Yankee Christmas 2014 and a New Family Member

We had our annual family Christmas on my mother's side dubbed "Yankee Christmas" this past weekend. Santa makes a visit with a sack full of toys for all the wonderful little girls and boys.I have 3 uncles and 2 aunts, meaning my grandparents had a natural Brady Bunch, equaling a VERY LARGE extended family to date. This gathering includes 4 generations and a traditional reading of "What Christmas Means To Me". This is a short or however long you'd like writing by the family member who's next on the generation timeline. Many have the tissues handy cause it's usually heartfelt and a tear jerker! Last Sunday completed the 3rd generation of readings and hopefully next year the 1st of the 4th generation (my 2nd cousin Logan) will continue the tradition.

see the binoculars :)

Santa's arrival

Santa asking Asa if he's been a good boy...

He said "Yes"

Gracyn was last to be called by Santa and he was so desperate to tell him he "sawd" reindeer tracks out the window! AND he "sawd" him at Home Depot too! :) :)

We also have a new family member - his name is Ranger and he is 9 weeks old. He is a Cane Corso "aka" Italian Mastiff.
