Our Christmas tree tradition! The only time we ever still use our wagon! Pulling boys down to the Church on the corner, picking the tree and the kids picking the best little tree for them. Sam pulls the tree back every year! Reggie is also sporting his new coat:)

  1. What wonderful pictures and memories! Even though it’s been quite a few years now, I still find the holidays hard with having the kids with me part of the time–that’s been a hard adjustment of divorce. But, the kids get 2 Christmases–with two families who love them dearly. Your kids are so blessed to have you as a mom/step-mom. You’ve really created a wonderful home for all your kids–and it’s not easy, especially if there are exes involved who aren’t supportive. I like the way you’re livin’ life! Happy Holidays!

  2. Does Reggie get lost in the snow? I had a white dog growing up – a Samoyed. She looked SO white unless she was against snow and then she was more off-white against pure white snow. However when she’d bury her head in there so we couldn’t see the blacks of her nose and eyes, we’d have to strain our eyes to find her sometimes!!
    And I love when Reggie is being served his “feast.”
