..not rain, not sleet, nor snow in the mountains...

..can keep a determined daughter, son-in-law and grand daughter away when they discover they have a 4 day week-end.

And am I glad! This is the first year my daughter has not has her son, Brian (in college in Arizona) for Christmas and this is the first year I haven't had Ella and Brandi with us for Christmas (I'm going to see them in January for Ella's 5th birthday)

So we two mopey-heads-feeling-sorry-for-ourselves mother-daughter team decided to make everyone happy (...uh...as least ourselves..) and for us two-mopey-heads-feeling-sorry-for-ourselves-mother-daughter-team to get together! But, we were'nt really thinking about ................................the weather..

One would think that one would think about the weather, she being from Colorado and me in Utah- where they tout the "greatest snow on earth" I would think...

But we didn't..and they definitely had the luck of the Irish, the company of guardian angels, good karma, the "Force" and a great driver of a son-in-law..'cos they got here safe and sound...

Thank you all the Forces, Karmas, Angels, and Lucky Irish that were with them...



April and Emily...watching the dogs...

Santa must have left just ONE more present for Emily..naw.. just kiddin'..it was from Grandpa and me...
Oh, and Mr. B 2.0 sent these great T-shirts for the pups from San Diego ...Braxton didn't seem to mind too much..

OK, so the pictures are out of sync...Blogger and I don't always see "eye-to-screen" if you know what I mean... So this is Son-in-Law great driver, Chris..

OK, now back to the T-shirts...from San Diego..and Mr. B 2.0 ..

Braxton was like "OK, whatever, just as long as I get to sit on Mommy's lap..."


Lulu, on the other hand, was, well..less tolerant..."I'm so not happy with this ..."


"G.E.T. this O.F.F. me ...N.O.W."


But, oh how could you get angry at that beautiful face?? And, sitting like such a lady...??

Be careful out there and for those who've asked about the backgrounds..if you'll look at the top left on my screen you'll see a link to "Cutest Blog on the Block"..they have many, many FREE!

Have a Fun-day the day before Sunday and we have to go back to work on Monday..

Oh, sometimes I am just too much for me...

So glad you could all be together. It's cold down here in AZ. We even got some snow last night but you had to drive to Cave Creek/Carefree to see it which I didn't do. Christmas is funnest with family.

April, Emily and Chris all look so happy to be there, as I know you and Randy are!! Just great!!

Love the shirts on Braxton and Lulu...Lulu's reaction is identical to our kids' reactions if I put sweaters on them.

I absolutely adore that picture of Lulu with her 'hands' daintily crossed! What a princess!!

Happy that you could be with your daughter and family. That was great. I wish I could be with my kids. Alas no such luck. Makes me sad. Maybe some year our luck will change.
