What Christmas is all About!
The reason for my not blogging lately is in the photo above. They are my two darling nieces who I simple adore. The dark hair beauty lives in California and I only get to see her twice a year. The fair hair angel lives in Newnan and I see her often. They are both 12 with birthday's one month and one day apart. It has been such a pleasure for me to watch them grow. This Christmas they are still little girls with one foot in the pages of a teenager. It is so much fun! My poor little Dixie was almost lost in the photo. Hang in there Dix, they are only here for two weeks.
This summer the subject of digital cameras came up. Two years ago I gave both girls cameras. They have taken great care of them and used them a lot. They happen to tell me that this Christmas they would love a new PINK camera. Of course, Aunt Chere remembered with baited breath. Pant! Pant! This one special gift they get to open before Christmas, to take pictures of course.
Skylar got hers open first. There was pure joy on her face. And of course a big scream "IT'S PINK"!
Makayla was seconds behind in the excitement to tear open her gift. They both hugged, rolled on the floor yelling "IT'S PINK". To me, this is what gift giving is all about. It makes my heart sing to see the joy and thrill of these two beauties.
The budding little photographers were armed and ready at a family gathering last night. Mac is really getting into looking at her pictures and seeing how it looks. She will delete it if the photo is not to her liking. Skylar is still in the mode of click, click, click. That is the great thing about the digital world. Step one: click away at anything standing or sitting still, Step Two: down load photos to computer, Step Three: look at the picture, Step Four: decide what pictures you want to print, Step Five: print photos, Step Six: delete.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!! THREE DAYS AND COUNTING!!!!!!!
