X-Mas 2005

This year we somehow managed not to travel anywhere. Instead, we convinced Mike's grandmother, Mammaw, to take a trip out to visit us. It was so nice to avoid the hassle of traveling and the holiday was made extra special by our visitor.

On Christmas Eve, we got the bright idea to go to mass. Normally, that would be a perfectly acceptable activity, but we blew it and brought the kid along. At the church, Sarah found our next door neighbors and proceeded to run like a lunatic up and down the aisles hoping to have them chase her. Her behavior was far from pious. I seriously doubt that we'll be allowed in that church again.

Here's the kid before we headed out to church. Doesn't she look angelic? Well, don't be fooled my friends. Don't be fooled...

The following morning, we found that some fat man in a red suit had left all sorts of stuff under our tree.

A table and chairs sized just right for a pip-squeak:

A pink purse that has not left Sarah's side since that morning:

An Elmo doll! "Elmo! Elmo! Elmo!" - that was pretty much Sarah's reaction when she saw him:

A John Deere t-shirt (I'm told every southern lady has one) and a Little People zoo:

A microphone to get down with:

And so many other fun games and books, I could post photos all day. Since, I'm tired and need some coffee. I'll let your imagination fill in the blanks. Don't forget to imagine some happy adults, too much food and a lot of rain. It was a good Christmas!

C, S, & J - It sounds like James is ALL boy. Sarah likes to climb, but she insists on having a purse with her.

REJ - It was a good time. Sarah had fun with her Mammaw.
