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!!
