the good

the chair in the kitchen

a study of three pears 

and always the light

the fun 

We had a lot of fun over Christmas!

Christmas Eve we went to Joe's aunt's house to be with his family.

She is a Christmas Eve hostess extraordinaire!
Hannah, Bonnie and Dan were here on Christmas day

Joe made his famous lasagne

and we exchanged gifts in a quiet way

I liked that

The day after Christmas we had 17 people in the house...

things were a bit less quiet.

We had lots of great food, exchanged gifts, 

and enjoyed the company of friends and family.
