Christmas 2011

Our Christmas was as lovely as ever and I feel so blessed to have enjoyed having my two children and their families for the entire day!  I'm incredibly grateful for God's goodness and we are looking forward to a wonderful New Year.  I hope you are, too!
~MY MISS K and I~
My Favorite 'Little Girl'
(in the whole-wide-world)

For the first time in years and years and years I'm packing up my Christmas decorations early.  From as far back as I can remember I've kept all our holiday pretties up until New Year's Day and then spent January 2nd taking them all down and packing them away for the next year...
~My Daughter-in-Love~
Miss K's Momma
Our Sarah Girl

But, not this year!  With my Mr. AGPMan in school he will soon be busy with studies again and if I want to get some much needed help from him then I have to take it while I can get it!  Hauling stuff up into our attic isn't my idea of fun!  I've been busy reorganizing, clearing things away, wrapping and packing.  I must admit it will be nice to start the New Year fresh and clean without having so many things pressing on my 2-Do-List.

I couldn't resist showing you the girls in my life!  My Mr. AGPMan is NOT the best picture-taker in the world and so I'm so happy to have the photo above taken of my three favorite girls and I on Christmas Day!  

My Miss K is going to be spending a few days with me this week and that always makes me happy!  She's in 3rd grade now and busy with school during most of the year.  I'm happy when I can have her around for more than just a few hours...

I hope and pray your Christmas was all you dreamed it would be and you are looking forward to a bright, promising New Year...

I'll be back soon...

Love to you~

Oh...these are beautiful pictures of you and your girls. All 4 of you are so pretty!

My tree is dying very quickly...I am hoping it lasts until New Years or I will be taking everything down, too.

Enjoy your time with your darling granddaughter!!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas with your girls, love the pics! I've always taken my Christmas down the day after Christmas, but this year, I'm in the mood to leave it up for a while :) It's never looked this good, thanks to blogging it's looking beautiful and I want to savor it.

Rebecca...I love the picture of you and "your girls!" You all look so lovely sitting in front of your pretty Christmas tree. Glad you had a nice Christmas.

My brother Dan, who just had open heart surgery less than two weeks ago got saved on Christmas day! And he shared it with the family yesterday (the 26th) when we had our family gathering. Isn't that awesome? I have been praying for him to accept Jesus for many, many years now! So we are rejoicing!

Beautiful GIRLS... ALL of you! I love it that you all get to spend lots of time together! AND that Miss K will be by your side this week too! She is adorable and has the sweetest smile!

I am leaving my decorations until next week! Out-of-town guests this weekend and more gifts to exchange! Have a blessed evening dear Rebecca, HUGS!

NanaDiana said...

Rebecca- What a beautiful family of girls you are! I love the pictures. I think little Miss K is going to look a lot like you when she is all grown up. I can see it in her face shape already.

You are way ahead of the game in getting your decorations down and stored. I won't start until after New Year's Day this year.

Blessings and love to you- xo Diana

Great picture, what a treasure! I believe Miss K looks a lot like you! I took my Christmas stuff down yesterday as my son was still here to put it all back in the attic. He drove 12 hours and just called to say he made it home, I am so relived. You are so lucky to have your kids close by, so glad you had such a great Christmas

Dearest Rebecca,

Lovely girls photos! Your husband did very well and there is joy on the faces radiating on these photos. May it last till the next Christmas get-together and let's all hope for a great 2012. With mutual support it will be great. Nothing happens on its own but the hard work pays off in the end.
Love to you,
