Christmas 2008 Pics

Happy Snodgrass 3

The olders waiting for the elders to come down early in the morning.

(Click on the picture to see Carter's expression, not so good of Cole- he will not be pleased.) I honestly laughed when I saw this (waiting that is). Totally picture worthy! They were up at 6:30ish for I heard them walking around. They were advised not to wake us till 7. Stuart is always up at that time. No matter how late he goes down at night he is up at 7. He is my alarm clock.

Can't be Christmas without your cookies & milk.

We had a great day of staying in our pjs. (I even took two naps) After a late (10:30) breakfast, the older boys went on a hike with Aunt Jeanie. We then met her with Stuart at Grandma & Poppy's for Christmas dinner. Grandma outdid herself this year. The cookie spread was like I have never seen it.

Thank you all for praying for a non cancer surgery recovery day. It was GREAT!!

Much love,

Seeing your pictures and feeling your happy hearts were enough Christmas for all of us. Everyone had a more blessed Christmas with your health these days, Kate. May God bless us everyone, and may we all seek Him more during the coming new year.

I DID enlarge the picture to see the boys' expressions! What a riot! And kind of like inmates in the striped black & white PJ's...but I know they're too well-behaved, on an average day, to be inmates! Ha! The picture of you w/ the milk is cute! You always HAVE been photogenic! Blessings to you this Christmas, Kate. Prayed for you and your family SEVERAL times yesterday and reminisced, as well, your stint at the Rehab hospital... Hugs! Merry Christmas! L Jo and the clan

Merry Christmas, Kate!

Finally a Family of Four said...

I love the pictures of the boys. Especially the 2 older boys waiting for everyone to come down.
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas.

Hi Kate,

So glad you got the Christmas that you longed for! The boys pictures perfectly captured the sentiments of children throughout the ages; how well I remember the Christmas I got a 10-speed bike. Have a blessed day and give my love to the kids.

What sweet boys! Love the pix of the 2 waiting at the bottom of the steps. At least they sat quietly while waiting (I hope)... they were just excited. Isn't it amazing how different the facial expressions are while waiting. Cute! Love it!

Kate, I haven't checked your blog in some time, so I'm happy to hear that you are doing well.

Cherish your family every day, as I know that you do. God Bless You!

Hi Kate! It's New Year's Eve today and I'm catching up on lots of things, including your blog. Jordan is running around with Isaac and Elijah, and I'm loving spending the day with all 3 of them while "L Jo" is at work. She did the same for me yesterday...

Thanks for sharing the Christmas morning pics! Sounds like you had a wonderful, low-key Christmas. I'm so glad God gave that gift to you and your family.

I'm remembering how much fun we had a few weeks ago at El Nopal... and some of the BIG laughs! (Specifically something Sue said without realizing it!) It was fun to spend that time with all of you, and hopefully we can do it again soon. We'll have to "conference" Sue in, of course.

Gotta run. Three kids are playing the piano and singing LOUDLY. I've got to get a movie of the "performance!" :->

Praying for a VERY healthy 2009 for you.

Happy New Year!!
