Yep... we gotta flash back a minute, peeps, to Christmas again. You KNOW that I can't stop the pics until they've all been shared. And that's just that! So, let me take a moment to humiliate my first nephew, Hunter. Apparently the poor boy was sleepy!
Of course, only my taking a photo with him wasn't enough to really commemorate the moment, so I called everyone else over, one by one!
I rallied the littles to come over and take a little pic with Hunter too!!
Once again, mom said, It's gonna be a light CHristmas this year, girls". She kills me!!
And in her heart of hearts, she really meant that. Bless her heart. She doesn't even know what "light" means. She lives in excess when it comes to giving. That's awesome though... a spirit of abundance. A heart that wants to give. And maybe that's where I get my more is more mentality.
And of course, she feels that NO helper elves could possible do a good job without monogrammed aprons.
and they were really FEELIN' them!
In case we didn't get plenty of gifts under the tree, she went into overdrive with the stockings.
ANd then the craziness began!!
For those of you who have been watching my blog for years, might be as shocked as I am when I see these two young men who were only 8 and 10 when they were first "introduced" to the blog world though Caringbridge, the year their little brother, Jake, was diagnosed with cancer. And now.... grown!
and I'll tell you I love them just as much today as I did then. They just don't really love ON me as much as they did then! Boo hoo. When I get the chance to snap a pic with them, I take it!!
And then, we had the dance off...
and the present ravaging continued. JinJin must have been feeling the love too.
We have a new member of the family now... Miss Sydney, Hayden's baby girl.
And I can tell you that there are three little girls in the world who are VERY happy to have her join the fam!!
Only a few more Christmas pics and we can tuck 2013 away. Until then...
