Hey There, Auld Aquaintances! Remember Me?

I'm not sure I can remember how to do this, but it's quiet here, eerily quiet, I have the house to myself, no more excuses. But since I am guilty of blogger friend neglect, can I buy forgiveness by showing you pictures of my excuses?

Here's excuse #1..........





Here's the Bean getting acquainted with # 1.....





Here's excuse #1 with excuses 2 and 3.......





Here are excuses 4,5 and 6.........





Here's The Bean clowning with Lily and excuses 2 and 3......





Here's Excuse #6 with excuse #7...........





Here's the OC with the UK trio, excuses 1, 7 and 5.......





And here's me with excuses #1 and #7.....






Am I forgiven? It was a busy, happy month, which would have been perfect if oldest son and his two excuses could have joined us....But let me be grateful for what we did have. I hope all of you, my bloggy friends, had a happy, peaceful time at Christmas, and that you will all prosper in this new year.

Excellent excuses!

You ARE forgiven -- what a wonderful bunch of excuses! Excuse #1 is adorable -- it hardly seems possible that he could be that big -- you must have been so excited to be able to spend some time with him -- and all your other excuses! Happy New Year Sweet Molly!!!

No need for excuses Molly but they are wonderful photos. Some handsome faces there.

All Best Wishes for 2010. May some of your dreams come true!

Who could not forgive you with all those marvelous excuses at hand! Don't you just love being mother and grandmother? Glad to see you back posting though. Now, please give your sister a giant nudge and we'll all be back in business ;)

It's good to hear from you again and I guess I have to grudgingly forgive you for having 7 powerful excuses. Glad you had a great time with your family. :)

Ah Molly ... such great excuses!

My own are pretty pathetic ...

But I'm working on them!

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

How CUTE!!!! Love the bebe & the family looks wonderful! Isn't that the best way to spend the holidays?

Seems like they were very nice for you, and I am glad of that.

Happy New Year, sweet lady, I hope it brings you so many blessings.

No excuses required. You have a most beautiful family, Molly, and I'm so happy that your Christmas was full of love and good cheer.

Happy New Year to you and the OC, and all of them.

Well, I'm going to be a bit less forgiving than that. But mainly because I'm so jealous of all those excuses. (I have no grandchildren; sigh.) I'm sure they could have spared you for the odd ten minutes.

Oh well, all right. You're forgiven. Your family is indeed remarkably beautiful. However, they're gone now, so...
