Merry Christmas----Part 1

I know that it has been a very long time since my last post. In fact, I completely missed the Thanksgiving holidays--Shame on me! In my defense, things really get busy around that time, not only preparing for the Thanksgiving day itself, but already thinking and working on all the activities for the month of December. So, at this point I can only ask for forgiveness and hope that my posts for Christmas and the New Year will make up for it.

We started our Christmas celebration a little early this year. Klee, JD and LilE all came in the week before Christmas and we took the opportunity to meet with all Smitty's siblings and get together with his Aunt Pearl who will be 98 in February. We have been with Pearl on Christmas all our married life (and even a few years before). But, with all of the changes in our lives recently, traditions have to change as well. We had a great visit with her that day.

Christmas has always been one of my most favorite times of the year for many reasons. It is so fun to experience it through the eyes of children. LilE was simply delightful this year. We had such a wonderful time. The following pics are just a few from Christmas with my side of the family. Keep checking for additional post and Christmas Part 2 with additional pictures from Christmas morning and Smitty's family.

Christmas Eve tradition is to open presents with Christmas PJs. I guess you never get too big to have your picture made in your new PJs.

Sassy (Mimi) and LilE Christmas morning!

Good pictures! Christmas with family is always good. I enjoyed our get-togethers for Christmas.
