Family & Festivities

Hey out there
are you full yet!

I think we started eating last Friday
and have not stopped since

we joke at work saying that we have to dig to the back of the
closet for our buffet pants!

I honestly could not get a good picture of our tree this year
must be getting shaky in my old age
yeah ~ I know ~ excuses excuses

my girls ~ they are growing up so fast

on the 23rd we went to the Christmas concert at my brother's church
put on by the youth group

my Sambo was Mary
and hardly cracked a smile!

this is Ceara and Alayna ~ the other 2 girls in my life now
they are my brother's finance's girls
who are also in youth ~ Ceara made the cutest little angel

Katrina was there too ~ director, producer and wardrobe queen extraordinaire!
and she is here with Mom

Christmas eve I worked but got off early and 
after the candlelight service at church
we all came back here for drinks and finger foods

Christmas day was busy but not hectic
and Boxing Day we were home most of the day
before going to Trev's parents for turkey dinner

we had a great time ~ were spoiled rotten
and I feel blessed to be part of not one but 2 great families.

Right now we are in the midst of a snowstorm
and I will be ok ~ as long as we don't lose power.

Hope your Christmas was merry.

Sounds like you had a several great celebrations! Are the girls in the first picture your daughters? They are beautiful! And so is your tree. It is hard to get a good picture of a tree...they look dull in the day and and too dark at night. Try turning the flash off and use natural light as much as possible. I'm sure you've heard that before!

SO glad you had a Merry Christmas and Boxing Day sounds like fun! I have to get my sweat pants out for the stretch they give! lol!



Sounds perfect, Lori.
