Happy New Year!

What a blessed family we are!! We LOVE being together and enjoy many meals and fun times together. We gathered at my mom and dad's for New Year's Day festivities. We ate, collards, black eyed peas, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and many other good old country cookin' things! Then we went out on the porch for a little family photo shoot. Thank goodness it was 68 degrees and noone froze! Jon even let us make his picture even though he'd just had surgery on his mouth. Look, we got a shot of Emersyn's face with a smile on it!!! Wow!! We usually just get the side of her face or the back of her head!

Chad and Lauren are so excited to add another granddaughter to our family! Can't wait til May to meet little Kinsley Faith Everette!

Look at this precious little angel! Don't you just want to squeeze her?? She has brought so much joy into our lives! We love our Emersyn!!

And, Emersyn loves Papa! She is always waving at him or saying "Papa" or standing on his feet. She even takes him some of her toys (but she always wants them back). What a blessed family we are to have each other!! Happy New Year! May it be the best one yet!!
