Christmas Family Fun-Numero Uno!!

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?  It came without ribbons.  It came without tags.  It came without packages, boxes or bags.  And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore.  Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.  What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.  What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.  ~Dr. Seuss

What a fun day!!  We had our family Christmas gathering at my mom’s house today.  Matt made it home from Charleston late in the afternoon and Katie, Chad, and Charlie were there.  We laughed, quoted old movies, told totally stupid stories, and had lots of fun.  We got some great presents from my Mom but I think the memory we will carry from today will be that we laughed and had fun.  We ate way too much good food and all sat around at times and stared at the wonder that is our Charlie!!!  What fun.  Family gathering Numero Uno!!!  It’s off to LaGrange tomorrow to have a Christmas gathering (numero dos) with Dan’s dad and some of his siblings!

cimg3123…and did Uncle Matt nail the present this year?  A cool authentic xxsmall Manchester team soccer outfit.  Complete with little Nike soccer socks!!  Matt even gave Charlie a few soccer tips.  The ball is NOT a Manchester team ball so Matt wasn’t too happy about that.  But none of us know the difference.

….so we had to get on to Reverend Cottle for looking at her ta-ta’s!!!….


Find Waldo Charlie.  We almost lost him in the pile of paper and boxes.


All tuckered out after such a fun day!!

The Grinch figured it all out.  The Christmas memories that you make with family and friends are the things you remember.  I honestly don’t even know what I gave or received last year.  I mostly remember the laughter!!!



  1. I can not quit laughing! You are killing me! I love that Katie is the most modest person I know and that you, her mom, is putting unmodest pics up on here for everyone to see! That, I think, has to be the funniest part!

  2. I LOVE your blog!! You’re the best “blogger” I’ve seen! I want to be just like you!!! 🙂

  3. So funny – Katie and her ta ta’s!!!

  4. Looks like you all had a great time! Katie looks great! Charlie looks like a real little Soccer Player in his uniform. Hope to see you over the holidays.
