Merry Christmas! **better late than never

It seems a little anticlimactic to be posting Christmas pics at this point. But since several of you asked and since I can't stand not to post a good pic (or 12), here you go!

Christmas Eve...

Macy and Lucy waiting to dig into their stockings at Ninny's house!


My big boys

Out of 15 grandchildren...only 3 are girls. Aren't they darling? One of them looks ever so slightly different from the other two. But not much.



Christmas Morning...

Those snuggies on TV look so innocent but how scary is this?!!

Nick and his new sock monkey (that HE asked for). My young men still have some little boy left in them. LOVE IT!!

Is there anything better than a little one sitting on your lap on Christmas morning? I dare so NO!


Carefully examining some gifts...

Sweet Macy waiting to open her next present. **Could I not have had her sit in a more picturesque and festive place?

Ok, seriously. I'm ready for a major present.

What? For me? A brand new stereo for my car? Life is good.

Yep, now that's what I call a great present!

Lucy and my great-nephew...I don't just mean he's great (he really is) but...yes he is my GREAT-nephew. Yes, I'm that old.


A well-rounded girly-girl sporting her new ride...and tutu...and glittery shoes.


I absolutely love Christmas and I'm quite sure that I get even more excited about it all than the kids. I am so very thankful for all the wonderful gifts that were given and received, symbolizing the generosity of our Savior.

God is amazingly good...I just can't get over that.

And I hope I never do.

Merry Christmas - and it IS Three King's Day today, so you're really not all that late.
Looks like you had a really nice Christmas.
I do dare say my hubby and I love Christmas even more than the kids - but I think it is because we really GET the gift we received that first Christmas. We know how much we needed it much more than even my big kids do yet. So we love to celebrate it in a BIG way!!!!

Merry Christmas a bit late. Love the pics. Admit it...you got up and showered, and put on cute jammies before coming down for Christmas presents and pictures, right? No one looks that good just out of bed:-) Thanks for sharing the pics.
