Back to our regularly scheduled programming!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. My family was very blessed. God is so good! We missed my parents being here but due to all the circumstances, we knew it just wasn’t going to happen this year.
This was a stressful month for us to say the least. Moving pushed a lot of things back, like shopping, decorating and taking our annual family picture. But it gave us enough time to decide that we should start a new tradition, since we are in a new home and all. So instead of our usual spot in front of the Christmas tree, we decided to take them in front of the fire place, because we have one, and we’re pretty excited about that. We usually have this done the weekend after Thanksgiving. Well that didn’t happen this year. In fact we took these on Christmas day somewhere between opening gifts and going over to our best friends house for dinner.
Here’s the one that would have been sent out in Christmas cards had I had the time to address and mail some and had we had time to take these earlier. I know you all understand and love me anyway.
And then there were these.
