Our Christmas

I can't believe that Christmas has already come and gone. It always goes so fast! We had a blast hanging with our family and friends all weekend. I didn't want it to end. I took tons of pictures so I will probably break them up into a couple of posts.

On Christmas Eve, Poot and I exchanged gifts with each other, before heading up to my parents. I couldn't wait to give Poot his Sock Monkey Hat that I crocheted for him! He loved it!!


I also had a chubby sock monkey custom made for him to add to our growing collection.

Isn't he cute?

Poot had a special tshirt made for me! The last time we were in Eureka Springs, AR, I wanted to buy an Arkansas tshirt since we got engaged and married there. Unfortantly, every shirt I came across either had a kitten or looked like it had been in the shop since the early 1980's. So he had this custom made...



He also found me this really funny ash tray with the funniest ad. It has our last name on it, Cox, and I love it!


After opening our gifts,we packaged up our homemade gifts:



*I made five afghans in all, but had already given one away. We also made infused vodka, and yes that does say Bacon Infused Vodka! Oh my!*

We took one last picture in front of our dying tree, before heading to our hometown for the weekend.


It was a great way to start the Christmas celebrations!
XOXO
