Family - The Season's Blessings

Family - you gotta love 'em, right? Don't you? I love my family. They are the best! My brothers and sisters are some of my most favorite people. I hope that is something my girls share one day (they are teens now, so they are NOT there yet).
Christmas is one of the few times in the year that we all make the effort to be together at the same time in the same place. It gets crowded, but we love to be together, so it's not that big of a deal.
This year we hosted both my family and Phil's on Christmas day. My family was here for lunch and his for dinner. There is a lot of trash on my curb tonight for tomorrow's pickup. The kids got TONS of gifts! I even got the sweetest letter from Trent about the Pirate book I gave him. I love buying gifts!
I'm attaching a photo of the Shaver cousins. We try and get this image every year. Unfortunately, my oldest was out of town and wasn't here for the picture this year. But we did get everyone else, including my oldest nephew Eric and his two boys.
Once I'm rested up from these last few days, I'm going to start looking forward to next year. For now, I'm looking forward to BAMA playing in the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!! ROLL TIDE!!

Today is my birthday and I got my wish of being preggers before my birthday hit and it actually happened...I am praying this time I carry to full term. I'm due the end of August.

Welcome Home!

Got back safe and sound from our trip to Georgia and even tho I suspect no one is actually visiting this blog.... I'm tired of looking at my old photos :)

Just to clarify the preceeding rather cluttered post (thanks dear) ...Our wonderful, intelligent, funny, sweet son is in Fort Benning Georgia at this minute finishing up his Army basic training, then on to Airborne, then to Ranger school. While he is officially a 'soldier' (passed the 1st phase) he is not as of yet actually serving. He will not be deployed for many (hopefully MANY MANY) months but we are already praying for his safety (you can too:)

thanks all!

ps. the pics were sent to Sam along with our letters, they are of family and friends.

more and more seniors

I haven't been posting on this blog because I'm starting a new one and have hesitated to post on this blog. But since I'm so swamped, I haven't been able to work on my new blog! So much to do and NO time... I love my seniors! Here are a few of my latest!

What I've Been Doing

It's not a great excuse, but it's all I've got! Been spending most of my days gardening or preserving what we're growing....will try to post a few pics this week.
