Random shots taken at Christmas

As always we went out for Christmas dinner. This year there were six of us, too many for the usual, more sedate dining room that we usually go to. We were in the same hotel, though, and it was excellent ... from food to atmosphere.
It was brilliant getting together with our family. 

A bit of a fuzzy picture but you can see how crowded it was!
This little tot just had to bring his new aeroplane.
Santa popped in at high speed. I was lucky to get a shot of his back!
Table decoration ... very decorative, and high enough not to obscure people as they talked
The food was excellent!
Two days earlier it was our Wedding Anniversary. This is what I found when I woke

Joe had arranged the card and picture ready for me to see when I got up
And this was taken on Boxing Day morning. While the rest of the county had snow we had a mere half-and-half.
However, it was cold enough for me to forgive the squirrels for trying and succeeding in getting some food.


  1. How wonderful to go out for Christmas Dinner. Enjoyed the photos of your day and belated Happy Anniversary. I would also like to wish you and Joe A Very Happy New Year!

  6. Happy Anniversary! Brilliant idea to assemble the family at a hotel. And how wonderful is it that you could be together with a part of them. This has to be a monumental kind of anniversary....he and you have survived a very difficult time, coming through it even stronger and more committed. It's been a privilege to be allowed to send healing thoughts and prayers during it all, and we're so very grateful for the results. Praters are still being said and you both remain in our thoughts for continued blessings and healing.

    Give the lucky groom a hug from all of us.
    He done good digging up the photo to go with that card! ;-)

  7. What a nice post. Full of love and happiness. I hope your anniversary was wonderful.
