Christmas ~ 2009

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I spent Christmas Eve and morning sick, it was a good time...hahaha....I think I might have eaten something bad or had a stomach bug. Not much fun but I am feeling better today and at least I know I didn't gain any weight over the holidays because I couldn't even keep anything in me for a few days. :-) So here's a few photos of my kids and grands. The grands were the best part of the holiday! Hope everyone had a great one and I for one am thinking positive thoughts for 2010!!

Merry Christmas!!

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. "Do not be afraid!" he said. "I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior-yes the Messiah, the Lord-has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger!"
Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas friends!!

Festival of Lights ~ Cincinnati Zoo

My family and I had a great time at our zoo here in Cincinnati. It is a beautiful display of lights and we had a great time. The grands all "wrote" letters to Santa and Maddie made sure they were put in Santa's special mailbox! :-) I'm in the middle of the first photo, the person who looks like she's frozen! I'm sure everyone is very busy this Christmas week but I hope you all have a wonderful week filled with lots of memories and family!

My Snowmen were happy...........

We had our first snow of the season yesterday. It was only a dusting but you would have thought it was more, the schools were on delays and there were multiple car accidents. My little snowmen loved it!! Hope everyone is staying nice and warm and safe where ever you are. I think I am done Christmas shopping, thank goodness because I hate going to the mall this time of year if I don't have to go. A special thanks to everyone who has emailed me with encouragement at this time of year, the holidays can be tough when you had a bad year and in general sometimes. I think expectations run high for the holidays and it's just not reality for some people. So I'm focusing on the reason for the season and have been telling the Christmas story to my three year old granddaughter Maddie. So MERRY CHRISTMAS blogging friends and I hope it's a special time for you and your family!

Happy Tuesday!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I had lunch today with three of my favorite people in the world, my three grands.........It's not often that the three of them are together so it was a real treat. It's so much fun seeing how much these three love each other. I loved this top photo so much that I made it my new profile photo. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Have a great week!
