I have pictures on Shutterfly. This link should get you there: Christmas 2007

No pictures details yet, but they start with the giving of the new Cinderella Vanity, which we did on December 19th, to avoid overwhelming the poor girl with too many “big” items on Christmas morning, then we move on to the Celebration at Preschool, then Christmas Eve here at the house with Nana, Uncle Kerry and Mom-Mom. Then Christmas morning (early!) and finally a few karate poses and posing with Buck-dog cousin over at Uncle Kerry’s house. I also have videos loaded, but I need to load them over at You Tube then link them. I will work on that some time this weekend.

We had a fun, not really stressful at all, time the whole time. We all received and gave very nice gifts with minimal returns.

Note to gift givers: If you are rail thin and have been all your life, do not try to guess the size of a fat person. Really, buying me a large when I likely wear anywhere from an XL to a 2Xl depending on the fit is NOT flattering to me and more likely, offensive. Go with something that fits everyone, a gift card to that store -or- if that is too impersonal for you go with something that can always be used. Clothing is just not something you should buy someone unless you 100% know their size, style, color preference and ability to wear certain fabrics. Also, when buying clothes for the smaller humans in the family you may want to ask a size instead of guessing. Buying little Suzy a size 8 when Suzy is half that size is a waste. We COULD put the things away, but how do we know little Suzy will be in that size when winter comes that particular year? Just ask- or go with a toy instead.

End of lessson.

On to the ringing in of the New Year festivities!
