An Award and Christmas Past and Present

you are fabulous My sweet buddy Kat from Justabeachkat has passed this wonderful award on to me. Isn't it just the cutest award? Thanks Kat! Sorry I am late in posting about it but this time of year seems to have a life of it's own when it comes to time. Where did this week go? Wasn't it just Monday? Anyway, I am always so happy when my blogging buddies think of me.
Here are the rules: Copy and paste the rules and instructions in your post. When posting on receiving the award, make sure you include who gave you the award and link it back to them. Post five winners and link it back to them as well. Post five of your addictions. Add the award image. Let your winners know you gave them an award by leaving them a comment on their blog.

1)Coffee, first thing in the morning.

2)Chocolate, love dark chocolate and semi sweet chocolate.

3)I have to say internet and blog reading. LOL I always find a way to stop working so I can see what everyone is up too.

4)Can grandbabies be an addiction? LOL Because I just am addicted to seeing their little faces.

5) When Lost comes back on, I will be addicted to the TV and watching it, that and 24. My two favorite shows.

So I am passing this award on to five people:

3)Brit from Lille Meg

4)Kylie from A Bite of Country Cupcakes

5)Jenn from The Beaufort Lookout

Your blogs are fabulous! Thanks again Kat!

So I told you how I've been going through boxes of photos this week. Actually I am going from one project to the other like a crazy person. I do some photos, then I make some jewelry, then I address some Christmas cards and then I do my travel work also. Crazy, I wish I had a huge bathtub to soak in and just relax. But anyway back to the photos. Look at the cute photos I found. This first photo is of our firstborn Melissa(AKA as Sas and Buttons Mom). This was Melissa's very first Christmas some 30 years ago. What really gets me about this photo and no it's not that lovely shag carpet in our old home or that beautiful state of the art TV that had three or four channels. LOL No it's that she looks so much like her two little girls it's almost scary. If you don't believe me, go here and see the girls and then come back here and tell me you agree with me. LOL I like it when people agree with me. :-)
do you like my camel Here's one more photo that I found while going through them all. This one is of all three of our kids. I have no idea when this was because I didn't mark the date on it, but I thought it was a cute one. And now are you ready for some of the cutest photos ever??? LOL Keep going........
my mom gave us all bowl haircutsHere's little Cameron in his first visit with Santa. We took all of the grandkids to see Santa and Cameron was the only one who thought he was great. Maddie likes him but only if he is far away and not talking to her. LOL And I think Sas was sound asleep so we had these photos taken of Cameron and Santa. I think they about the cutest photos ever. LOL

who are you looking at big guy
Okay, I guess I need to get back to work but I am beat tonight so maybe I'll put it off till tomorrow and just blog surf for the rest of the evening. See how easy I can talk myself out of working. LOL I think I just set a record for writing LOL in a post. Okay I am done now, LOL, LOL LOL. Have a good evening!

one of the cutest photos ever

Oh, the pictues are so precious. That little Cameron is a cutie pie. I have to say, that Santa looks verrry familiar - I wonder if he travels the Ohio-Florida route!!
