POP figures! Now I have to get the rest of these! While I’m on the topic of POP figures, I had a run in with The Elf on a Shelf last weekend. We did some last minute Christmas shopping and had a scrumdiddlyumpcious meal at the Golden Corral.

I also got the new Allegiant novel in the form of an audio book! These two will keep me busy for a while. Since Audible is gaining in popularity, my physical reading has declined and I’m looking forward to these.

Yes, I have the standard edition. Yes, I have the extended edition now. The same can be said for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The same will be said for the next two Hobbit films. Thanks!

Chromecast! Chromecast! This is exiting, I can’t wait to get it set up on the TV.

Looking forward to spending more time with the family and getting together with our best friends when time allows. Merry Christmas! Our kiddos had a blast too, even though they do not quite know what is going on just yet.

Until next time, beware of an Elf on a Shelf!

Merry Christmas

Had some time this morning before the kids woke up to finally decorate for Christmas. I tried to surprise the wife prior to her waking up, but she made it downstairs before I finished the tree. We finished decorating together and we had a nice morning putting out decorations for the Holidays this year. It had been a few years since we were able to decorate and we had fun doing it and bringing out old knick knacks that brought back some memories.  Here’s some photos of our adventure this morning.
