Christmas weekend dawned clear with snowshowers forecasted for Christmas day.
With C's parents and siblings, we visited a local Alzheimer's home and sang Christmas carols to the residents on Christmas Eve.
The patients were so dear singing along and eager to hold the hands of the children and talk about their own grands and great-grands!
We attended a beautiful candlelit Christmas Eve service before enjoying dinner at a Japanese Steak house together as a family. Then it was cake at Grandma's house to celebrate Jesus' Birthday with the cousins!
Christmas morning in the pajamas Santa left the night before.
....Britain and Izzy got a huge pink gift bag that contained.....
A kitten with a big pink bow around her neck!! Britain's reaction was priceless!
"I cant believe my wish came true!"
Dont you think we need a little more excitement at our house?
(What was I thinking??)
Punkin' Pie has found a very happy and affectionate home with us!
Sweet Tristan used his own hard earned money to buy silly string for all his sisters and his cousins. After lunch on Christmas, we had a war in Grandpa's backyard.
Absolute delighted mayhem!
My girls and cousin Savvy in the Indian princess outfits Grandma gifted them.
And to polish off a perfect weekend, we had the first "White Christmas" that I remember in my lifetime!
I was clearly very content to spend the entire weekend behind the camera. When it comes to snow, Im happy to snap a few pictures and then be the one inside keeping the fire going and making the hot chocolate and soup!
