Happy New Year!

We've never had a Christmas where we haven't all been together at some point during the holiday. This year, my 2nd oldest wasn't going to make it because of work... his older brother got together with him, and they worked it out for a surprise...he flew in to DC (where we spent the holiday this year) to surprise the family on Christmas Day. And what a wonderful surprise it was because nothing makes this mama happier than having all of her children together.

Happy New Year from My Family to Yours!

We've been having a most excellent time visiting and catching up, I'll be sad when it comes to an end. For now though, I'm enjoying it for all it's worth.


Happy 2015 to you!! 
I'm wishing each and every one of you, a marvelous, terrific, wonderful, and prosperous new year!

  10. I'm glad you got everyone together. We had everyone at home, too. Everyone made it to town, but unfortunately our youngest's luggage never made it. Delta lost it, and she hasn't seen it since JFK on Dec. 21. Filling out claim forms are quite difficult, too. Oh, the joys of traveling. Have a great 2015.

    1. He really had on a dress shirt. We'd just gifted him that one (it's a thermal undershirt) and he tried it on. I thought it was funny that it ended up being in the picture too. ;)
