True Happiness

This year I almost missed Christmas.
I had the flue and slept though most days my energy was gone and body hurt all over. I canceled Christmas at my house. And asked Amy to do it there. It was a miracle that I was able to go to her house for a few hours of simple fun. This is what Christmas is all about. Not expensive gifts. But fun and family love. A simple jester a home made gift . Kind words and big smiles.

Playing with the kids.

Ok PaPa who should I get MOM, Dad or Grammy?
And don't forget the big kiss.

The other 2 post below include the rest of our day.
This is my last post till New years.
May you all be blessed with happiness, joy and love.

Christmas with the family -- that's what it should be about, not the gifts.

Hope you get to feeling better soon, Grammy!!!! Get some rest and we'll 'chat' with you in 2009.

Great Christmas pictures. You are right--it's all about the simple things and our families which are important.

We're headed to Hendersonville, TN to check on George's elderly parents today. Have a great day.
