White Christmas Miracles &

Shameless Proud Nana (Mama) Moments!

A Very Fun Christmas!


Little Richard is almost 3, so this was his biggest Christmas yet!


Richard with his Kitty Keyboard



He didn't want to see Santa, but he was a big helper with gifts anyway!



Molly and Richard



The boy has Toy Story fever and everything is "Buzz & Woody"


These guys were just part of the booty.....



Toy Story Aliens



He got a Buzz Lightyear snuggie that his mom is modeling....

(my daughter, Michelle)






Toy Story blankets, Legos (Duplos), Jessie the Cowgirl, CARS & Lincoln Logs......we all enjoyed playing with his stuff!



He got a pillow pet that made friends with his Uncle Dan..

(thats my baby boy)






Molly got a cute hat......






....and clothes, jewelry and makeup and more fun stuff!






Alabama (well, at least Birmingham) had it's first White Christmas!  My kids had accumulation at their homes in Trussville......I didn't get all that, but big, fat, fluffy snowflakes at my parent's house were a treat when we were all together Saturday that I never thought I'd see in Alabama!  Amazing!!!!!  It was a bit of a miracle Christmas in many ways.....


Most of all my Dad coming home after 7 months in the hospital!

Hi Ann~  The best part is that your dad came home!  I have a grand son about the same age and he is so into tractors, four wheelers and Toy Story!

It sounds like all had a very merry Christmas especially the adults watching the baby.  It is good to hear that your dad was home for Christmas too.

Happy New Year ma'am.

Hello Ann and almost...Happy New Year.  Sorry to hear that you didn't get more of the white stuff...I think Huntsville stole it from you.  News reports say this was the first white Christmas here in over 21 years.  Happy for you that your dad was home for the holidays.  Talk to you soon.
