Merry, Merry Christmas…

… to all of my beloved readers. Seriously, I am CRAZY GO NUTS over you guys.

Here’s a Christmas card, just for you. It was taken when Charlotte was about 4 years old, and for some unknown reason in the middle of July somebody set up a complete manger scene across the street from us, in the front yard of the Rev. Becca Stevens. We later figured out it was one of her practical joking parishoners, but at any rate, little Charlotte was completely entranced with the whole thing, and we ended up with what is now a Taff family classic photo.

So, from our family to yours, with lots of love–

    That is so cute!
    Look at her little hands.

    My favorite picture is always gonna be the ‘birth announcement’ picture,though. I love Char’s baby hand curled up on Madi’s shoulder.

    That is just precious Tori! Thank you for sharing that with us.

    I hope you, Russ, Madi and Char all had a wonderful Christmas together. I was very blessed (despite the fact that I am suffering from an acute ear infection AGAIN! LOL) to be able to spend today with all of my aunts, uncle, several of my cousins and my parents and brother. It was like an old-fashioned Christmas when my grandmother was alive. Just wish I had been able to enjoy that good turkey and ham that my cousin had cooked. But I ate some of the sweet potato casserole, squash casserole, mashed potatoes and stuffing so I did get a little taste of it all. ;)

    Hope and pray you all have a blessed New Year and here’s to an even better 2009!

    Tori, we are CRAZY GO NUTS over you, Russ, Madi, and Char, also. Hope Christmas was a wonderful day, and looking forward to hearing about it….with lots of pictures.

    What a precious picture of Char. A keeper, for sure.

    Enjoy the rest of your little vacation, and especially your trip.

    Talk about a picture-perfect-Christmas card….how totally precious!

    Gracious, what’s not to love about Tori Taff?….the adorable blog hostess, who is a combination of charm, wit and wisdom….with a little daring thrown in at times.

    Merry Christmas, Sweet Pea… are loved.

    Yes! I was hoping you would put this picture up! I will always remember you telling me : “Charlotte Loves her Some Jesus!” except I was disappointed to find that it was actually Joseph. (Oh well.)

    Merry Christmas!

    Hey-I like this kid ‘Jess’! Just the right touch of our kind of humor.

    What a precious precious picture. One that will always be cherished. I have to say that my favorite Christmas picture from the past would have to be my (now 23 yr old) son in the arms of Santa Claus giving him a sweet big hug. My son was about 3 at the time. Of course, he can do without me sharing it with others, but the sweet innocent look on his face is just priceless…Tori, I hope you and the family had a peaceful and relaxing Christmas. I pray God’s most abundant blessings on you in 2009…God Bless, friend
