This after Christmas-time. Isn't it the best?
Just being together and being home...I love it.
The holiday was a gift of the best kind.
Slower and so enjoyable, though the flu was at our door.
The kids spent the day outdoors on Christmas Eve.
Warm it was out there.
No fluffy white stuff this year!
Christmas Eve cookies were baked in the little kitchen for Santa's arrival and then we donned our best for a beautiful evening Mass.
Oh, how those old carols make me feel like God is near.
The next morning, a flurry of crackly paper and squeals of joy.
Lovely moments spent slowed together and time enjoying one another.
A roast was cooked and other delicious things for dinner.
But most...most I will remember the laughter.
The smiles of joy around that cozy table with those I hold dearest.
Wishing you a prosperous and lovely New Year. Thank you for visiting time and again here, for your comments and friendship.
It really does mean so much!
Every happiness in 2015.
