Four Christmases

1. Christmas Day, at my sister’s

Christmas is not complete without a sword fight
Or several…

If you read it, they will come…

Aviana 5, Cadrian 17 months, Cora 6, Titus 3, Brielle 3, Ella 4, Eli 14 months

And then the fun for me pretty much came to a skidding halt…

2. Christmas night, home
I’m not above giving my children used Christmas gifts…I got this fabulous train for $15
And this wonderfully twirly dress for $5

My husband, on the other hand, got me a new lens, so I could take pictures
like this
from all the way across the room

3. Day after Christmas, our house

My brother, who drove up from St. Louis just to be here for 36 hours

Magnetic paper dolls
Laughter: by my cousin Amelia, my nieces and daughters

It’s hard enough to take a picture of seven small children without technical difficulty too! Perhaps it would help if I knew what I was doing.

4. Today, Grandma Joyce’s
When do we eat?
Cadrian cracks up Grandma with his cute lil self

A little cooperation would go a long way…

Not bad for a self timer picture

Me and my beautiful SIL Connie

One thought on “Four Christmases

  1. Hi,
    I have been following your blog for almost 2 years and I love every new thing you write! I love checking in to see what things the kids have said or done lately and how you are your husband are doing with the weather and life. This blog is such a breath of fresh air and I love how you are SO HONEST on it with how you are feeling and what you are thinking! Love it! I think it shows me as Pharr, Tx on the right hand side whenever I come to your page. It used to be Anoka, MN but my husband got laid off so we're in Pharr, TX right now. Anyway, have a great new year!
