Christmas 2008









Maggie's God daughter and life sized Barbie spent Christmas day with us. It was a joy to have them. I hope you find his picture as hilarious as I do. Criag spent much time playing with Barbie and S.


Maggie and Fred joined us as well, and we so enjoyed having them. We had a ton of laughs and very much fun.





Grandpa Doug stayed in town all week, so Murray finally was able to spend some time with him. They were hilarious together.

Unfortunately, my memory card was out of space on Christmas Eve at the Beckerleg's, so I have 2 picture which aren't very good. We do have good video though.

We were all truly blessed; though the holiday brought much grief (due to missing my mom immensely and the passing of our fellow blogger/mommy friend, Emilie) we felt joy as well. 'Tis the reason for the season. God Bless.

Marie,
I experienced the same back-and-forth of sorrow and joy this Christmas. Murray will continue to guide you through the grief -- just love him up all you can.
Looking forward to talking to you soon.

Ha ha, the picture with Craig and Barbie and Scarlett is pretty funny. Actually, I would like a copy of all of them if possible, but it does creep me out a little. Barbie is EVERYWHERE!

Mags,
Life Sized Barbie is creepy, you hit the nail on the head. How funny. And the picture, well, I don't think I'll ever get Craig to play with any type of barbies again, even if we have a girl next!

Love you Sister!
