Christmas Day was spent in Camilla at my Grandparents house. I always enjoy riding over there with the Valdosta cousins. This was right before me and Sam and Christy took a nap on the couch! Thankfully Aunt Susie has that pic on her camera and it won't be posted on my blog! hehe
Uncle Jim wouldnt let me take his picture so I am getting even with him by posting this pic of him eating.

Some of the family eating

Me and Aunt Ann. She gave me a necklace for Christmas that is a circle pendant and it has words written on top. It says A circle of love kept by God and held together forever. It was describing family. I wear it all the time. Thanks Aunt Ann!

Such a great picture!!

Cowboy, the horse and Tractor Sam (that's what the girls call him)

Kristy and Emma walking to see the cows

Ella Grace running to me...gosh I really love my girls!

Emma Catherine Butler 2years old

Ella Grace Butler 2 years old

Chris doesn't like to have his picture taken. I was trying to pretend I was just taking Ella Grace's picture, but he caught on. He told her to say Don't do that Aunt Heather. It was pretty funny until she said it about something else later that night!
Kristy reading to sweet!
Emma and Mary Bennett

Jay, Aunt Susie and Sam

Kristy, Lacy and me outside before the prayer. At 3pm on Christmas Day, the entire family gathers together holds hands and Grandaddy prays. He wasn't feeling well so Aunt Emily prayed and did a great job. She did start the waterworks though!

Sorry Lacy! Caught you in the act of singing I'm a little teapot!
Aunt Ann and Ella. Aunt Ann helped take care of the girls so we could play cards. (which I am the reigning Rigsby Phase 10 winner from Thanksgiving and Christmas and am expecting my trophy from Uncle Scott!)
My sweet Aunt Clair!
Emma and Ella Grace had just had their bath and Emma's hair was all over the place. We spend Christmas night at my brother and sister in law's house.

Even though my eyes are closed, I love this picture!

The girls were opening their presents from Gigi.

Heather's new wallet I gave her.

I bought Heather this cute Liz purse when I was in Columbus over Thanksgiving. The girls fought over who was going to get to carry it first. It's already starting!

The girls diggin in their toyboxes for more surprises!

The toyboxes I gave them for Christmas. Ansley Bolton Edenfield did such a fabulous job painting them!

At the end of a very long day!!! I absolutely LOVE my sister in law, Heather!


We ended the night with some PG fun by riding on the golf cart around Stone Creek and looking at Christmas lights. The boys really liked them especially Mills! This is Ashton and Melanie.
Mills and Melanie. Not sure what that face was all about, but he was excited!

Sweet Mills
Bay and Ashton
The Moorman Boys
I told yall I was gonna see how many people I could gag gift this shirt to! Ashley was not happy since he thought the shirt was the only thing in his bag. He was pleased with his gift card!
Mel opening her present
Mills was happy with his movie...or maybe just happy that he got to rip open a present.

Ashton, Bay, and Mills opening their presents from me. Thankfully there were some good kids movies that came out in November/December that were perfect gifts for the boys. Last year I spent Christmas Eve with the Moormans helping Melanie wrap the boys presents. It was only fitting that I go spend time with them this year. (not to mention that the movies I bought them were on their list to Santa so I had to get them to them before Santa came) I also was in a not so great mood and I knew those boys would perk me right up. I was supposed to go to church with the family and have dinner with them at Patsy's, but I just couldn't motivate myself to do it. I was very sad and missing my dad and just wanted to skip Christmas all together. I hope my family understands that and I that I do love them.
Emily and I always sit at our office on Christmas Eve incase anyone needs a last minute gift card. We used to order Steak Out, which used to be around the corner, and have it delivered. It made us gigle. This year Emily had to go get our lunch, but I have to admit Slap Daddy's is mighty yummy! We left the office and went to Kohl's to do some last minute shopping. It was a great day.


Ella Grace loving on a baby doll...probably one of Whitney's old cabbage patch kids!
Me and Mary Bennett!

I interupt these postings of Christmas parties to wish my cousin Lacy a very Happy Birthday! Love You!


The card playing gang. 4 of us were playing Phase 10 and and the other 4 were playing Spades. I decided to go back to the College and Career Department when we reorganized Sunday School classes at the first of December. This was our first big get together.

I've never had a friend named Tiffany until now!

Not sure what Jeffrey was doing, but I love when I capture funny pics unintentionally. I was trying to catch the guys in the action of playing the Wii. We had 2 Wii's 1 Playstation a movie and cards going! It was a lot of fun!
A blurry action shot...the guys were playing bowling.
