the last christmas pics

ok, as i've been looking through my pictures i have found some that i never posted
first up is christmas day at grandma sherrill's house
grandma sherrill is 90 yeas old and now lives in a nursing home
she fell and broke her hip last february and was not able to recover enough to live without assistance
it is so heartbreaking to see her in a nursing home, but it was our only choice
however, she is able to leave the home for a day and my uncle has been really good about bringing her to her own house every week or two
we all met up at her house on christmas day so she could see everyone
she's gone down a lot and has lost a lot of weight this year
sometimes she talks about things that don't make sense, but most of the time she is very coherent and knows what is going on
for example, she knows these kids are nothing but trouble! ha!
she will see them (mostly mine) misbehave and make some comment about disciplining (spanking) her!

 i looked so bad on christmas day (note to self:  start wearing makeup and getting dressed up for holidays)
sometimes i just love to not have to deal with make up and hair
but, clearly  those days are over!

 these 3 are trouble for sure!  (molly-3, maddie-5, eddie-4)
 then, a few days after christmas uncle jeff (who is really my 2nd cousin, but molly calls him uncle) came and brought her presents
uncle jeff buys the best presents!
 first up was this cool lava lamp to put in her bedroom
she thinks this is cool beans for sure!

 next up were two outfits from janie and jack
ok, i love browsing this store but this mama can't afford to shop there
so i loved the clothes a lot more than molly (of course)

 even the boxes were adorable!!!
 total cuteness!
and he bought her another beautiful dress i didn't get a picture of

 what was molly most interested in?
uncle jeff's ipad!
it's so funny, with a few instructions she was busy for the night

 she's now a pro at angry birds
i have no idea how to do any of it!
i have no i pad or i phone or smart phone
i don't even text!

so thanks uncle jeff!  we loved visiting with you and your ipad!

Hi, I love your blog. I know I am a complete stranger and therefore my opinion doesn't even matter...but I wanted to say it anyway! lol Don't be so hard on yourself about "not doing hair and makeup" everyday. I think when we are proud of who we REALLY are we are being the best example for our kids. I personally gave up make-up (except on the rare occasion) since becoming a mom. I want my girls to know that true beauty is natural beauty and for my son to see past the makeup and name brand clothes the girl is wearing and to instead look at who she really is.

I think you look beautiful even without the makeup! :)

Just my opinion!

I failed the 'smart phone' test so I just use my nice and easy track phone. Cheaper anyway.
