Good Times


Thanks so much for all the comments on my brother's home. I will take some shots some time later when all the Christmas stuff is put away and share their beautiful home.

This is the metamorphosis of opening that special gift.

First you start tearing the paper.

Then you tear it some more.

Then you get help from mom.

And some help from G Dad.

Then you watch Tickle Me Elmo shake on the table.

Oh, the delight of that precious face! She loves her Tickle Me Elmo!

Making friends

Look at that cute behind!

Sorry about some of the blurred shots. No do overs!
Hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday!
Our son and family go home tomorrow and then the cleaning begins.

Y'all come back now,



  1. The look on her face as she watched Elmo is just precious and I love her bum on the pj's.

  2. Dear me that photo of her on the stairs is just too too cute!

  3. I bet she had a great time this year!! Great pictures!!

  4. Looks like so much fun. Tickle me Elmo is the cutest...Jack loved his.

  5. Oh, the joy of a childhood Christmas! Cute photos each one!

  6. That was so sweet Kim. That smile when she saw Elmo moving. Just priceless and they were all so precious. Christmas is best enjoyed with children. Stay safe and warm in that snow. Take care.

  7. I'm not sure what's cuter, your post or the PJ's.

  8. OMGoodness, Kim that is the cutest metamorphisis I have ever seen:):) Her little bum is so darn cute in those PJ's!!! Thanks so much for sharing this! XO, Pinky

  9. Oh- I love Tickle Me Elmo too. Those shots of her opening that present are just precious. You were lucky to be able to capture that whole scenario on film. and the shots of her with the dog and cat are just so darned cute.

  26. Yay! That's what I wanted to see! Sooooo adorable. You got the whole moment on film! Her pj's were the cutest ever. Looks like Christmas morning was alot of fun at your house. All the kids are so young so you've got many more years of fun to come! Wish I could've been there to join in. Can I clone myself? Ha! Things are finally winding down. I've been catching up on my sleep and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (the Christmas tunnel, that is). How long is everyone staying at your house?

  27. Darling! Those jammies are the cutest EVER!

  28. Looks like some great family time! I know you're enjoying all those grand babies....too sweet :)

  29. Hi Kim...

  31. Darling Kim. They are all so sweet. It's also very funny that your granddaughter and our Zoe look a lot alike. Looks like a perfect Christmas. Happy New Year. Jane
