The Twelve Photos of Christmas

... and a few more.  I started with the Twelve photos of Christmas.  Which is pretty good considering the hundreds we took between the 23rd and the 25th.  In  reality I could only narrow it down to 16 of our top memories from this year's celebration.  And as we've discussed before... this is my blog, after all, so I can break the rules.

400 Truffles

Gifts of Praise

Waiting for sunset so Christmas can begin

Carmella's first Christmas

A surprise guest

Dancing after dinner

New Pajamas

A practical joke

The soft glow

Did you really just drop and ice cube down my back?

All that fuss for a sweater?

Oh, and a kindle!

Loving my girl

A caroling party

Christmas looks best in sepia

It sure is a Wonderful Life!

Hoping you all had the merriest of Christmas surrounded by the warmth and love of kith and kin.  For us Christmas started in the midst of baking and wrapping when we got a surprise visit from Aunt Dawn.  It continued on with all the magic and merriment that only Christmas can bring.  Great food, great fun, great friends.

May the spirit of the season follow you through the new year until our dear old friend comes again.
