Some post-Christmas cheer to share...

I thought I would post some pictures from Christmas to share with you. Hope you all are still recovering and gearing up for a Happy New Year.

Reed and her new shirt, beanie, and plaid scarf.

Allie was taking a break from opening presents. She is sitting on a beanbag chair one of my nephews got at Na-Na's house.

Reed was absolutely over the moon to get her blue DS!! She hasn't stopped playing it.

Allie and her tri-bot. She started asking for this thing back in July.

I celebrate my 13th anniversary tomorrow with Billy. We were kids, basically, when we got married. We were almost 23 and had never lived away from home. I had graduated from college in May and Billy had graduated 2 weeks before the wedding. Looking back on it, as a parent, I am shocked that no one tried to talk some sense into us. We had the world by the tail. We soon had reality slap us in the face. But, that's another post for another day. We've had some major things happen (the post I mentioned), and some miracles (our girls) have occurred. We have been blessed by family, friends, and good memories. Then, Billy has a birthday on Jan. 1. I have one on Jan. 11, Allie on Jan. 14, and Reed on Jan. 25. Yeah, we really know how to plan. : )

If you click on it, you can really see how young we looked!! Especially Billy.

On a side note, why can't I get my scans to be normal size anymore? I need a tutorial!!

Have a great day!!

You scan is not cropped to fit the photo. You need to play around with the scanner some. I wish I had mine hooked up so I could talk you thru it.

My mom's birthday is the 11th also. so be sure to pop by my blog on the 10th and remind me to blog about my mother ;)

Happy Anniversary! I was married for 13 years also..............

to my first husband!! lol I was 21 when we got married and had Mercede on my 22nd birthday and then Cheyenne less than two years later as she was born when I was still 23.

Almost all of my families falls right around September except Aysha, whom is a June bug.

Have a great day tomorrow and a wonderful blessed New Year!

OMG! I can't believe how beautiful your wedding picture was! Now I'm not saying that things have changed, you just always seems so casual about those "Love" memories. See ya' Monday, friend.

There, I think that covers it.

What a beautiful bride you were! You were wise to have a Christmas wedding--look at that church all beautifully decorated and majestic-looking.

OK, we must chat soon...and get a salted caramel hot chocolate from Starbucks, too. :)
