Oh, that sounds wonderful!!! And you have redheads! Yay!

My daughter and I went to Epcot for the Candlelight Procession. That was wonderful!

Ella is coming New Year's Day...just three days away...then we'll be going back to Disney to the Magic Kingdom. I can hardly wait to see her over there...I can just plain hardly wait to see her.

Before they come, though, I have ten people coming for lunch tomorrow, so I guess I better get with it.


It all sounds so delightful. Little ones sure do make Christmas, especially when they are your grand kids. Love the photo of you and Bastian, guess that was the only photo of you.
Sure has been fun watching them grow up.

Happy New Year to you, may it be a healthy and happy one for you and your family!

What a lovely time you had & Bella & Bastian are absolutely precious!!!! You are blessed!


From the photos I can tell you had a marvelous Christmas.
I was thinking about getting a Wii Fit for myself as a New Year's gift to me.

Happy New Year to you Joy.

One of my granddaughters is a redhead tho not a real carrot top like your two! Lovely pix.
With our bunch gone, it seems quieter around here, too. I did a major cleanup and am having friends over to help me make the transition.


What beautiful grandchildren you have and what a very special Christmas. It reminds me of Christmas's past and I feel a big dose of nostalgia when I read about yours. Mine was quiet with just my son, but he did bake a ham.


What beautiful photos of you and your grandkids. Gave me a smile today to see them :) They are beautiful

Happy,happy times, dear Joy! Thanks for sharing!

Those kids get cuter and cuter!!

Happy New Year!!




How fun to read about the Christmas visit from your kids and grandkids. I imagine the house DOES sound quiet with them all gone, but you clearly have wonderful warm memories of your time together. Thanks for sharing them and the photos you do have with us. Happy New Year to YOU too!
Hugs and blessings,

Happy New Year, my dear, dear friend!!!



Your Christmas was delightful and those precious grandchildren are so beautiful.
Mine are older but still fun.The ones here in Atlanta live just 10 minutes away from us and our daughter and SIL came with their 2, Sam 12 and Susanna 10.
Our son came with our DIL and their two ages 10 and 8.
We all just did children's gifts this year. The youngsters loved their gifts and then we had a delicious Christmas brunch.
We are so fortunate to have had these 4 grands so close. We have been here to keep the when needed and love them to pieces.But they are growing up too fast.

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year, Joy!

Christmas is so much more fun with little ones around (including the noise, lol). Your two g-kids have certainly grown this past year...what cuties they are!


Happy New Year Joy, let's hope and pray for a good one.


Happy New Year, Joy! How odd the silence must be after a week of family filling up every nook and cranny. I could almost feel it, as you described it. I'm glad the kids made it home safely.

I love the pictures, and will look forward to seeing more as soon as the kids forward them to you. It sounds like you had a spectacular Christmas. May the time pass quickly until you are will them all again!

All the best to you in 2009!


*Sigh*....yes, IS good. Our children and grandchildren make it that way. So many wonderful memories. May 2009 bring you many blessings....some requested and at least ONE unexpected. Big hugs and love to you.


Hi Joy!'ve still got our voices! Wishing...good surprises for 2009! Take care and LOL.


Hi,'s me...your long-lost blog-friend...who's vowing to do better in '09. ;) Sounds like you had a great time with the family. We spent part of our holiday in Portland and had a lovely time up there. Thank you for always hanging in there with me...even when I end up neglecting my blogging for awhile. Looking forward to reconnecting on a more regular basis this year. xo


I'm sorry to be getting here so late for this post!! Happy New Year, and I'm sorry about the colds they gave you.

Peace and quiet after the family leaves is wonderful, isn't it - until you start missing them.


It sounds like you had a really great time!

And you've reminded me about the jigsaw I planned to start but didn't ...

Hope 2009 is extra-specially brilliant for you.
