We jokingly refer to our Christmas day celebration as "Orphan" Christmas. Over the years we've collected a few souls who also have no family in town for the holidays and we have brunch together on Christmas day.
Here are our friends, Dave, Krys, P and M, who we love dearly:
Here's our former housemate hamming it up with the Sprout. They are good friends and even better enemies.
In a quiet moment, listening to "princess stories".
We gave the Sprout a dollhouse for Christmas. I bought it used from a friend and cleaned it up a little bit. It used to have pale pink floral wallpaper. I don't know if you can tell it in the pictures, but on Christmas Eve we stayed up late painting out the pink with black chalkboard paint. I think it's a big improvement plus we can draw on the walls any pattern we choose.
