Christmas Wishes

We had a lovely Christmas with our family this year. It was a busy, fun-filled day. The house was packed with family members. Jim arrived Christmas eve morning so all of our children were here. Mom and Dad came as well as both of my sisters. There was food and fun, lots of laughter, plenty of presents, and way too many goodies. I was especially blessed to have our two little grandson with us this year.

Now that the celebration had come and gone, the pressure is off and I can relax again. The headache I had on Christmas eve is just a memory. Hopefully someday I will learn not to get so stressed in those few days ahead of time... Well, it could happen... maybe.


  1. Wishes do come true! They all look so great! Jim looks happy, a little older but healthy and happy! The header is perfect, even Ellie. Wonderful you folks and sisters came. thanks for taking the time to blog this. Is Jim staying at home with your for his visit or...? Glad your headache is gone. Mine is too, I will get the grands for two days next week.... Pictures will occur :D

  2. Gmj- That's Dave in the picture with his new little baby.
    It was a fun filled day. I just love it when everyone is together! Everything is always wonderful, Martha, no need to stress. I stress too though when things are at my house. Let me know next time if there is anything else I can do to make it less stressful for you.

  3. OOPs My bad. Well Dave is quite a looker anyway. Jim you are a star!

  4. So glad you had such a wonderful Christmas with your family. The grandbabies are are adorable. I got to love on our little ones too.

    Great pictures.... Yes, now we can relax a little!!!

  5. Great picture. Merry christmas! Have a great new year for you and your family!

  6. How nice, that you had all your children home! Isn't that the best gift ever? Even though it is a lot of work... to bring all the goodies on the table! But I am sure they helped, too!
    You have a great family.
