Warm memories, what a special season. Have a good week.
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!
Merry Christmas Vee!
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?
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!
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.
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....xo bj
Happy Christmas week Vee. This has been a challenging year for you and for me. We can all give thanks knowing that we made it with our faith intact and a better understanding of life. Thanks for sharing your loving time with family and your photos are better and better all the time. All the blessings dear blogger sista.QMM

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.
Your new camera is capturing all the wonderfulness of Christmastime. Love the one of your tree. Have a great week in the lead up to the big day.
Wonderful photos of your family gathering! The furbaby is draped over my arms, so I'll leave you with a Merry Christmas!

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. :)
What joy to be surrounded by loving family! You are truly blessed and enjoying every moment! God is so very GOOD!Audrey
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!
Sigh... It sounds like you had such a lovely weekend. Your photos are great. I just loved your Sunday post too ♥ I hope you have a wonderful week.

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.KarenP.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.
