Holiday Whirlwind

Often the holidays seem a blur with so much fun, decorating, food, activities and social events.  This year was no exception.  We welcomed our sister from Texas for the Christmas celebration, attended a ballet, visited the quaint shopping village of LaHaska, PA, saw the preschool version of the Christmas Story, attended several parties and cooked and baked and trimmed and rearranged and fixed and strung lights and wreaths and candles.  I love decorating my home this time of year more than any other.  

  Here's a brief photo montage, not in chronological order, of my divine family holidays.  Whatever is missing is lost in the hustle, bustle of activity.  
Sewing a Mrs. Santa Claus Christmas apron for my friend, Cheryl.

The prince of all Granddogs - Cobee Obee - on Christmas morning.

Decking the halls - our picture postcard Christmas tree.
A beautiful Christmas bouquet to adorn the table.
Loads of food, family and laughter.
Gorgeous light display at Peddler's Village.
Mother/daughter Sunday afternoon at The Nutcracker and a sushi lunch at the Bistro in Red Bank.  We enjoyed a bottle of wine reminiscent of our trip to Napa last Spring with Cait and Nancy.

Yes, the fun, the sparkle, the magic of the Christmas season is spectacular each year.  The blessings of family and friends fill us with warmth and love.  Just divine.
