Nothin' Could Be Finer Than Christmas In Carolina -

Darryl and I escaped from work on Monday the 23rd and headed to Madison, Alabama to see Shiloh, Jason and the kids and spend the night. They fed us breakfast, sang happy birthday to me in their own special way (thank you Jonas, Adrianna, Preston and Lydia) and gave me some fun (and a little scary) Birthday presents. We left Tuesday morning and headed for Skye and Ryan's in W. Columbia for Christmas. The day after Christmas we drove to Mocksville, NC to be with Darryl's mom and brother. We headed back down to Skye's on Friday and had a wonderful weekend.

A Christmas Poem with Reagan
First we made cookies! Oh what a delight! 

I just had to taste to make sure they were right.

My Grandpa and I are best buddies, you see;

and I took a little time to redecorate the tree.

I watched out the window for Santa and his sleigh,

And arranged all the stockings in just the right way -

Time for Grandma's Birthday and I'm so excited 

I wanted some cake! Yes, that's what I decided!

Grandma, got a poster of all her 'grands',
a flower garden of kids she can hold in her hands.

Grandma and Grandpa can be so fun you see,

They will put on a hat and be silly with me!

 He came! He Came! Jesus came to the earth and when we give gifts we honor his birth.

Santa brought presents and loaded my stocking,..

 The day was quite pleasant...

but some things were shocking!

 A mustache kiss between Mommy and Dad,

a Red-Riding Hood Dolly with a wolf that is Bad.

A kiss for my dolly, a new favorite toy,

and talking and laughing and a feeling of joy!

A quick family picture to remember the day,

Trying on a new outfit while trying to play.

My Hungarian outfit is just a little large, 

but my box full of foam nuts make a perfect play barge.

When night time came it was time to go out

to sing carols to friends and proclaim with a shout-
this was a great Christmas for our family.
May God bless you this year like he has blessed me!
