Christmas Memories

I wanted to share a couple of my favorite Christmas pictures with you all. My youngest son Brad is a huge Florida Gators fan. His idol is Tim Tebow. Mr Tebow is graduating this year, and so his last college football game will be on New Years day in New Orleans. The Sugar Bowl. My oldest son managed to buy tickets for the two of them to go to the game. He wrapped up the tickets, and honestly when Brad opened them, and realized what they were, he went from speechless to tears. The two of them will leave tomorrow, drive to Dallas, spend the night, and then drive to New Orleans, where they will spend a couple nights before they drive home. The trip is just a bit (okay, a whole lot) over the limit they set for gift exchanging, but Dustin really wanted his brother to be part of Tims last game.Brad was truly blown away by the gift. He is still a little teary eyed in this picture.

I love that my sons are so good to each other. I managed to raise a couple of great guys.

Have a lovely day.

What a special story, Valarie. You definitely raised them well. They are handsome boys, too!

Just thought I'd stop by after seeing your comment at Diane's. You have a neat blog. Don't know how well I do in the glitter department but maybe I will pick up a thing or two! lol!!

Have a wonderful New Years!! :-)
