Blessed Joyful Celebrations...
As Christmas approaches I am truly savoring the magic of it all. I adore this vintage image courtesy of The Graphics Fairy. Thank you Graphics Fairy for always sharing so generously.
This year Mr. C and I are not actively participating in Christmas decorations and events. This photo is of last year at my daughter's home. Mr. C was quite the trooper and he earned this year "off". I am so thankful for being able to celebrate with my family. This year I mailed and it is just not the same.
I was so happy to wear my Christmas apron sewn and gifted to me from my older sister. Peeling potatoes for dinner is always something I enjoy. My daughter at the stove behind me puts on an epic meal that leaves no one hungry. She opens her home to family and friends and those that have no where else to be. I am so proud of her!
Here the gang is getting ready to attack the meal. Of course no one should be hungry for all the snacks and appetizers and treats available all day long.
This was surreal to spend Christmas morning in the sunshine filled desert before going to my daughter's also in Southern California where the sunshine continued. This year we are home here in Northern California with very grey skies and lots of rain we desperately need.
Being the car "lover" that I am I think Santa would be styling in this awesome red sleigh.
I know this post is rather random. I am trying my very best to celebrate this Christmas season with Joy. May you and yours be gathering together to make memories and spend quality time celebrating all the magic that surrounds us all. I thank each of you for sharing your beautiful decor and creations. I am very grateful for blogging and the link to friends and traditions across this great world we live in. Today I ventured out to run some errands. I was so thankful when I was able to return home unscathed from all the crowds and traffic. What was I thinking?!! Stay safe and well my friends.
Merry Christmas Blessings with Peace and Health and Joy for all of 2015...
