The Christmas Present That Keeps On Giving..

...was a seven pound, three ounce, twenty inch long, red-headed, blue-eyed bouncing baby boy! I received this present 12 years ago today and it auto-renews every year! Happy Birthday, my sweet Austin! You were always, and still are, such a good boy! Everyone was so proud to have you. Autumn was so excited to have a live baby doll in the house. She was your second "Momma" and loved every minute of it~

Here is my walk through twelve years with my "Little Man"!

With Ganky and Pa on vacation.

Pa's Birthday

Your 8th Birthday.

You and Josh in Gatlinburg. Remember, we got snowed in and had so much fun?

You have always been so good to your sisters! Alex loves to play video games with you!

Of course, you have always loved the beach!

Nine years old.

You were so proud of the trick we played on Dave, the Gator fan! I think he rode around for awhile with the Ga. Bulldog on his truck!

The Varsity should have used this one as a commercial!

You are so talented at all sports. I am so proud of you!

Playing in the camaro.

Of course, here you are with Ganky, who loves you so much!

Happy 12th Birthday, to my "Little Man"! We all love you so very much and are so proud of who you are and what a fine young man you have become!

I am so proud to be your Mom!


Our Marine is home for Christmas!! All is as it should be here!


Merry Christmas to all!!!

The Christmas Picture Bloopers...and some good ones! :)

After I sent a few really good pics to Mom and she said "Wow! Great job! How in the world did you get them to do that?", I thought maybe I should show some of what we go through to get those few really good shots!

Munson walked in and Autumn wanted him in the picture.

Then she called in the "Old Lady".

If dogs could talk, mine would have said "Ok, you look one way and I will look the other."

We tried shots in every position and location we could think of. Someone always did something crazy

Mom: "Austin, open your eyes up a little more".

Mom: "Alex, pick up your chin a bit".

Avery: "Are we almost done??"

Are your Christmas Picture moments like ours? I would love to hear! Thank goodness for digital. There were three times as many taken as what I have shown here!
Merry Christmas!!
