Christmas Eve

I wanted to share some happy moments from this Christmas Eve.  Wishing you much love and joy with your family.  No matter what the expectations are, the day is about love and caring, just as I would like every day to be.  Let's make it so.
Waiting for the parents to arrive. 

The tree and a few presents for each of us. 

C.'s mom looking cheerful.  She seemed to enjoy it all! 
Pop opening his gifts. 

The dining room ready for lunch.  

Brad and Jessica sharing a kiss under the mistletoe.  They are such a great couple! They have a wonderful sense of humor and take such good care of C.'s parents. 
Brad modeling a nightshirt that Mom got as a gift.  
Jessica modeling some new workout clothes that we gave Pop.  
We were so glad that the parents and Brad and Jess made it over.  It was the only present that we wanted.

From us to you--wishing you peace and love this Christmas and may every day be filled with those most important of gifts.

    Christmas Bells
    by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I heard the bells on Christmas Day
    Their old, familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet
    The words repeat
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
