Christmas With Kids At Almost Heaven South

After all of the food posts, I thought it was time for a break.

We started the Christmas gift-opening with the Doolittle grandkids, Matthew and Sophia, on Tuesday evening.  Sorry about the photo quality, but click on them to enlarge.

No doubt about it, Christmas morning is definitely different when three young kids are here - Riley, Reese, and Madison (Alex) Walker.

And the aftermath.  They did a pretty good job keeping their stuff together and the trash picked up.

And to make it even better, we had a white Christmas. We were right at the top of the storm that moved through the area and it began snowing a little before daybreak and snowed until mid afternoon. There was enough to cover the ground, but it was warm enough as to not lay on the roads – perfect.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Great pictures Larry! We ended up being snowed in, and had to cancel our travel plans.

  2. Kids make Christmas so special. Looks like everyone had fun and Santa arrived as anticipated.

  3. Great pictures Larry. I agree perfect when it't on the ground but not on roads. Looks like everyone had a great Christmas and did you know you have snakes in your house? :-)

  4. I am finally back at Lake Lure until tomorrow so catching up here. You sure did a lot of cooking over the holidays. It all looks outstanding Larry. Kids make all of the difference at Christmas. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  5. Great Christmas morning pictures.... Glad some of your family was home for Christmas... I know all of you had a wonderful day!!!!


  6. It looks like you had a great Christmas! Love the princess dancing around the room, and the t-rex is really a great toy!

  7. I sure it was a special holiday with the kids there. The excitement can be electric and it is contagious. I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday. Blessings...Mary

  8. Beautiful pictures, Larry. I got to spend Christmas with children this year, too, and it just made the holiday so fun.

  9. I hope you got some good rest after Christmas because it seems like you busted your tail the whole week of Christmas. You're going to have to un-retire just so you can get some rest :)

    Glad you got to spend time the with grandkids because kids make Christmas to me.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
