Here are a couple of Pics from my family Christmas party last night! The first one has my daughters (the two with the longer blonde hair) and three of my nieces showing off their new hats from Grandma.

The second pic is of my sisters, Susan, Kerry, and Jennifer watching my mom look at a new bird identification book. It was really neat because every bird had a number to push on the side and then it plays that bird's song.

The star cupcakes are a tradition in my family. My mom always makes them and lights a candle for all the kids to sing happy birthday to Jesus!

The fourth picture is of my dear parents opening Mizzou University Tiger themed gifts from my daughter, Tara.

The last picture is our poor kitty, Snickers, wondering when the heck all the noisy people were going to go home! My little home was bursting at the seams with family, but it was so much fun and we all had a great time. I am a bit worn out today, to say the least. It is time to get back to "regular life" now.

aww thanks for sharing the pictures your family is so dear and unmistakably happy! Which is always so awesome to see.

Thanks for the engagement congrats. I am very excited to start living out the dream so to speak.

I take the old soul thing as a compliment. When I was yonger around 16/17 I use to hate it when people would mistake me for 30 or 40 (definately on account of some gray hairs and wrinkles). I think I do have an old soul and the older I get I love it. I feel that is prepares me for so much.

I am sure I will talk to you before then but I hope you and your family have the most wonderful new year.
