What a Great Holiday !

I’ve been traveling down to Georgia from Michigan since I was a child. My dad is from Georgia, my mom is from Tennessee. 2007 was the first time in my life I’d ever spent a Christmas holiday with my Georgia relatives. We had good times, good laughs and rich food.

Here is a picture of my favorite Aunt Velma (she is always the hostess with the mostest). She is the matriarch on my dad’s side of the family and still a diva. She does and has always stood by me through thick and thin. I love this woman. Incidently, she loves the scarf I made her and has put in a request for a black scarf.

Above, she is with her man Sam. He is soft spoken, personable and sweet.

This is my daughter Fatima. It's the first holiday she has spent with our Georgia relatives.

Here is my little cousin Ron Sailor Jr. and wife Tangie of almost 1.5 years. Another sweet and cute couple. She is 6 months pregnant in this picture and Ron Sailor III is due to make his appearance some time in March !!!

This is Ron's mom, Velma's daughter and my first cousin Sharion. Since we were little she has always been a person of great calm and strength. Another supporter of me.

There were kiddies all through the house and guests dropping in all throughout the day, it was a great time.
