First Christmas

Not THE first Christmas but my first Christmas
I had a crazy busy day yesterday and didn't have much time to throw together a post for today. So you get a really old picture of me and my cousin Rich. The date on the side of the picture is March 63 which I'm assuming is when the film was developed. Since I was born in March of 62 I was about 9 months old here.

All I have to do is make it through these next couple of days and the weekend should be a pretty calm one for me. Our Christmas will be a low key, hang out at home and relax kind of holiday. We'll be taking a short trip (hour and a half drive) to see Wade's dad on Saturday morning and then it's back home and chillin out time.

Sweet photo of little ones dressed in their Christmas outfits! Maybe you were wishing for a little white dog :) Love the Nativity under the tree and the spinning top on the table.

Merry Christmas to you, dear blogging Friend!

Awwww--look at you!! Whatcha lookin' at??

Isn't it CRAZY this week??? I'm scrambling for posts and blog visits because I'm crazy busy at work too. Yikes. You'd think they would shut down the place for a week so we could all just relax. Sheesh.

I would really like to smart-off something here, but your pose in that picture is too adorable.
