Christmas Joy






Distilling the moments...

Little Miss A handing out the presents. If someone said, "I wonder what's in this package?" she put her face close to and said, "it's a surprise!" 

Grandpa dancing with the Little Misses. 

Little Miss S snuggling with her auntie.

Laughter. Together. Glowing fire. Thoughtful gifts. Sparkling lights. Red dresses. Dinner while the little ones napped. Hugs. Cuddles. A late afternoon walk. So much joy. 

Eagle eyes may note that next year there will be another little one to love. Little Miss A's sibling is expected to arrive in mid-February. More joy!

Christmas is so much more fun with little ones, but alas there are no grandchildren for us yet.

It looks like your family had a wonderful time together.

Beautiful memories of your family's 2013 Christmas............and how lovely there's going to be another little darling in the photos next year!

Now onward to a New Year - may it be full of blessings for you all.

We're off now to collect our Jasmin from her driving instruction class - she's now doing the highways and byways which is scaring me silly!

Hugs dear Lorrie - Mary

What great shots of your family Christmas! Congrats on the exciting news of a new little grandbaby arriving soon! Melissa is anticipating Jan 2 for the arrival of baby boy Davies! They are all very excited ! I get to take the day off and spend it with Corban and Keegan before we get to go up and meet this new little one!
