A Holly Jolly Christmas...


It was a busy, jam-packed, fun-filled Christmas once we got past the stomach bug!  Our traditional Porch Picture was changed up a bit due to cold raindrops which turned to giant, gorgeous snowflakes on Christmas Day!  Oh, what fun we had!


Candy Making was fast and furious so we could all pile in the bed of Pop Pop's pickup for a ride through Santa Land...


But, here's how candy making is best enjoyed!!  Our official Tasters.  ;)


This crew has probably crossed two state lines by now on their journey home... I send them God's speed and safety... My best gift was time with all my loves.  I deeply appreciate the time carved into all our family's schedules for us.  There is truly nothing like spending time with those you love.

Hoping each of you enjoyed the Holy sweetness of this special time of year...

Blessings ~ tanna

Yes, time with family is what it is all about....and yours is growing! Just more fun times to come.

I hope they all have a safe journey home! Quiet and sad around the house now, uh?

If I would just get up from the computer I might get some decorations packed away, ha!

Awww.....these pics are all so good! Glad that you're all better now and were able to enjoy the holidays together. Seems that bug has been making its rounds. I've read alot of blogs that have experienced that themselves.

Tanna, I can tell y'all had a grand time together just the way it is supposed to be. How fun getting snow for Christmas. We did last year and this year we had heavy fog.

Chatty Crone said...

What great photos/collages you have made. I love seeing you happy family and your wonderful Christmas. I felt so bad when you all got the flu - it was a rough one - we had it here too!

I know y'all had a great Christmas.

What a grand time you must all have had! Your little fellows are adorable and those pictures are sure to send me directly to my photo files to look at my little guys again. What a sweet age!
Now you can put your feet up and enjoy the memories of a wonderful Christmas.

Oh my the joy just jumps out of those photos! What a wonderful time it looks like! And I see a baby girl with some amazing hats on! :-) Now for the clean up but most of all the memories, right? They are all precious and how your little men are growing so fast! Handsome boys,

So happy for you and your family being together and having such a good time. The little ones really make this time of year so special. And snow! Wonderful!

Shug said...

looks like a special time was had by all....You certainly do have a beautiful family! Just can't beat family time, especially with those precious grandbabies. I think y'all got more snow than us! I saw some pictures of the Tyler area and it looked like a double amount from what Chandler got...
Blessings to you and I do pray for your kids to have a safe journey home.

It all looks warm and wonderful to me. I'm so glad your HOLYday was a time of sweetness.

I loved how you phrased that, and I think you hit the nail on the end. It's the holiness is what makes it sweet.

Happy New Year to one of the cutest little families in blog land. (And yes... I mean that. )

I just now slowed down long enough to really look at the pics you put in your collages and was tickled that we chose so many of the same ones as our "favorites." =) It was such a Merry Christmas! Love you so big! xoxo
