Renee, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful family pictures with us. I'm alone right now, at whole family is away - my youngest is actually not leaving for San Diego till 8PM tomorrow but he went out awhile ago with his buddies for a few drinks. They did invite Mom up for a nice shot of very good Reposado Tequila with them before the left!

Merry Christmas!

Julie said...

all these hoots and hollers on renee's blog just because she posted a picture of herself!!!

Mim said...

Much merriment sent to you from down in sunny florida - I hope you have a wonderful day and gosh, these pictures are gorgeous!

Ces said...

Oooh Renee you are the perfect picture of kindness!!! You are so pretty pretty pretty beautiful. You look exactly the kind person that you are and your daughters are beautiful and my twin Josephine is just adorable.

I am so glad to see that smile in your face, albeit it masks the underlying pain but for now it's Christmas and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

(P.S) I am sick in bed. I thought it may just be a bad cold last night but I am now febrile since last night. I have Christmas dinner guests coming this afternoon! Eeek!

Again, so happy to see your lovely face. Thank you for this gift. I can now imagine you when you say "Honest to God Ces,,,"

Did Taylor give you a hug for me?

studio lolo said...

Seeing you made my day!! Seeing smiling Nathan made me cry but I know he's okay.

Blessings to you and your family.
You are all beautiful examples of love.

Merry Christmas Raven Sister.

What a serene smile you have Dear Renee. It's nice to put a face to the name now. It paints a whole new picture to the term "Friend". And what a marvelous family you have surrounding you. I have little doubt that the love within your home makes the Season of Christmas all the much Merrier. Bless you and your family on this Christmas morning.

Silke said...

Oh, wow, Renee, what a gorgeous family you have!! Although I am a little freaked here - I have imagined you in my mind as I send you love and healing and the image I had of you is almost exactly what you really look like, except your eyes are even more kind and loving and your hair a little more silver (like mine). You are GORGEOUS!!! And it's good to see you smile! Sending you lots of love and peace this Christmas! Love, Silke

Sarah said...

Hi Renee,
So glad that Coco arrived-fashionably late as always! Glad you love each other! xx

Pattee said...

Oh My Renee what a beautiful family you have... those children are just beautiful and innocent...

I love having a picture of you in my head... I can see you in there now : )

I have coffee and tea... baileys and cream, hot chocolate.... What ever you want I have it...

Those could be our own trailers. You, Sonia and I snuggled up warm and toasty. Going to Sonia's to borrow eggs, going to yours borrowing milk... and you both coming over to mine for shortbread cookies and tea (ok coffee for Sonia!)

I just Love you to pieces....
xoxoxo Pattee

Eleonora said...

kj is right, you have just given us the best Christmas present ever. Today, after months of being your friend, loving you, suffering for your pains and losses, laughing at your terrific humor... today I see your face for the first time. And it makes me weep with happiness.

The house is quiet. My son sleeps in his bed (we have conquered bed-independence after almost 4 years of co-sleeping) and the Christmas lights glow in the dark living room. A silent night, as the carol goes.

To make it a holier one, I'm going to pour myself a glass of wine now and toast to you, Wahid, your stunning family and that gorgeous little tike.

Renee Love:
Such beautiful pictures. They showcase the love of family. So very precious. My day was also filled with love of a loving chaotic family celebration. Not only is christmas special, every day, every moment is as equally precious.
From my family to yours- Peace, Love, Faith, and many more beautiful moments.

Loving you always

Baino said...

Renee thank you for sharing your photos. I"m not sure I wanted a face to go with the name but now you've put it up here. I'm very happy that you did. Nice to see you smiling. And what a lovely face it is. You're giving me the strength to go grey! (not really). Wahid is exactly as I imagined him. Truly!

You have a beautiful family. . .and that baby! Oh stop it. I'm not a fan of babies but you keep doing that and I'll be putting my hand up to be a granny!

LDWatkins said...

It's wonderful to put more faces to names Renee. I'm sure I don't need to say it, but dang you have a beautiful/handsome family, and that Domenic - oh my what a beautiful baby he is!! Sweet Josephine is just the perfect doll :)

Maggie May said...

You look as though you have a lovely family.
Sorry to hear of your bad times with cancer. it is difficult to stay cheerful when in pain.
Thank you for contacting me.
I am on Taxol and Carboplatin and my main problem is terrible pain in my joints.... back & lower legs.
Because of Christmas I cannot get in touch with a doctor till Tuesday and the hospital line I was given are not picking up.
I know that I can't just take any pain killers with this chemo and paracetamol just doesn't touch the pain.
Thanks for your concern.

Nuts in May

Was surfing Blogland and discovered your blog. What a beautiful family. Many Christmas blessings to you and yours.

yoborobo said...

Renee - I had to come back by and admire your family some more. I am IN LOVE with those grandkids of yours. I could sit and look at those pictures all day long! :) And Nathan is such a handsome guy, and he has the kindest smile. Your daughters are just stunning. Wahid must have had to beat back the suitors! haha! But it's everyone's eyes that I love to look at. There is such warmth there. Much love to you and your lovely family. xoxoxo Pam

YayaOrchid said...

What a gorgeous family!! Renee, you are absolutely stunning my friend! I have to thank you for sharing those photos with us your readers. I know how hard it is to 'come out'- and you feel so vulnerable. But somehow putting a face to our bloggie friends helps to really make a friendship connection, imho.

Your whole family is beautiful, but I gotta say, that little girl is absolutely ADORABALE! Maybe because I never had daughters, but she just tugs at my heart strings! May the Lord bless you ALL in the coming year!

And since I can now see you, I thought maybe it would only be fair if I change my avatar so you can see me .... a very small me but even so. I hope you are free from the bats and enjoying the holidays. xx Jos

Wishing you a merry christmas and a happy new year from the road. We are currently making a trip to visit my husband's family. Eddie's father is one of 13 brothers and sisters, too.
