Real quick - thank you to everyone who read my "Life" blog and commented. I truly appreciate all the comments and was quickly reminded why I've always loved this place. I've been here over 5 years now - and while I miss quite a few faces that use to be here, I love all the faces that I still have here, and recently some new additions! THANK YOU!!
The last two days I've been doing some decorating around the house. We planned to do the tree this weekend, but then I realized Emily will be barely be around (as is the case much of the time lately). She works Fri night, has SATs Saturday morning, her Noel Ball is that evening, and she works 11-7 on Sunday. So I hurried up yesterday afternoon and put the tree up and everyone was surprised when they got home from school (or up from their nap in Carly's case).
Last night was the first time in probably 2 weeks that we were all at the dinner table together...it was awesome!
So here they are...
The kids are all growing up so fast! Birthday season is right after Christmas for us. Carly will be 2 next month, Emily will be 18 in February, and Chad will be 14 in March. Time sure does fly...I know, I say that all the time!!
Happy Holidays to all of you - my wonderful Spark family!
Oh how lovely!!! Miss Carly is getting so grown up! 2 years old, time IS flying!!! Thank you so much for sharing these pictures with us, it always bring a smile to my face to see your beautiful children's smiles! 2245 days ago
Thank you so much for sharing your Christmas tree pics with us Beth! Carly and Preston have grown so much! That was thoughtful of you to put the tree up while Emily was home! I hope your holidays will be wonderful!
Beth I would never have recognized any of them and not even you in your previous photo. Carly has amazing hair and a serious look in all of these photos. PRESTON is still PRESTON I must admit. He certainly is still a character. CHAD has become a good looking boy, now he ignores the camera, they grow up so fast for certain. Emily has changed a lot she still is a busy young lady, is she interested in college at all.
I am so happy to have found you again, Christmas will still be wonderful for the children and you make memories with your camera. Pat in Maine. 2281 days ago
Oh my Emily and Chad have grown, Chad's not dodging the camera so much now. Of course Preston and Carly have too, it's just I expect little ones to grow. I remember when Preston was Carly's size- Isn't it nice when everyone is at the table at the same time and it's not a holiday! for the children. 2281 days ago
Time really does fly and I am seeing it right here in your pictures. Your kids are growing up. Carly was just born, was she not? And, in your mothers mind, I'm sure you think all the time that Emily was just born yesterday too, I know I do. Enjoy them while you can, cause it goes by in the blink of an eye. Love the tree, gorgeous!! 2281 days ago
