Holiday Cheer!


What a wonderful , festive Christmas we had this year,
Spending time with friends and family.
~~~
Somewhere I read that
"Friends are the family you choose for yourself".
~~~
We had our good friends over a couple of weeks before
Chrismas for an Italian dinner and gift giving.
~~~
My sister-in-law and husband spent Christmas Eve
and all day Christmas with us. It was so nice to be together.
~~~
My husband kept a fire going all day long. We even had
snow on the ground from earlier in the week.
~~~
Both our sons were with us all day long,
and we met up with my family over the weekend.
~~~
We couldn't ask for anything more. Even our dreams
of a White Christmas came true.
~~~
Happy New Year!!!!!
