Full Hearts and Full Tummies!

What a wonderful couple of days we've enjoyed in our home! Having loved ones near and so much delicious food made with lots of love were two of the major highlights. We've laughed and loved and of course, we've EATEN!!! As we observed the birth of Christ, we turned our thoughts and prayers to our Lord and the impact HIS birth has had on our lives. What a beautiful season of celebration! My favorite!

Our Christmas Eve started off with Shane, Naomy, and I delivering some goodies to our friends. Here I am with this mother/daughter duo. Two beautiful Christian women who have brightened my life in the few short months I've known them.


THE FOLLOWING PHOTOS SHOW WHY MY HEART IS FULL!




Below is Shane with his new friend, J.T.


Naomy and Joshua
My Parents

Me and my guys!


Later in the evening, Georgiann and Julia joined us.
My boys had time to fit in the annual wrestling match before opening gifts.

Please leave me a caption for this photo of my hubby and nephew!!!


WHY OUR TUMMIES ARE FULL!
A few tamales, a tostada or two, refried beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, and don't EVEN get me started on the desserts!


Maybe you can join us next Christmas Eve for our annual Mexican dinner!

Please remember to submit a caption for the photo of hubby and nephew
drinking from fine china!

More photos to come soon. I can't wait to get around to your blogs and read about your Christmas celebrations!

How about "Real men can lift their pinkies too!".

With all of Christmas hoopla, traveling and guests, I haven't been by in awhile. It's been wonderful catching up with all you've been doing. I loved the post about Shane's birthday. I saw The Bucket List at the theatre but George got the DVD in his stocking and we're watching it again tonight. I'll be doing my bucket list soon.

Merry Christmas sweet friend!

Mr. Pam-"Ok Ok, the French really drink out of these? The men? And they stick out the pinkies?"
Mr. Pams nephew-"Why yes, this is how the French drink!" I feel so dainty"

(No Frenchmen were harmed in the taking of this photo- although I believe that some of Pam's family blushed a bit!!!)

"Christmas and High Tea with the Queen....where IS she anyway?"

I LOVE the idea of the names on the ornaments for the seating arrangements. That is so great! We never do a formal dinner for Christmas but I might have to do that next year. lol

Caption: "Too bad these tea cups don't have apples on them!" (Inside joke. Remember the guy Grandma invited over for Thanksgiving who LOVED the apples in the kitchen??)
