Don't you just love the feeling of home at the holidays? This picture is definately not the best, but to me the warmth of it reminds me of family!
Collin and Sam got to unexpectedly attend so it was great that they could join in the festivities. Sam got to go on a long walk in the mud and cold....I am sure she loved it! Well she didn't walk the whole way, her knight in shining armour carried her part of the time!
This is a picture of me with my parents and brother....
Check out the shirts the kids are wearing below...My sister in law Jamie did a freezer paper stencil and painted them! I loved them, and I was so touched that she did one for Ally...What a GREAT surprise! I had so wanted to try the freezer paper stenciling, but I just didn't have the time so I was so happy!
And here I am with my grandma..LOVE HER!!! Although I think she is shrinking!
So that kicked off our Christmas celebrations, and we had a great time hanging with the family! Lots of laughs, and you can't ask for more than that!
