Christmas 2012


Twas the night before Christmas..and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse..

The table was set, dinner for 10..


..the presents were place under the tree..


..and even  more  gifts under the tree next door..


awaiting the reveal tomorrow afternoon..

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.


The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads…

gone are the Christmas Eve’s filled the anticipation of the wide eyed little girl..awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus..

..strange how life changes as we all get older..

A quiet Christmas morning with just the two of us and the ‘furkids’..


..a few token gifts for Tucker..


 ..and not to be forgotten the kitty, Oliver  got some new toys,  too..


 ..Doug’s new fishing gear..


..and my pile of gifts, including a new Ipad!


..Christmas morning breakfast..


..Tucker waiting for his walk at the park..


..the afternoon was spent getting ready for dinner..turkey in the oven and we sat back and waited for  Carlie to come home…


..more gifts to new Dell Laptop Computer for our lovely daughter.. the time we finished, the turkey was cooked..a mangled mess and most certainly not “Martha Stewart” perfect..

..the dinner guests started to arrive just after 4..


Carlie and her boyfriend, Aaron 5:30 dinner was ready and we  were all sitting down to eat..


..all in all dinner was a success and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves..the wine flowed as did the ‘White Christmas Martini’s’.. as Christmas 2012 ends we are most thankful for being able to spend the day surrounded by family and good food and great company!
