Christmas 2010

     Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful Christmas this year in the Diehl house! This was the first year I think Parker really understood the whole Santa concept, but unfortunately he spiked a fever Christmas Eve night which contributed to a little lack of excitement on his part... :( All in all, he still had a great Christmas, and he got everything he asked for & more (imagine that!) Along with his fever, he has had just your typical cold symptoms, which seem to be improving (fingers crossed), so I think he is on the mend!
     Griffin remained healthy despite the fact that he had is four month well-check (more to come on this later) 2 days before & got his second set of immunizations. He was quite cranky the first 24 hours after his appointment, but by Christmas Eve he was a happy little boy!
     To top off our wonderful holiday we woke up to snow Christmas Eve morning which made for a beautiful White Christmas! I wanted to share with you some pictures of our Christmas festivities ....
 Parker helping me make cookies Christmas Eve day...
 As much as he wanted to help, he only made it thru the first batch & then he was bored...
 Teddy Bear
 My happy little elf...
 Love his little reindeer hat that Grandma Claudia bought him...
 Cheese!!!
 I had to go outside and get a picture of the house all lit up with the snow....
 Just BEAUTIFUL...
 Winter Wonderland
 My reindeer were a new addition to our lights this year...I just love them!

How we got through this holiday without one family photo is beyond me...I can't believe I didn't get a pic of all of us in front of the tree....Ugggh! Tree is still up....guess we could pretend it was Christmas again...LOL!

Merry Christmas to you & yours!

Love,
The Diehl Family

It looks like both the boys really enjoyed themselves! Isn't sad when it is all over with? I hate the way the house feels without the glow of the tree! Off topic, you have inspired me to re-paint my white table and chairs (almost identical to yours). I painted it but failed to put a poly coat on it to seal it. The paint is scratched all over. Did you use a flat polyurethane or a glossy?

Melissa-I haven't sealed my table yet either, but I have picked up the polyurethane to do it! My mom told me to use a semi-gloss. You also want to make sure you get a non-yellowing polyurethane. I think its water based vs. oil based!
