Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY





Christmas at the Christopher
The First pic is of the boys playing poker. It seemed like they were having a good time and I hear my hubby was winning. There are 3 boys. Peter is the oldest, then hubby MIchael and then Tim who is the youngest who lives in Florida. The chair is to represent the fact that we missed Tim and his family this year..At first, the empty chair was a joke but in all reality, we missed them

I like the empty chair pic.

I made sure the kids got a picture of our holiday hearth....we didn't have a tree this year because I couldn't bear to touch an ornament. I told them they would always remember this Christmas because they let me do what I had to do. They were so supportive.

Great pics! Nothing like a competitive game of poker to top off the evening :)
Happy Wednesday and Happy New Year!

Rayne said...

Excellent photos. I love 'slice of life' pics like this. Sorry you couldn't have had the whole family together. I understand. We are a military family and I can't remember the last time we've had family around for the holidays.

Great shots--the empty chair does say a lot and the poker pic is universal. It's funny how all guys have the same poker posture.

I love the empty chair pic. It's so inviting and comfy-- like you saved the best for the family member that couldn't be there. I hope you get to see him soon enough.

Thanks for stopping by our site.
