Holiday Fun

Our Christmas Holiday started with a pollyanna at my sister's house, which is just an afternoon of laughs. Santa surprised us as he arrived in the neighborhood on a fire truck, making my day and that of all the little guys and gals who were at the party.

I failed to get a group shot of my family at that party ( I know..I know..)
that is why there is no photographic proof here of that day, but believe me, it was a great kick off to our holiday season.

Below are various images of our holiday.



This guy keeping an eye on our Christmas is my Dad.
Why he is hanging in my tree and the tree of my siblings is a long story that is worthy of it's own blog post some day. Suffice is to say, my Dad was quite the character.









A Christmas brunch, after a Christmas Eve meal and before a Christmas Day supper.
I AM SO FULL.





I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
I sure did.

Are you still eating left-overs? I'm late in reading this, but you probably have left overs like I still do. You have a beautiful family, Mark. Love that dog in the background too. Those dogs always manage to get in the picture somehow, don't they. Is that another tree to plant outside.

Isn't it wonderful how all holiday kitchens and tables look the same, but at the same time are all different in a thousand ways that only the people who love each other and gather there can recognize at once... Everything about your Christmas scene is comforting and joyful. Congratulations!

I'd say the whole family is pretty AWESOME! How's that new lens doing?
