Thanksgiving to Xmas

Here are some pictures to get myself in the Christmas spirit!  For some reason it doesn't seem real to me, but I need to wake up and get a move on things because the crowds are just getting larger everywhere I go.

These pictures were taken at the most beautiful Christmas store in Midland.  I was just in awe ..... and loved finding random nick-nacks ... like this lovely disco ball.

Everything IS bigger in Texas!!!

Who doesn't love life size Santa!!

I thank the Lord everyday for my Granny Gayle ...
a cancer survivor and one of the strongest women I know.

Gotta love my Momma

Gaylen, Arrie, Ginna, Garen, me

And the family pictures begin ...

Cutest Grandparents I know

Sweet family of 21.5, and I love that it keeps growing.

Gare told us to "Do something funny"

You're so sweet! Thank you for all the comments you leave on my blog. I'm just now getting to take a look at yours. It made me want to take a trip to NYC. Been there once this time of year and would love to go back! I loved seeing pictures of your family at the Glasscock's. It's been a few years since I was at their house....oh memories. Tell Garen I said 'hi' next time you see her. :)
