Happy New Year!

The clock is ticking to the final countdown to 2011. I'm looking forward to the new year with all of it's new possibilities! Wishing each and everyone a Happy & Blessed New Year. May all of your dreams come true!!! I thought I would end this year by sharing some of our family Christmas gatherings!





My son & daughter n law!
My niece Avery and my granddaughter, this was Avery's first time to see the baby. Avery is our family star... she won the Miss Rodeo Texas Teen, Miss Rodeo Texas, & competed in the Miss Rodeo USA, she came in 10th place at this competition... she has accomplished many other achievements, and we are very proud of her!
This is my stepdaughter!
This is my stepdaughter with our granddaughter Amberly, this is also her first time to get to see the baby, as she is away at college most of the time!
This was some of the family playing the game gestures... as for me I just watched and took pictures, I don't mind playing games but this one you had to get up in front of everyone and act out was was on your card, I'm just a little to shy for that!
My daughter n law with Amberly opening her gifts!
I just had to take a picture of my mother n laws Dinning room, she covered her wall in this beautiful fabric years ago, and she's fixing to take it all down and put wall paper up! I couldn't believe she's taken it down, but I guess after years of it being up she's ready for a change!
So many yummy things to eat!

I took this picture simply because I've always loved this cupboard in her Dinning room!
That's my mother in the background, my niece and stepdaughter! Well I'll be talking to ya in 2011..... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hi sweetie,
Amberly is just precious, what a fun age for Christmas fun. It looks like you all had a wonderful holiday. I agree about MIL's toile walls. You could make a slew of bags with all that!! She has some beautiful pieces. Hope you have a great NYE, I'm home of course watching Toy Story. Lisa
