    It was a crazy and wonderful Christmas Eve at my middle daughter's home last night. It was so nice to have all three of my daughters and their families together with us, and my sister and her husband plus their son, daughter-in-law and baby Addy who we finally got to meet in person. They stayed long enough to visit and fill some plates to take home with them so they could put Addy to bed. It was good to see my sister. :) IMG_0597.JPG

    The grandkids are all getting so big and enjoying each other so much...I hope this closeness between them remains all of their lives.

    For my Honey and me this is going to be a very special Christmas to remember. :)

    There was so much food that no one will have to cook today for sure. Four different meats, a fried turkey, a baked ham, a smoked brisket, and 2 smoked pork roasts. Sides of rice dressing, salad, vegetable casserole, green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, crawfish corn bread, rolls and so many desserts, dips, and fruit trays. We could have fed a third of our City with all that delicious food.

    The grandkids all loved their gifts this year...it's a really good year when this happens. :) And my daughters suprised my Honey and me with a $75 gift card to Pizza Village which will buy quite alot of pizza and shrimp bread during the New Year.

    Our youngest grandson who is a few months over a year old enjoyed the Christmas tree most of all and kept trying to take all the "balls" off of it. He loves balls...so I think we will have another sports player in a few years.:) Thank goodness my daughter was prepared for this and bought mostly plastic ornaments for the tree...so our grandson could play with those balls all he wanted to.

    Him and his sister who is three kept us very entertained with her singing and both of them dancing all over the house. :) IMG_0616.JPG

    I loved this Christmas Family Gathering. Even my SIL followed us home because it was dark and he wanted to make sure we got home safely. We felt the love this Christmas and the joy of us all being together. Most of all we all went home with memories we will cherish always.

    Can you feel the love...we sure could last night. :)

    Sometimes when it seems the day is going all wrong, somehow it all turns out so right. :)
