One of WP's Christmas gifts...
wondering if he will love baseball like his daddy.
He's off to a great start.

Like Father (Baba)

Like Son~
 Scott and I enjoyed a mid day date today
with a little Scotty in tow.
We had lunch, went to a movie,
ran a couple of errands
and WP was a perfect angel.
It was wonderful to be out and about.

The One and Only Playroom~

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Is where you will find the littles these days.
Before Christmas there were toys in our sunroom,
the basement, WP's room and the girls' room.
We left the baby dolls and dress up in the girls' room
but everything else came to the sunroom/playroom...
 It was the perfect time to give a few things away that no one
really loved playing with~
 Not to mention Happy Meal toys 
and junk that didn't go with anything~
 Now they know what they have and where it is.
The One and Only Playroom has made
for some really fun playing time over the last days.
I love that they are close by with plenty to do.

Involved a whole bunch of gift opening,
dessert eating, and lots of smiles~

 The beautiful bigs~
 John Daniel~
 WP helping Pop open his gift~
 PaPa enjoying his 95th Christmas~
 A room full of love and joy~
 This photo speaks volumes to my heart...
a daddy's love is the best love and never ends~
 My sweet sister and SJ~
 Jessica and my beautiful momma~
 Sweet Rebecca who loved on all three of my littles~
 we love you too~
Time spent with family is priceless
and we were SO thankful to have everyone together.
We sure missed Jason, Amy, Max, and Adelyn
while they were away celebrating with Amy's family.
Can't believe Christmas has come and gone
and now we wait for the new year.

Blessings and love to you all!

The Best of Christmases~

Monday, December 26, 2011

SO wonderful to celebrate Christmas on Sunday
and give our church family their first glimpse of WP.
The morning began like all our Christmas mornings always have
with the girls and WP waiting on the stairs for everyone to be ready~
The family room before the big gift opening~

 We watched each other open gifts before moving on to next person.
WP loved opening and then helping everyone else~

 The littles loved their Baby Be Blessed animals~
 All dressed and ready for church~
 Once home, Josh and Savannah arrived
and they had gifts for everyone too~
 Their first married Christmas~
 It was SO fun watching them open their gifts~
We enjoyed a delicious lunch with our whole family
and more gifts were given...
Photos to come tomorrow.

Blessings and love this day after Christmas.

Merry Christmas~

Sunday, December 25, 2011

It was the sweetest of days...
sweetest of Christmases...
WP's first forever Christmas home.
I don't want to take away from our family on Christmas night
so I'm just going to post a couple of photos
and a huge thank you.
Awake early and waiting to see what Santa left~
 And ready for church with darling outfits
sent to us by Lori Borah, a precious friend.
No reason other than the love she has for adoption
and wanting to bless our littles so adorably!!!
We love the outfits and we love YOU!!!
WP was just the sweetest baby at church!
Our pastor called the kids down to hear the Christmas story
and WP went with his sisters.
I don't think there was a dry eye in the santuary...
He stood there and listened to every word,
showed Preacher Ben his tie,
and pointed and called to his Baba.
Pure sweetness!
That's all I have tonight~ more later.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas Eve~

Saturday, December 24, 2011

All I wanted for Christmas Eve was to spend the day
with all my children.
So over the river and through the woods~ 
To Josh and Nana's church we went~
 With a great lunch and teeny bit of shopping before~
It was the BEST of Christmas Eves~
Being with ALL our children made my Christmas complete~
 And join me in wishing this newly married couple
a Very Merry First Christmas together!
We wish everyone a very blessed Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas Eve Eve~

Was spent catching up on last minute details
along with some baking for our neighbors~
my sister Marcia, Chris, Rebecca, and Sam arrived!~

They even brought the fixings for a Low Country Boil
all the way from Summerville, SC~
 Everyone ate and ate and ate~
 Doesn't this look delish???~
 Low Country Boil for dinner and Chocolate Chip Pie for dessert.
Umm umm good!
Thanks Sissy and Chris for a GREAT evening
eating, watching movies, and just relaxing!
It's going to be the best Christmas ever!
