SFC in the Magnolia State

We spent New Years Day with our Daddy at his home in north Mississippi for S Family Christmas (Julie calls it SFC and I sort of like it, so we will shorten it to that when typing. Our maiden name starts with an “S” but we refrain from typing out last names on our blog)

Daddy’s first picture with all 5 of his grandchildren. He was pretty smitten with all of them being in his house and the smile on his face speaks for itself. These children are loved so much by all their grandparents and are in turn a tad bit spoiled, but that is okay I reckon.

Connie is Daddy’s wife and she is just as smitten with the children as Daddy is. Henry is the first of our children that she has known as a baby, so she is really enjoying having a baby to love on.

Henry with his Grandaddy. Henry has no idea how silly and fun his Grandaddy is but will soon enough. I can only imagine the tales he will tell of his visits with this man.

Juju FINALLY got to hold her boy again. The look on her face and the look on his face speak for themselves. I think of that song,”Reunited And It Feels So Good” when I look at this picture. She kept trying to get him to look at her and say “Mama”. Hello…I am the Mama.

Anna and Her Mama love a baby, especially Henry. He will never have to touch the floor with Juju and the Fab Four around.

Aunt Abby and our Princess Anna. She still reigns and I know she is most happy about that. She is the prettiest little girl with the funniest personality. I am so glad we have her in the mix with our crew of boys.

Ashley ( Connie’s daughter) is pretty smitten with Henry. We love Ashley. She is so cute and funny.

Wilma and Charles’ girls. Yep, we are the S threesome. We are a special little group and will be tight even when we are old and gray. Meemaw and Peepaw must look down from heaven each year when we take this picture and beam from ear to ear.

The S girls with their husbands. They both had husbands WAY before me. They are much, much older than me -ha. I am the baby of the group. Meemaw used to feel sorry for me and buy me stuff and her excuse was that I did not have a husband to buy things for me and when I got one she would stop buying extra things for me. The Lord took her home before that cord was cut. (I promise she would laugh at this…so it is okay to laugh…it is funny)

The S girls with their families. Who would have ever thought we three would be in a picture with our “families”! I am so glad I could arrange for this picture to finally happen. I finally had my baby after years of Christmases saying “Next year I will have a baby at Christmas”. Juju is so glad she will not have to hear that ever again. It got on her nerves.

My first baby boy is getting so big. I was 18 when he was born and thought being an aunt made me super cool and I secretly still think it does!
Samuel and Henry. Our oldest and youngest together. I love how gentle Samuel is with Henry and how his face beamed with pride when he met him for the first time on this day. I look forward to Henry looking up to Samuel as a role model.

David holding Henry for the first time. He is the oldest of the twins. When he was a baby he looked like me. I love that about him because my baby boy looks nothing like me. I am glad my sister had a baby that looked like me. Henry will love learning historical and war facts from this little book worm.
Daniel holding Henry for the first time. He is the youngest of the twins. His little smile melts my heart. He is his mother’s child. Henry will love learning how to color in the lines and be creative from this talented boy.
Anna’s smile says it all. She is elated to be holding her baby cousin for the first time. It is a real live baby doll! Henry has no idea what is ahead of him with this sweet girl in the mix.

I love this. The first picture of the Fab Five. Daniel had an injury from playing outside and was trying his best to hold back the tears for the photo. What a sport!

Enough Said….and look at her smile.

Enough said….and look at his smile. His new grilling apron with his grandkids names on it.
Uncle Joe and Randall having a fun time at SFC.

These special girls came to visit us at Daddy’s so they could see Henry. We always love a good laugh and hug from them.

Henry was out like a light at the end of the day. He was kissed, hugged, held, and fussed plum out. We had a great SFC and can’t wait to see all of them again real soon.

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
