After that we had our Christmas Breakfast tradition, eggs, bacon and hash brown casserole, no pancakes this year, we ate while we watched the Christmas Day Parade and thought of Aunt Stacie working at Disneyworld. We missed you again so much.
What a great Christmas it was again and we all feel So Blessed to receive such amazing gifts, but honestly the Best Gift of all, is Our Saviour Jesus Christ being Born for us.

Oh my goodness, Jamie! What a wonderful Christmas day you had...too bad Stacie couldn't be there but I know her heart was.

You are blessed with such a lovely family, so full of love for each other. It shows, big time!!

LOVED the shot of your grandson in his new truck...too cute for words. I am astounded at how grown-up your Ms. C has gotten. She is a little doll & that expression on her face when she handed the grandpa doll to your DH is PRICELESS! So precious.

Thank you for your sweet welcoming words on my blog. Its nice to be back ...I've missed you too! I'll have to spend an hour going back over all your recent posts.

Happy Healthy New Year, Honey,

p.s. I only WISH that gorgeous home on my blog was is DH's son's...the orthopedic surgeons!
