Happy Holidays and my chip holder

I've been wanting a chip bag holder.  I found one this week.  It is holding some of my Christmas cards

Maybe if we wish very hard . . .

White Christmas in The South - 2010
Snow photos can be so blah and don't show the magic of snow and I didn't feel like trying to edit them.
A Christmas Day snow is VERY special to southerners.


It seems that the weather people enjoy telling us that there is no chance for a repeat performance this Christmas.  What do they know?  I'm holding on to my wish.

Curious track in the snow

Ah-ha !

More Christmas, again

The only things vintage in this photo are my grandmother's tureen and the china cabinet.  Those ornaments are modern "unbreakable".  I call the red one the "hand grenade" ornaments.

The Coca-Cola ad is from the 90s, but I liked it.

The Leaning Family Tree

These family photo ornaments I made a few  years ago.  This tree is in the study.  Anyone remotely close to me  knows that one of my hobbies is old family photos.  Every year when I put this tree up I decide to add more family members.  This year I need to work on some more aunts and uncles.

Can't have a family tree without the main family.
Me and my husband with our handsome son

Hubby and his parents
Me and my parents

Next are our grandparents
My mother and her parents

My father and his parents
My husband's maternal grandparents and uncle who died young

My husband's paternal grandparents

My husband's family (and my son) live and breathe University of  Tennessee Vols sports, mostly football.  This lady is one of my husband's maternal Great-grandmothers.  You'll never guess what her maiden name was.

This lady is Tennessee "Tennie" Voils
These are hubby's paternal Great-grandparents

Next are my maternal Great-grandparents.

These are my paternal Great-grandparents.

I am fortunate enough to have photos of some of my Great-great-grandparents.  I notice I missed taking a  photo of one set.

My aunts and uncles.  This year I will add their spouses.
