In Honor of You, Mama...Merry Christmas

Christmas this year was held at my mom's in Kansas. I don't remember if we've ever done this was a very memorable day. All my siblings and their families showed up (about 20 people). Though we only spent a day there, I will never forget how happy my mother was to have all of us together, at one time, in her home. (click on photos to see full-screen view!)

Stay with us now papa Wahalla, the fun's about to begin!
There ya go, Mom. Give him something to do!
Oh my - desperate to find hidden goodies in grandma's cellar.
Yup - throwing the tinsil on is how we use to do it too :)
Hey, D, thx for bringing your friend, Mr. Light. You know how he always brings us together.
Adorable new add'n to the Zimmer family.
Newly engaged! Congrats :)
You look good with a girl, Missie!

Papa W. thinks he's really funny!
Woah - Look how tall you're getting!
Uh huh. We all know what's in that nog.

Priceless - my ma, M&M's pa!

Santa's tired. Guess it's time to go. We decorated the tree, had a great meal, exchanged gifts, shared the love of family, lots of beautiful music, and even some tears too.

....And when it was all over, in honor of our hostess, on this special day, M&M and I dedicated this song:

Mama by Il Divo

Mama, thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
For the times I forgot
Mama remember all my life
You showed me love, you sacrificed
Think of those young and early days
How I've changed along the way [along the way]
And I know you believed
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
And I miss you, yeah I miss you
Mama forgive the times you cried
Forgive me for not making right
All of the storms I may have caused
And I've been wrong, Dry your eyes [dry your eyes]
Cause I know you believed
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
And I miss you, I miss you
Mama I hope this makes you smile
I hope you're happy with my life
At peace with every choice I made
How I've changed along the way [along the way]
Cause I know you believed in all of my dreams
And I owe it all to you, Mama

Wishing you a very merry Christmas everyone!
