Gratuitous Family Shots

Here are some shots of Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. I was sick on the 25th, so Biggy caught the Santa events on video, but I wanted to include in the blog--just in case I get hit by that bus--how happy I was to have everyone there.


I'd also like to apologize to my grandmother, who was such a good sport when we all finished eating and cleared the table around her while she tried to finish her own dinner. Looking back on it, what was our rush? When I'm 80, everyone had better damn well sit with me if it takes all night.



Biggy shares his pie with Lo.


Yoda & Luke


JackMan


Sadie & George


The East Cobb Geek Squad


Sadie hearts Lola.


Mamoo & Granny


Lo woke us around 7:30, and then she had to wait for her brother and sisters to join her on the stairs before the procession to Santaland. Poor Jack got a lot happier when he saw his PS3.





Lo's Santa stash. No sense even showing the others.

Needy much, Jennifer? lol

Wow, that is one hell of a stash of presents for Lo. I don't think I ever received that many toys at once during Christmas.

mamoo said...

the food was taken away and the dishes in the dishwasher within 15 minutes of lola saying the blessing. god knows i don't need seconds but granny and i barely got firsts.

Biggy said...

mamoo, I believe you got thirds.

MF, Jack got a PS3. "Poor Jack" is no longer applicable.

Jennifer, Tania has forbidden us to read your blog for fear of corruption.

Jennifer, Biggy's lying. I don't care if my family is corrupted.

Jennifer said...

Why hasn't Collin come to my blog? Biggy, yeah, right, like your family isn't corrupt enough already...

Those pics are great! I always thought my family was the only one in the world that had to line up on the stairs to take a million pictures before being released into the living room.

I just want everyone to notice that in the "East Cobb Geek Squad" picture, I am the only one without red eyes...

That made my day. That shot of Lo on the stairs with the pistol reminds me of myself for so many years: cued up at the top of the stairs like "let's do this thing!"
