Memories that hold a special place in my heart this Christmas...
 
 
A "white Christmas Eve".  When we went to leave my brother and sister-in-law's home on the evening of the 24th, snow was softly falling and everything was covered. 
The evening was still and quiet, and the beauty of it all, was magical. 
 


The amateur attempt to copy an idea on Pinterest that actually worked, and the successful feeling that went with it.  Never mind that the white powder on the doughnut holes, did not stay on.  The used Starbuck bottles worked perfectly for the milk and doughnut snowmen.  Thank you Pinterest for the "snowmen" memories.


 
 
All the unexpected captured moments, when cousins spent learning to know each other better.
It was so special to see them showing their love for each other, and creating memories for me.
 
 
 
 
The doses of humor that were intertwined throughout our days together.
This little guy was thrilled with his new "magic tricks" gift.
I will never forget his heartfelt laughter, and the adults who made it all possible.
 
 
 
When one realizes, without a doubt, that the gift choice one made, was a huge hit.
Thank you "Thomas". 
 

 
 
Yes, the treasured memories will remain in my heart for a long time.
This picture brings a smile, every time I see it.  Curlers for the first time, and she was so happy.
 
Oh, how I hope you hold some treasured memories in your heart too, of the Christmas holiday.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Judy, Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. Merry Christmas to you and your family, and many blessings to all of you in the coming year ♥ Charli is doing well. We have had a lovely Christmas. I made the grands the hot chocolate you posted last year with the addition of some malt and everyone just loved it. We did a version of the Elf on the Shelf where we delivered daily stocking stuffers. Our grands loved hearing of the antics the elf, they named Jake, did over at our house. He and Charli got into all kinds of trouble together LOL I follow your blog on a regular basis and enjoy all of your wonderful posts. You are truly an inspiration!

I love all of your photos. It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas spent with your loved ones.
I love your snowmen bottles. I tried to make strawberry Santas from Pinterest on Christmas morning and they did not turn out. They gave us a good laugh though.
