Christmas with Nana

My mother's mother is getting up there in years and it just is a bit overwhelming to her to have a large get-together. Also, five minutes after it's over she's forgotten that it ever took place and is fretting about getting everyone gifts. This year, some of us just met at a frozen yogurt place to give her little do-dads and so she could give the younger family members some candy and stickers. While we were there, I convinced Claire to let Pappy pull her very first tooth. It was very exciting. Later on that night, I pulled the next loose tooth. We tease her that Nora stole her teeth since the two that she is missing are the same two in Nora's mouth.

And now Part 3

Tra, la, la, la, la, la, cough, snort, sniff.

I am sick. Nora is sick. Elaina is sick. Eily is sick. Claire was sick but she seems to be over it.

We are in Tennessee for Christmas and I'm hopeful that we will all feel better before the rest of the out-of-towners show up. We are all going to the chiro in a few minutes to see if Dr. Jason can get help us get on the road to recovery.

I hope you all have a happy, healthy, harmonious holiday weekend.

Our AR Christmas 2011 Part 1

We had a fun time opening presents, eating donuts and playing with new toys. I don't have much time to write a stimulating paragraph so I'm just going to post pictures.  Warning: I get a little carried away editing with a seventies feel. Sorry.
