Choccie, hugs, and pressies: Fedoralady’s Christmas 2012

Standard

Got my replacement card reader today and thought I would share a few photos from the family Christmas in Birmingham. Some of this offers proof we share the same DNA.  Entered into evidence, these photos of my great-niece A licking the bowl after her auntie SB  finishes whipping up something chocolatey.

Thirty-plus years ago, a little blonde-haired toddler absolutely adored her youngest aunt’s boyfriend. She couldn’t quite manage to pronounce his name, so she called him “Ben-jie.” And now that little blonde is all grown up and her little girl also adores that tall man with the sweet smile. Maybe one day, that dark-haired little girl’s child will feel the very same–although I am not sure “Ben-jie” will still  be able to lift the little one to touch the ceiling .

Our lovely sixteen-year-old H seems very pleased with those Amazon and Target giftcards.

We are all just a bunch of hams.

Hope you all had wonderful Christmases with those near and dear to you.

About fedoralady

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. Lovely, lovely photos, Angie. What great girls, and lucky to have you and Benny in their lives.

    I have only met two people who are impervious to the allure of chocolate. I confess to licking the beaters when I’ve made fudge frosting.

    • Thanks. They are pretty special to us. I am grateful to have them as part of our lives, too. 😀 It’s almost as hard for me to imagine someone not liking chocolate as it is for them to not like RA 😉 Oh, I have licked a beater or two in my time. 😉
