Christmas was Awesome!

I loved my Christmas day-it was family, food, fun filled and it was blessed.

It had grand children…

It had 4 generations…christmas 013

It had lots of presents…

It had lots of good food-again no pictures of food-we get to eating when that happens.

It especially had lots of love and memories…christmas 034

It had a little chaos with 24 plus opening gifts and all in one place…

Nanny and Poppy were there with all 4 children and their families. We truly believe in the reason for the season and we were thankful for a good family day.We ended the day playing games and singing. What could be better than that?

It didn’t matter what the gifts were –there were thoughtful ones and we even played Dirty Santa with the grown-ups but nobody really got dirty and everyone was happy.

I’m especially happy to have Bama Princess home-

She got a day after Christmas surprise we hope will work out okay- a young man who was driving fast and texting, hit and probably totaled her little red Beetle . Thankfully she wasn’t in it or getting out of it-it was in front of her brother’s house. A car can be replaced but my baby cannot, so all is well .

Christmas is definitely a special day- we think of it as Jesus Birthday and we are thankful we have Him in our hearts and homes. It makes special times more special.

Hope your Christmas was blessed!

Be blessed as we have this last week of 2008.

I know you had an awesome time. Whitney looks so much like you in that last picture, just as pretty as her mama. :)

Looks like a wonderful day for sure!
That's too bad about your daughter's car, and yes, so thankful she wasn't in it. That's one thing I've insisted that Chels don't do, text & drive. Hopefully she's heeded. I'll tell her your daughter's experience.
God bless

You did have a wonderful Christmas didn't you?? I am so glad your baby was not in the car. Texting and driving is not a good combination. I'm not even sure cell phones should be allowed in vehicles period!!!

I love the picture of Nanny and Ashley. I think it should be framed and sit on your mantle next to the picture of you and Ashley when she was pregnant with Emma. I think that picture was taken at my house at her baby shower. Anyway they go together nicely. Blessings hope to see you soon.
