Since I posted a photo of my kitchen window on Christmas, all nice and clean, I thought I would post a few "real" Christmas pictures. Just the four of us on Christmas morning. Then we hosted dinner for my brother and family, my Mom, some of our oldest friends, Barb and Mike and family and friend Kathy. Joe's girlfriend, Jena, joined us later as well.
The quintessential "It's too early for picture taking!" pose on Christmas morning. (Don't kill me for this Sadie.)
Joe and Dad enjoying a morning chess game using Joe's chess timer from Santa. (Dad won and Joe is still in a state of shock!) That will teach him to doubt his elder's abilities, tee hee.
What, no room for Manny? Maybe Santa should have brought dog beds. Nah, why bother, they would still use the "people furniture."
O.K. That is more like it!!!
Grandma and grandsons, Dylan and Shane. (BTW Dylan has decided on a career change, instead of working in a Pancake House he wants to be a Naturalist. My SIL feels this could be a great blow to the pancake world.)
Notice the broom and dust mop by the window. Gifts for "little" Joe's new apartment, along with a space heater, some under door draft blockers and new towels. Wow, Christmas at 22 is so practical! That's what you ask Santa for when living in a turn of the century building with 12 foot ceilings.
Black and white photos remind me of all my grandmother's pictures of Christmas past. I just had to play with this one of Sadie and cousin Jake.
Right out of early 60's? Maybe?
Now we are gearing up for our New Years PJ Party and my hub's sister and family's arrival from Chicago tomorrow. Party on!
Hope you had a beautiful Christmas surrounded by loved ones.
Have a relaxing Sunday, P.
