I do love this time of year with all the parties and celebrations.

My diet doesn't but I sure do!!

Saturday we went to our Family Christmas celebration.

39 attended from 85 years of age ...down to 4 years old.

Such a fun time with all the Scandinavian traditions and some wonderful food.

There was a lot of laughter during our White Elephant Gift Exchange.

There is nothing like family being together.

Chatting and catching up on Life.

Special friends and family.

Of course Santa had to make his appearance.

Santa is for the young and Definitely for the Young at Heart.

Gunhild is 85 years young and still going strong.

Celebrating Christmas on Sunday because our oldest Granddaughter was able to be home

from Las Vegas. 

Our other granddaughter has her best friend visiting.

I consider her one of my granddaughters too.

Don't you just love it?

My heart is full.

This must be the highlight of the Christmas season! Such cute pictures. It would be fun if you got a photo album just for these pictures, to compare from year to year.
