It's SITSmas! Celebrate and Pig Out!

Number of times that I've wrapped presents: over 20

Number of times that I've shouted at Natalie to stop unwrapping the presents: at least 50

Number of ornaments broken (so far): 4 (poor Big Bird!)

Number of Christmas cookies eaten: er...four...fine, seven. FINE, ten. But in my defense, not all at once.

Number of times I shouted “Be good or Santa isn’t coming!”: tons and tons and tons.


So, it’s SITSmas (find more information about SITS here) and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Or I should be PC and say, “Happy Holidays!” Whatever you celebrate, eat lots of food, that’s my motto.

I attempted to take some Christmas photos.



Here’s my daughter Natalie by to tree. Actually NOT breaking an ornament for once.



I thought this would be a nice festive look and would make my son Tommy look like an angel (ha!) Instead he’s obviously thinking, “Get this the EFF off of me!”



Then I tried to get a good photo of them together and I’m not sure how well it turned out. And yes, Natalie is not wearing pants because she’s going through a phase where pants are bad. Now I’m worried she’s going to start hanging out with Lindsay Lohan, who also seems to have the same motto.

  12. I love the glow on the last photo. I never would have known she didn't have pants on- looks like she's wearing tights to me.

  13. I really like the last photo of the kids. They look engrossed in those lights! I especially like the broken ornament count. I may have to do that one too. Lol.

    Don't worry about the no pants thing. Molly went through a no clothes thing and she turned out alright. At least, I think she did. Lol.

  14. I love the last picture. The kids look like angels in that one and I didn't even notice the pantless one until you pointed it out.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The last picture does look angelic with the lights but then you realize Natalie is pants-less and well...Cute pics!

    Merry SITSmas!

  16. You make me laugh re: Lindsay Lohan! Nice shots!

  17. Just be glad Natalie broke ornaments instead of ingesting them. I have a friend whose son ate part of an ornament over the weekend and she had to take him to the ER! Fortunately they said it would pass right on through....

  21. Merry SITSmas!! I absolutely love the picture of your 2 kids with the lights. Definitely a good one!

  22. At least Natalie still wears a shirt. Plus she poses in adorable Gymboree outfits!

    My daughter refuses to wear clothes. I have to pack blankets in the car for our trips to and from school. I am almost too embarrassed to write that, but it's true.

    Merry SITSmas!

    And, we went through a pants are bad phase, too. I don't get it. Apparently, pants=cold here. Go figure.

  27. Hey! Natalie could be as naughty as Lindsey Lohan... (could she?)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha! I feel you, I swear I have used the Santa line at least 50 times today.. I cant even begin to put a number on it since Thanksgiving!!

  38. Oh I love the pictures...

    Thanks for stopping by Merry Sitsmas..

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh yeah, I'm all too familiar with the lack of pants. Maybe Natalie will grow up and marry Colin in a pantsless ceremony, and they'll have a couple of beautiful blonde-haired blue-eyed pants-boycotting babies?

    Just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Why do they have to make it so hard to get cute pictures of them?? LOL

    Merry SITSmas!

  42. I love that bottom picture. I get the whole not pants thing. For a while it was only dresses, and then it was only bathing suits and thank god she is now a decently dressed super cute 6th grader. whew! I was kinda worried.

    ReplyDelete
  43. "eat lots of food" is my motto, too.

    Alas, it seems to be my motto all the time, not just during the holidays.

    Sigh.


    Merry SITSmas!

  63. Merry SITSmas! We have made it without any ornaments being broken so far. It could have something to do with the fact that we hung everything out of the dude's reach. Ah ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  64. The look on your son's face is hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Pants are bad. Ha, If I see her in the National Enquirer I will get concerned. Actually if I read the National Enquirer I will get concerned.

  70. No worries about the "no pants" thing... at least I hope not.. b/c Adam has been in a "no pants" phase for about a year! We won't be home 10 minutes and then there they go!! It's really funny when someone comes to the door and he tries to pull his shirt down so they wont see his underwear LOL

    ReplyDelete
  71. Sorry I am late, but I am making my way through the entire SITSmas list, I want to visit everyone to wish everyone happy holidays! So Merry SITSmas!
