Christmas Day






Each year we go to my husband’s sister’s house for Christmas.




She has such a lovely home and has it decorated so beautifully!








We have tons of food and all year long everyone waits for the family’s favorite appetizer…Oyster patties!




We also celebrate my husband’s Christmas eve birthday!




While we were preparing to serve dinner, the kids had a blast playing their new Wii game…Just Dance 2.



Girls just love to dance!




Grammy also took some family photo’s.  Kayla and her new doll.




Here is my second son Justin.




Here’s Jason and Justin teasing Jordan.




  What a handsome young man.




Thought I’d jump in for a picture with my guys.




My daughter in love looking spectacular as always with her daughter Karli!




And finally, I got my husband to join in as well!




The kids all got some really neat microphones, and had so much fun entertaining us with them.




We even had a special trio perform some Christmas songs for us!




Looks like Cole may be our next American Idol!





Or maybe it will be Karli?




And a special thank you for the amazing cast!


Hope all of you out there had a wonderful Christmas too!

Very special photos! Of course the one of you taking the picture of the ornament...really laughed at that one! Very unique!
The Lord will always be there to get you through whatever you have to face. Praying!
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

These are so fabulous! You did such a good job of capturing a wonderful time! So many incredible shots! You look beautiful! I love the one of you and Rick. And the ones of the kids dancing are so cute. But my favorite is the one of Karli and her doll. It's perfect! Oh and I love the one of you in the ornament too. Very fun! I didn't get to take one like that this year. Did you use the 24 for any of these?

Awwww - what sweet Christmas fun for all of you - from grandparents on down to the grandkids. It's always such a sweet joy to visit and see your delightful smiles. And what a cool photo at top! I'm going to have to buy a bulb like that, just so I can try that. Tho my easy to use digital camera doesn't have the lens I can see in the pix, - but still, worth a fun try. Thanks for the visit and the fun idea :) Have a blessed and beautiful and fun New Year!

Know that I'm continuing to pray!
Psalms 57:1-2 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

Wanted to share these comforting words with you! Know that I'm always praying!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Lifting up prayers right now!
Matthew 11:28-30: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
