A Fabulous Epp Family Christmas

I love the holidays, and I’m always sad when Christmas is over.  All the baking, the cooking, the excitement of gift giving, wrapping, Santa Clause and family comes to a swift end.  And, it’s back to reality!  A few highlights for us were Callie finding her present from Santa, hidden in the garage, so I had to change things up a bit and make her gigantic princess castle from us and her Tablet from Santa.  It worked out because even though she thought she wanted to princess castle more than the Tablet, she’s ended up playing with the Tablet ever since…and the castle’s already collecting dust.  Go figure!  Clayton really got into it this year, but he got annoyed when he couldn’t just open and play with each gift rather than opening them all then playing with the ones he chose.  So  many choices!  My friend helped me make Shannon a few lamps out of Pendelton Whiskey bottles. Shannon and I met at the Pendelton Round Up, so there was definitely special meaning and he loved them.  He bought me a new coat and a cute winter hat…so I was a happy momma!  I wanted to share a few pictures from our spectacular holiday with all of you!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well!
