We were all gathered together on Christmas Eve, sitting in our usual spots at Grandma's condo. The doorbell rang at 10pm. Who could it be? We were all there. Must be someone at the wrong address. One of the boys answered the door, thinking to give directions to a stranger, when in walks our Texas bunch! They had planned this for weeks and kept it so quiet that we were all surprised! It's been many years since they were with us on Christmas so it was one of the best gifts for everyone. Now - if only we could find a spot at Grandma's condo to photograph TEN GROWN cousins! They are getting too big to cram on the stairs!!!!!

No school and both girls working left me with my two pals today and a lot of last minute errands. Traffic was a nightmare, shopper's were frantic, everything was at the other end of town. I needed a Prozac the size of a golf ball. Instead I decided to pull into Lion's Choice, throw open the tailgate (taking advantage of the near 60 degree weather) and give these little guys a hot dog picnic. They had a blast! Nothing soothes the nerves like a weiner and apple juice for them and a couple of smiles and hugs for me. Who cares if we looked like hillbillies?

The annual Christmas Card photo usually sends my family running for cover. This year went pretty well, especially for the squirrels who LOVED the bird seed buffet the kids spilled all over the ground! I'll show you the end result after I get my cards mailed out.
