Merry Christmas!

I hope your Christmas Day was filled with a lot of love surrounded by family and friends. :)

Oh! I received the most beautiful Christmas card from Rose @ http://my-bella-rosa.blogspot.com/ You all visit her blog. She is such a wonderful gal. Thank you soooo much Rose! You made my day! I am so blessed to have met such wonderful bloggers online. :) God bless each and everyone of you.

Here I am showing off a necklace my wonderful husband gave me. Can you see it? hee hee And look at my nail that needs to be polished again. *blush* My 11 yr old took this picture and chopped off the top of my head. *shocking* I had my hair highlighted and trimmed. I'm still trying to get used to how my hair looks now. I'm trying real hard not to give in to buying a box of haircolor to darken it!


My necklace looks like this and I love it! From “The Shared Heart” collection…two hearts beating as one from Zales. I love it!

We went to church on Christmas Eve and our younger sons were in the Christmas pageant. Here are the wise men sitting patiently. :) The one in the middle is my 11 yr old. I think that out of all our boys, this one resembles me the most. IMG_5263


And the next two pictures are my twin boys. :) This is my innkeeper.IMG_5269


Look at these precious faces. The first child is one of my twin boys, my shepherd boy.IMG_5270


And this is our godchild. Look at that smile. :)IMG_5271

What a wonderful time we had. We really enjoyed the pageant. *sigh* Love all my boys. :)

Mass was beautiful as was the Christmas pageant. Our parish was filled and many had to stand because there was no room.

I hope you enjoyed my pictures from Christmas Eve. :)

Oh Sandra..
Hoaw absolutely precious these pics are of your boys. They sure look like they were having fun in the pageant. It is always such a special time.

Now about your hair. Sweetie it looks beautiful, do not cover it up. Enjoy it. It really is becoming on you. I love it.

Love your heart. How precious of DH to give you such a special gift. Love from the heart.

Happy New Year sweetie. Thank you so much for making my 2009 a memorable one. I have so enjoyed getting to know you through our blogs.

Country hugs and much love..>Sherry

Sandra, your hair is gorgeous ... don't change it. I love the highlights.

Two hearts bound with one another ... true love ... what a precious heart gift your DH gave you. I love that Indian doll, too. So thoughtful to capture your wishes for you. I'd treasure the doll also.

The wee ones are darling. Our Mass may have had the pageant on Christmas Eve but on Christmas morn Mass was just a simple celebration of Christ's birth ... Fr. Jason made it a warm rich simple celebration.

Have a beautiful week, sweetie.
Hugs, Marydon

What a beautiful gift, your necklace. I am a true romantic and that gift speaks volumes about how much your guy loves you. You boys are so handsome. 6 sons! God Bless you! I see how dark you hair was in the profile picture but truly your new color looks so beautiful on you. Happy New Year to you and your family.

Beautiful necklace Sandra! Love it! I worked for Zales for five years. Good times.

I remember those pageant days!....sigh. Perhaps with grandkids we can start all over again. Actually, our little Olivia goes to kindergarten at a parochial school and we went to her Christmas musical. She was a dancing snowflake and sang a song!
By the way, Sandra, did you get my email with my address? Or did I even send it to you? I won your giveaway, and for the life of me, I cannot remember if I sent it to you or not. With all the Christmas activity, there was quite a bit that I may have missed. LOL!
Please let me know. Thanks so much.
