Now That It's New Years Eve ...

... Here are a few Christmas Pics

(I know I'm late, and I could do and comment on many more, but time is flying in what promises to be a busy day, so here's a somewhat hurried and incomplete post with apologies to Thesha who got left out here but not on Facebook. Happy New Year!)

For Christmas I remembered my tie and my seasonal suspenders, so I donned a white shirt for Christmas dinner which we had on Christmas Eve. I can't remember when I actually dressed up for Christmas Dinner like this. We actually had two dinners, the second on Christmas Day because there was plenty remaining for a reprise and even for subsequent meals. We're not a large clan, and we do get a pretty big bird because we all enjoy the main meal(s) and the leftovers.



Nikki Dee also got dressed up for the dinner, but as soon as she was put into her red dress, she became very anxious to be whiskered like Santa. The resourceful Cuppa found a way to make it happen for her. What a funny, little girl.



Here she poses with Daddy, who is also Santa-hatted. By some miracle, she condescended to actually look at the camera for a second.



We remained in our comfies for all of the unwrapping on Christmas morn. To me, it looks like Zach is thinking that Daddy should open the presents more carefully in order to recycle.



Cuppa, also in her comfies, did her usual thing by taking scads of pictures. We have a system: she takes 'em and I process 'em. Doesn't seem fair, eh? Actually, I had my camera out and took my fair share. Otherwise, I couldn't have taken this one, huh?

Beautiful pictures. I really like that one of you. And the way Zach is growing just blows my mind. How can that be? Time, the elusive thing.

Happy New Year to you and Cuppa and the whole bunch.

I love the red suspenders.
You are most fortunate to have the wonderful (though small, as you say) family. And two grandkids--sigh, I will keep waiting.

Have a happy happy New Year.

I know the word Suspenders. I do! And I do know what to expect as well. Yet, there was still a tiny part of my brain thinking I would see you in the other type of suspenders!

Love the pictures as usual. Happy 2010 to all of you!

Happy New Year. Lovely pictures from Christmas. I particularly liked Nikki Dee's dress with the white fur around the hem.
