Christmas overview

Christmas with my fam was FAB! We ate, shopped, played, and basically just goofed off. YAY! We also watched this wacky show called Whale Wars. How is airing this show a good idea? Crazy! Anyway, since we were in Mississippi, I made sure we got lots of local flavor: ribs, catfish, shrimp creole, fried pecan pie (yes, Tim, fried). Brian stuck with chicken fingers, though Max tried fried oysters and frog legs.\
Here are some pics from earlier visits.\
My folks and Buddy. Wow, my mom is smiling. It’s a Christmas miracle!\
My dad and the boys:\
Aunt Edna and Brian. As soon as she walked in the door this year, Brian made a beeline for her. No wonder since he’s been talking about visiting with her for the last few weeks.\
Max and Buddy. And, hey! Look at the floors. Aren’t they gorgeous? I am wicked jealous.\
This is one of my favorites of my mom. She is always in the kitchen, cooking for us. Thanks for the great care, Mom!\
It’s only been a day and I already miss my fam like WHOA. They live too far away. Boo.\
Eventually I will post this year’s pictures and write about the death-defying feat of pyromania (aka fireworks that should be illegal) that came over Kevin. Until then, enjoy the older pics.

  1. Dear Jen,
    Thank you for sharing these photos!!! If you have more, please share. Your mom is so beautiful. Her hair is gorgeous and she is smiling away — must have been happy to have her family there! She is just beaming!
    But… please tell her that the price of pork on her sign has been the same since 1988 and I insist she allow for inflation. (teehee)
    you ALMOST got Aunt Edna to look up! haha…. sounds like it was a fabulous Christmas!
    As for the house — why are you renting the one in VA? Is it not a good time to sell there? I know it sucks big time here in Az. but I just thought back there was better? Guess it’s a struggle everywhere.
    The houses you are looking at look wonderful! I am so sick of stucco and would kill for a brick house — siding, ANYTHING other than STUCCO!!!!!!! 🙂 People in other areas of the country are living in mcmansions for the price of a house here (well, except since the drastic fall of value!! ARGH!!!!)
    Love ya,
    Auntie M
