Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Behind the Scenes!

Okay, while Paul and I were getting Claire ready to go see what Santa Dad and sister were apparently keeping my other children at bay! The kids had gotten up and come to the next room where Paul and I sleep but my parents and sister were already up at the other end of the house....where the tree is....where the stocking were hung (on the china cabinet with care)......and the kids are not allowed down there until I get up....and they KNOW IT! They woke us up but we had to get Claire up and ready before they could go see anything and they were not being especially patient about it! I did not know what was going on behind the scenes until I saw the pictures my mother took on Christmas Day!

Here they are-READY TO GO!

And here my Daddy and Amy are having to hold them back....after teasing them relentlessly about what they could see and my kids could not!

Amy resorted to the use of household tools to threaten them!

As you can see my Dad is having a great time cutting up with them! :)

Now, Claire is ready and they are just waiting for the word from me that they can take off!

We also had Christmas with Lizzie yesterday when Paul drove to Lexington to pick her up and bring her to my parent's house....unfortunately, she will not let me post any of the pictures of her from when she opened her gifts because she had decided not to put on make-up yesterday! I said she should have known better...but she begged and I'm a sucker for her puppy dog eyes....hence the reason she's getting a kitten for Christmas! Good Grief!

Too funny! We torture our kids every year, making them wait in the hall while the Hubby gets the video camera all set, we brush our teeth, etc. It's wonderful that you get to spend Christmas with your mom & dad and share it all with them.

Totally upset that I missed it. I hate missing things. Looks like you all had a good time though so I'm happy. :)
Love ya!
