Hustle and Bustle

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us. My sister and her family arrived from New Jersey yesterday and we've been hitting the stores ... we even braved Costco today! Last night we started watching old 8mm movies of us when we were kids. My grandfather was a camera buff and we have over 10 years worth of film (circa 1961 forward). It was fun for us, but I think our own kids enjoyed it more seeing their parents as babies and little kids. My mom had 5 kids in 6 years, yet she always seemed to have a smile on her face . . . no doubt she was just faking it for the camera! Jack was laughing quite hard -- not sure he knew what he was laughing at, but he always likes to join in with the laughing. It's just so nice that he can be out of bed and in the family room with the rest of us. My brother from North Carolina arrives tomorrow with his family and my other brother arrives from Ohio with his four kids on the 26th. I'll try and take pictures throughout the next few days to share.

Wishing you all a peaceful Christmas with family and friends.

Hope you have a lovely christmas with your family. We are just the five of us this year, so it will be relatively peaceful (I hope! - no surprises please, Mr Sam!).

Wishing a happy and healthy christmas to all your family.

Love Julie
