    My cousin just posted a video she made and I thought I would share. When it starts you'll see my son drinking from a white cup, my hubby chowing down and lots of my aunts, uncles and cousins. There's a couple shots of my sister with her daughter (braces) and a couple shots of me standing behind hubby with my arms around his shoulders. There's a good shot of my mom with a Christmas tree background and some of her with her sisters and brothers. Oh, there's one good shot of my sister and her family toward the end.

    Thanks. I think the music and special effects really help bring out the family's Alabama hillbilly roots!

    sisterpine...that was my cousin's wife, Lynne. I really like the scary shot of my Uncle Ivan. He looks so stern (but he isn't).

    When we were kids we always went to my grandparents' house for Christmas Day. When they passed away their place went to my Uncle Ivan. He was the youngest and was already living there. Everyone continued to go there for Christmas and family reunion in June. In my 47 years I have only missed five Christmases there.

    Almost sounds like Emmy Lou but I don't think so -

    That is just lovely! Looks like you had a marvelous Christmas -- and like you have very creative family! The sepiatone, the background music, the whole setting, was just wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Pony!

    Where were the dogs? I thought they were an important part of your family. :)

    Smart dogs, I don't like big crowds either.
