Christmas.....

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your families.  I had a wonderful Christmas.  It reminded me how lucky I am.  I have a warm, giving, and supportive family, and great friends.  My MIL and FIL are sending our family to Mexico later this year!  And she was so clever wrapping the gift in a tortilla warmer! ; )  How lucky are we??!!
Kyle loves his computer and PS3.....typical teen! 
Why yes.....yes he is Superman!  
I love this photo of my MIL and Cortney.  The simple joys of Christmas.  Just get her some pink cookies and she is good as gold! 
My FIL  with his Bah Humbug hat.....  
Even Skippers enjoyed opening his gifts....... 
And Alex too......

It warms my heart when Cortney gets excited to participate.  Especially because the last few  months she had been feeling out of sorts.  It was good to see her happy and comfortable again! 
My cute niece Katie..... 
3 generations.....my sister, Cortney, and my cute mom! 
Our house before company......I wish I could say it were that clean right now...... ; ) 
And there's me......... 
George cracking up at Katie's gift.....a camouflage ice mitt! 
Myla's first Christmas gift.......I think she likes it. 

I spray painted ornaments with black chalkboard paint and wrote each person's name on them.  They made cute place markers! 
I will be back later this week with some crafty stuff.  I still need to get my house back in order and spend some time with my family.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Thanks so much for sharing your family Christmas. My favorite part is that you included YOUR photo as well so that you were in front of the camera, not just taking the photos.
