Looks like you had a wonderful family Christmas, and I know Tyler will have thought of you as much as you thought of him!

Of course Annabel understands - she may not have speech, but you have told us before how well you and she communicate!

I love that Tyler was present in the family photos. What a beautiful family you are!! :)

I have to comment Cathy on your parents names. My son calls my mom Meemaw, and my dad Bumpa! When he is being grumpy, we call him Grumpa instead! LOL Too funny that you have the same names. :)

Cathy,
All the holiday pics are fabulous! Everyone looks so happy and healthy. Your twins are such beautiful girls. You are doubly blessed with them, as well as all your other children. Glad to see that Annabel enjoyed herself.

We wish you the very best in the new year!

love,
Holly & Morgan
