Christmas past! Where did my babies go?

I have my scanner working so i thought lets get nostalgic w/old pics!

These pics are before Abby and ken were in our lives...Wow such a long time ago and how my life has changed!

Christmas 1998 Ashley 5,Brad 4 Grant 4months

Christmas 2000 7,6,2 (OMG That's Abby's age now)

Christmas 2002 9,4,8 (I was dating ken for almost a year)..You would never know by the smiles on there faces how hard those first few years had been for us during the divorce..
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.~Helen Keller

That was a fun blast from the past! We watched home movies a couple of weeks ago. There was one from when F was 4 and K was 1 and it was SO hard to watch! I kept saying "Where have my babies gone?"

I love the picture on the beach! Gorgeous!!!

I like looking back over Christmas pasts. It doesn't take them long at all to grow up! That is so not fair.
