Christmas day 2015

In the Carney household there is a very important rule on Christmas day: No presents till 7am! You see if mum and dad Carney don't get sufficient sleep they can become monsters and monsters are not allowed on Christmas day. Thankfully the mini Carney's understand the benefit of this rule and keep it by not waking up at crazy early morning hours...

Mum and dad were snuggled up close to one another wrapped in the yellow and blue chevron comforter. Hair wild and mouths open catching bugs deep in a sleep so needed. Jack pushed open the door and quickly slipped himself under the covers and nestled in next to his daddy. Within minutes the three of them were sharing excited chatter about Christmas, presents, Santa and magic. Slowly, the shortest Carney entered the room still in doze until his eyes meet his brothers and as if magic traveled through the air into his eyes the joy of Christmas twinkled. 
Rolling in bed giggling, wiggling, shaking with excitement they gave themselves to the traditions and childlike wonder of Christmas!

Adhering to the protests of the Carney brothers the whole family stayed home, in PJ's playing new toys, sharing all the new wonders, skyping with loved ones and relaxing...Oh how wonderful it was to relax. 

Christmas dinner was spent with family; truly wonderful.

Original song: In a manger

For the past 6 months I have found a lot of joy and peace in writing songs. 
Here is a sweet Christmas song I created called "In a Manger". 

Thanks Kyrie and Alyza for making the video with me!

Christmas is about CHRIST. 
I pray we can all take time to contemplate our Savior and how we can emulate Him, especially during this season of goodwill. Merry Christmas!

Snow day

In our neighborhood releasing energy after running errands in snowy weather. I would say our snow day was a success except for the fact I forgot my phone when picking up Ben from the train station. We missed one another. The boys and I waited for an hour and Ben found himself a ride home after feeling abandoned:( Oh well next time. End of year resolution: keep my phone charged and with me!

Christmas tree adventure

Once upon a time a family of four went on their yearly tradition of finding their perfect Christmas tree in the wilderness of Colorado. Oh what fun they had, trudging through snow, sledging and exploring. And yes, they did find the perfect 2 trees and loaded them back on top of the car.
The over excited mama had her camera in tow as always capturing the adventure for posterity's sake but her battery died before the REAL fun could be captured. So sadly you won’t see the moment of driving into an aspen tree and wedging it into the bumper of the car
watching two brothers laugh and giggle while being pulled on the sledge behind the car and the younger one’s face having a smack-down with an adolescent tree branch throwing him backwards
spilling hot chocolate all over the backseat of the car
a meltdown due to an angry bladder that needed to be released
So go ahead a watch the video but know from a trusted source that the adventure wasn’t as picture perfect as it seems…
Although the Christmas trees...they ARE PERFECT!
