Merry Christmas

Excited to be opening a gift on Christmas Eve.... Looking at Chandler because they have opened theirs and Chandler says his is a toy....

All Three in their new jammies.... Ready for bed....

Good Morning and Merry Christmas to all......

Here are a few pictures from last night. One of the gifts the kids get every year are new pajamas from Nana and Pop-Pop. This was a tradition as I was growing up as well. We opened them on Christmas Eve and I have kept this tradition going on with our boys. Then we go out and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus on the front porch. Not sure why I chose the front porch but we have done it since Chandler was little so we continue every year.

So our 16 year old is the one who went to bed last and woke up first. What's that all about? Of course now he sleeps..... ah the life of a teen! We have had a wonderful week around here with last minute shopping and celebrating Christmas with the in-loves. Our niece and nephew are also in town with baby Molly.. so precious!
I pray each of you have a wonderful day spent with your loved ones and the One who loves you!

Hello.....Let me re-introduce myself....

Couldn't think of a more appropriate title considering I have been away so long. I have missed blogging terribly but the time has just not been there. I haven't worked full time outside the home since 1994 so beginning a teaching career so late in my life has been quite an undertaking. I love the job but have had an incredibly difficult time balancing home and school.

I have only been off school for 2 days now and I have really enjoyed it and am looking forward to getting caught up here and with all the paper work that I brought home from school. Of course it is 5:30am and I don't have to be awake but I guess I am programmed so it will take a bit to sleep in. Looking forward to that..

We took Christmas card pictures yesterday. You should have seen us. I made my oldest son grab a chair and we all went looking for a good railroad track location or older looking building and this is what we came up with. I am loving it. A little different but love the faces on my boys.

Looking forward to getting caught up on some blog visiting and posting. :)

Have a wonderful day!
