What fun you all are having! I'm having all the family here for Christmas day and we are having ham, too. My max will be 12 which is a lot less than 20 but my house is pretty small and they will fill it to the brim! Hope you all have a wonderful, loving holiday!


what a fun Christmas season you will have with friends and sweet lil grand babies...you are so lucky..my lil pumpkin is back east with her other grand parents...merry christmas Karla...


Oh my goodness that baby is just beautiful! I know you will all enjoy your holiday at your beautiful cottage. Merry Christmas!

The little baby is so cute (I can't remember the nick name you mentioned). Have a great Christmas party, again!!!


The baby is darling & you are lucky to be close to the girls! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Please say hello to Beth for me. We got a new puppy for Christmas & I hope you'll stop by to see her picture. She's a Havanese. Agnes Rose & Button are so tiny/cute & you guys seemed to have so much fun. We decided to go small too. Merry Christmas & I can't wait to see you at Moulin Rouge. HUGS!


What a beautiful baby! And a blessing that you all can get together and have a joy filled day! Merry Christmas to you and yours. ~ Angela


what a little cutie! it's so great you get along together!

The baby looks so precious and mellow.

Wow! You have a very cool family. It's great that both mom's get along.

You are having so much fun! Why is there such a huge difference in the size of the dogs? I thought the parents were small dogs.



Hi Karla,
Oh what a sweet picture of Mayara. She has beautiful
blue eyes too! It is so nice that you are able to spend
some quality girl time and create wonderful memories.
Agnes Rosebud and her sibling are very cute together and
I hope that you will take a picture of Button with the
group if you can. I really enjoy seeing those yorkies. :)
Christmas Blessings and Hugs,

Ah baby girls, puppies, family dinners I guess Christmas 2010 will be one to remember in the Nathan household, have fun! Mayara is just too cute!


Enjoy your wonderful festivities with your loved ones. I have all boys and although I had no sisters, I was very close to my mom. I am hoping for great DIL's some day. But not too soon, they are still little!

Thanks for all of the smiles,

Oh Karla what beautiful photos! That Baby is certainly the best gift of all!
Merry Christmas Sweet Friend~


I do not know how you do it all Karla! Sounds like a LOT of work!
The baby picture is just adorable, and how lucky for everyone, you, the kids, and the moms that everyone is friends.......life is so much easier and better that way! Lots of people need to take a lesson from that!
So glad you have girls to spend girl time with......nothing better! And I just loved Beths tags! I've used them on all my packages!
Merry Christmas Karla to you and your whole big giant wonderful family!

What a beautiful little treasure! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas spent with the ones your love.


The last picture of the puppy cracked me up...look at her little mouth! It's so distinct, and has just the hint of a smile. Also, it amazes me how much that baby looks like her mother...so does the oldest of her daughter's...I love to see resemblance and you wouldn't necessarily think that mom has such a distinct "look", but after seeing her children, those eyes really comes through, don't they?!
Enjoy your blog SO MUCH! Have a wonderful Christmas!



Awe Sweet baby, there is not a nicer Christmas than one with a brand new 'Littlest Angel'




Merry Merry Christmas! May your stocking be filled with blessings!

Hugs, Carrie

What a Bountiful Holiday you are having! How old is your grand fairy? My third grand fairy is almost four months old and such a joy! Thanks for posting your holiday festivities.


Hi Karla, I just have to agree with Kelly's post above,
that Agnes Rosebud does have a bit of smile when her
picture is taken. : ) Soooooo cute.
Does she mind it when you put her little sweater on?
My furbaby is a Lab senior lady and with the cold weather
affecting her joints, I purchased a wrap with velcro
tie tabs from Land's end and she doesn't like to wear it.
It is easy on and off and looks great.......but, it is
a fight each time I try to get it on. :(
I just don't want her to be cold when she has to go



What a dinner that will be, a bunch of angels, fairies & pups! I love it! Also love that you won't be a slave to the stove. I've been buried in Christmas craziness but didn't want to miss out on wishing you a very Merry Christmas! Getting to know you & becoming friends was a highlight of 2010, can't wait to see what mischief we'll get into in 2011. Lisa


Hello Karla ...great pics...lovely extended family....shows what agreat Mom you are...I dont know if I missed something in my travels...I dont see our Bookie buddy...is he still here?....have a great Christmas with your family...Lorraine


How fun! Girls Night Out is a treat for any woman. I'm so glad you all had a good time.

And do those box tags really say "Paragon Glass Work"? They caught my eye because I'm a 'little' fan of Paragon Studios, creators of City Of Heroes.

Anyway! Thank you for sharing and hope you have a delightful Christmas diner with the 21 humans plus puppies. ;->
