Christmas Moments …

Standard

Scrooge took a hiatus from my consciousness and Christmas spirit took a hold, albeit a brief and tenuous hold …. all with the aid of a host of family get-togethers ……. Webb/Cullen/McMechan/Hawkes/Overmann potluck and gift exchange, Susan’s church Christmas service, where a talented Michael and Andrew entertained with melodic guitar music, a special Christmas Eve dinner with Brian and Tim, breakfast at the junior Overmann’s, where Brian cooked our traditional Christmas morning Finnish pancakes …. followed by a small Christmas dinner at our home with my sister Marg, Brad, Jen and Jordan and good friends Arlene and Berendt, joining Brian, Tim and I …. all good pleasant heartwarming times ….. pictorial follows …. words fail me … still figuring out these new dynamics of family Christmas since Sarah’s marriage … I had a dream once, that when my children marry, my family would grow and that family celebrations such as Christmas would be full of new extended family … hmmm …. reality intervened ….. I adjust easily (well, okay, not sooo easily, but I am getting there 🙂 Much to be grateful for as a new year makes it’s appearance ……
