And a lovely weekend was had by all. It began with a Saturday morning breakfast, some gift opening, some games, some crafts, and ended with cookies being delivered by a grand and his mom last evening. Perfect!

A happy week to you...

Love Vee

  4. Loved hearing this sweet little boy voice! Looks like y'all had a great time Christmas-ing and making new memories, Vee. Your family is lovely - does your sister or niece or daughter blog? Is your daughter still painting? What did your grandsons get for Christmas? Fun times, new memories, wonderful fellowship with family! Love your pictures and especially your little video!

  5. Lovely pictures of special family time! Love the "Family Quilt" mosaic!
    Like Vickie, I enjoyed hearing your grand's little voice...there's just something so compelling about wee voices, isn't there?

  6. Vee,

    Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday party! I am living vicariously through all you ladies with perfectly appointed homes with all the holiday fanfare. My home is not appointed at all, a partially decorated tree is my only Christmas decor offering, have not finished the last four handmade gifts, a menu and family celebrations is only partially planned, nothing is wrapped and somehow this year none of this bothers me. Christmas will come and it will all get done and I have been enjoying the season. Maybe this is what letting go of the perfect expectations feels like or maybe I am just terribly deluded LOL! Have a great day!

  7. I do believe you've figured out how to use that new camera! I can tell that everyone is quite comfortable when you have the camera in hand.

    Your family get-together looks like such fun. Children always make the gatherings extra-special. I love the mosaics and all the pictures.

  8. Looks like a marvelous time. So glad every one enjoyed the time together.
    Love the photos...taken with the new camera?
    My bunch meets here on Sat. evening, Christmas Eve. I can hardly wait.
    I have a new recipe to try...a side dish for our ham...and today it is rainy and I am about to decorate all those cookies I've made all last week.
    I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR....

  21. Vee,
    What lovely memories you all are making! The pictures are wonderful.
    And our cats are all boys. We always have boy kitties. They have great fun together - playing, wrestling, snuggling and grooming each other.

  25. Oh! How I love your header! Your home evokes coziness - I wish I was there in my fleecy pj's sipping on hot cider!! Thank you for stopping by .... you are so kind!! My life has suddenly become very busy and I'm trying to sort it out - visiting you helps me to take a few moments and breathe! Merry Christmas to you and John. :)

  27. It looks like you had a warm and wonderful family weekend, Vee. You made a perfect mosaic of love. The video says 'not available at this time' for me --I'll try coming back later.

    We are back in NYC and I'm missing my family already. Our visits are never long enough!

  29. How wonderful, your pictures really tell the story. Such a lovely Christmas Vee. Your blog this year, your photographs, your tips on helping us to make our photos better, and of course you sharing your beautiful family with all of us.

    Merry Christmas Vee.

    P.S. I head up to Vermont on Wednesday with the girls and their beaus. We are staying for a few days. Just in case...have a beautiful beautiful Christmas.
