The decorations are packed away and the vacuuming is done. The house looks like nothing ever happened but I have photographic proof that there was a hullabaloo here on Dogwood Lane.
We consumed an amazing amount of delicious food. Because we're a multi-ethnic family we have all kinds of wonderful, authentic treats from all parts of the globe as part of our holiday celebrations.
Here I am with my 'girls' the fabulous DIL on Christmas Eve. I am truly blessed to have these women in my family.
The day after Christmas was family picture day and everyone dressed up for the occasion. believe it or not this was the best grand kid photo I got!
Our three sons managed to hold it together for a group shot.
The little girls took a walk in the forest together, so sweet. 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 are great ages. We received a fantastic Christmas gift with news that a new baby girl will be joining the family this June! I could not have asked for anything better. Such blessings are truly treasured.
I had the worst cold the entire time the family was here but I managed to stay out of bed and have fun. Since they left I've been draggin' my wagon but now I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. I'm looking forward to a great new year and I hope you all are too.
Until next time,
