    This Little Diva is quite content

    Amidst all the merriment and chaos, this little one finds contentment in her own little corner.

    Who needs prime rib of roast, honeybaked ham, broccoli casseroles, and homemade mashed potatoes when you have CHEERIOS!!!

    Christmastime in V-Town

    Auntie Geisha and SOME of the Rugrats!

    Our family tradition for Christmas has always been celebrated on Christmas Eve.

    Being the youngest of five children......and the aunt to 10 nieces, nephews, and grand-nephews........sufficed to say it is sheer joyful chaos at the household at Christmas.

    This year was no exception.

    Stockings were hung on the chimney with care.......and the kids.......it's always about the kids at Christmas......were on their best behavior as they await the arrival of Santa Claus.

    Every year, it gets more difficult to convince the *older* ones......that, yes........the white guy in the fat Santa suit is NOT your Uncle Doug from Connecticut !!! ;-))

    Sending their smiles across the miles....

    Some of the presents were imported all the way from Paris!

    The girls were so excited about their Parisian berets..........they couldn't stop saying "Merci Beacoup" and "Oooh La La" all night!

    Gee, I wonder where they get that from?

    The Anticipation.......

    The kids gather to hide and wait for Santa..........

    We build up the anticipation by banging the side of the house with bells......basically anything we can find in my Dad's garage that can make a merry noise. This could include instruments from his old Navy days and car horns.

    Not quite the sounds of sleigh bells, but it alwyas does the trick !!

    Passing the time until Santa arrives

    It is always easiest to get into the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT when you have the Jackson 5 Christmas album spinning on the stereo (another family tradition) and moments like these to savor.............

    He knows when you are sleeping.......and faking!

    The rugrats were born actors!

    Too excited to actually nap before Santa arrives, they resort to their best acting skills.

    We grow up just way too fast!

    It was Picasso who said, "Every child is an artist... the problem is remaining a child once you grow up."

    I see a little bit of myself in these kids........and a little bit of them in me.

    O Christmas Tree

    Coming home for Christmas, always means trying to make your way to find some space to sit in my Parent's living room.

    The tree just becomes the "centerpiece" for the room full of gifts!
