Joyous Holiday Happenings

I love the week in between Christmas and  the New Year.  It is a relaxing week for me.  The girls are at home with their parents and the hustle bustle of Alex's schedule slows a bit with his vacation from school.  I can snuggle in my PJ's and reflect on the past Christmas season.  I had a wonderful Christmas this year spending time with  family and friends.  Christmas Eve is always spent at my parents home.  This year was so special as my whole family could be together.  The weather allowed my sister, Andrea and her family to travel home and my very best friend, Heidi and her family were able to join us as well.  My mom prepared a most delicious dinner.  We ate, laughed, and just enjoyed each other's company.

Christmas day is always spent at my in-laws.  Again how special that everyone was together this year.  Another wonderful dinner, gift exchange, and family time.  Because everyone was all together it seemed the perfect opportunity to take some family photos........

Cousins..............Will, Danielle and Alex
What fun it was on Christmas night to meet the newest member of our family.  Alex's brother, Stephen surprised his wife with a sweet little puppy for Christmas.  You will never guess--the puppy is our Mabel's half sister.  I could not wait until they met each other.  I also could not believe how Mabel has grown comparing her to Hannah.  I think they will be great friends. 

I hope you are all making special Christmas memories with your family as well.  With the snow swirling about tonight I think I will make a nice hot cup of tea, snuggle under a blanket and watch one of the new movies that Santa brought me.  Until next time..............

The pictures are wonderful and reminds me of all the fun we had together all over again. I need copies. (What happen to my picture?) Christmas is a special time of year and to spend it with family makes it full of blessings beyond measure.

Love Mom
