Christmas with the BEST family.....EVER

Hello to all...

I THINK this is the last of our 2014 Christmas..

Christmas Eve and Christmas morning were spent with our family.

Christmas Eve is dinner at our house, 
with gifts, games and stockings.

 A Brown Sugar Glazed Ham ..
Baked Potato Bar
Garden Green Salad
Desserts out the kazoo....
*Best of all...
all the family together.

 Here's Jent, son in law
Brooks playing with his dog, WILSON..
that's Mr. Sweet and Deeds on the sofa...
(too much light coming in for a good photo)

Early Christmas morning at our girl, STACY LEIGH'S house..
I didn't get many photos here...
most of them didn't turn out...not sure why....

Christmas morning at son, DAVID KEITH'S house.
hahhaa...David, in the middle, on his way to an UGLY SWEATER CONTEST...

I must share a really sweet email from a new friend ...

"I am unable to use your comment area because
Love your Mack Child.  You were a good girl but we know this everyday you post!
David may have an ugly sweater, but what a sense of humor.  Love him!
Continue you doing what you do for us every day!!!"
Thanks so much for this sure started my day off on a high note. :)

  5. So nice when families share time and love together. So many not that fortunate. You are blessed. You did good on your grouping of the photos. Have not learned that yet. Also, Suzanne has a post of up today and said she was back. Will see.

  6. Happy New Year to you and all of your family!!

  7. You did a fine job with family photos! I took none and am so sad about it. No one wanted photos taken this year. It will be like the year that never was! I especially like the one you have of everyone all together. So lovely! It won't bother me a bit if you have another Christmas post up your sleeve. = D

  8. Love the happy pics, bj! And isn't today your birthday, ma'am?

    If I am late and it was yesterday I apologize, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY, regardless - have a happy year with good health and lots of smiles. And chocolate, gotta have chocolate. : - )

  9. Love the happy photos. Such a beautiful family bj.
    All the best in 2015. Happy New Year!

    Cherish these years.
    Christmas Blessings to all.

  13. bj, looks like you have an awesome family. I know your proud, you should be!
    I'm curious...the shirt the little one is wearing does it say, `What Santa didn't bring, Grandma will" ;)

  22. Hi BJ, Happy New Year to you and your family. Your Christmas photos are great.


  23. You do have a beautiful family. I'm so glad you got to enjoy spending time with them on Christmas Eve and on Christmas. Nothing makes Christmas merrier than getting to be with those you love. :-)

  24. You have a lovely family and you were lucky to be able to be with them on Christmas eve and Christmas day. I am wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  25. Great times with your family. I enjoyed mine as well, but it seems it went by so fast. Most have returned to Illinois or are on their way, so things are back to normal.

  26. Hello, BJ! I love your fun family photos…YUMMY menu! So happy you had a wonderful Christmas with your sweet family.

    Happy 2015!

  27. So glad you had a great time, BJ! This is just wonderful! Loved all the pics, but particularly the group shot!!! :-)

  28. Lovely lady with lovely family. Lots of greetings - Happy New Year and Happy Birthday. See you at Pink Saturday.

  29. You have such a beautiful family, dear BJ. Thank you for sharing your memories with us :) Hugs to you!

  30. That big happy family of yours is sure a blessing! We have one too, and sometimes I forget that not everyone has their family close by to enjoy for holidays. It's a sobering thought, and makes me appreciate mine all the more. I'm so glad you have that too!


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.
