santa and elf

I thought of posting this tomorrow but I am pretty sure I can't squeeze in blogging in a very tied up day. We'll be heading off to New Jersey tomorrow and spend Christmas at my dad's best friend's house. I'm sure it's going to be fun!

Anyways, Christmas is the perfect time to goof around with the people closest to your heart. And it's the ONLY time of the year I can convince my brother to dress up crazily. By crazily, I mean something like wearing outgrown red jogging pants (way back when he was still a foot shorter) and a crazy elf hat. We did this somewhat funny shoot for a Christmas something for our relatives and friends (this is primarily why he agreed).

We wish you all a Merry Christmas!

The funky Santa and her (not so little) elf.
Isn't he the cutest little brother ever?! He just turned 14 last November, he was 6-foot tall then (I don't know now, he looks taller). How did he grow like that? I have no idea. One day he's just the annoying little brother who hides under my bed and scare the hell out of me, then one day he sneezed and he grew. Just that. lol. Now I'm the little sister. But I'm sure he'll grow even taller. What will I be then? His tiny sister?

My blingy not-so-little elf.

You're the best brother ever! Not just because you're my only brother but because you are to me as the elves to Santa. And oh, if by chance you find out about this post (which I'm sure in 5 seconds you will be freaking out), please remember that you said yes when I told you about this...last night...when you were sleeping. =)

To boot, I also realized how terribly difficult it is to be a Santa.

You know what I mean. Now that I'm done with all the shopping, reality sank in. I hate sales. It makes me come up with a really reasonable argument why I should buy stuff that are not on my list. Yeah, I just realized I bought way too many things! 

Still and all, tis the season to be jolly--not for any materialistic reason but because we have received the greatest gift God has given us. He is the very reason why I smile.

Thanks be to God for his unspeakable Gift— indescribable, inestimable, incomparable inexpressible - precious beyond words.

Jesus, the reason for the season Praise Him Pictures, Images and Photos

May God's love reign in your hearts this Christmas and always lovely readers! Smile and rejoice! Have a great time with your family. Let me leave you with this.

When Christ entered our world, he didn't come to brighten our Decembers, but to transform our lives.
