Here We Go 'A Caroling

One holiday tradition our family has is to sing Christmas carols around the piano on Christmas Day. Of course, the neighbors think the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is making house visits, but, no, it's just us. Mamaw plays her violin that she got for Christmas several years ago. After 50 or 60 years without having practiced before picking it back up, I'd say she's better than most. She played a lot when she was young, but after her violin burnt when their house burnt down, she never got a new one. We're all glad she picked it up again decades later!!

Christmas? When did that happen?

For your viewing pleasure, here is a big ol' batch of Christmas pictures that we never posted, not for lack of pictures, but for lack of ambition. I know, it's been almost a month and we've moved on past the holiday season. But you're getting them anyways.

Sulu moped a little bit when Santa asked her to help him guide his sleigh, but eventually she got up off the couch and helped him out. Sulu says "Merry Christmas!"
Becca had lots of fun playing with her new toys. Her cousins did, too. Becca's new Bratz laptop computer revealed that Becca is already better than her cousins at math. If only we had had a Bratz laptop growing up...

Leah and Laura teamed up with Uncle Dean to eat all the Christmas food Mamaw put on the table.

Like mother, like daughter.....Emma Mae and Carla make a deadly duo in the kitchen.

Devin and I both got new digital cameras for Christmas and proceeded to take pictures of each other for two hours straight.

For being the best grandmother ever, we got Mamaw this rocking chair reindeer who sings "Grandma got run over by a Reindeer".
