Howie's parents.

Poppa and Grandma with their baby.

Surrounded by love.

Adjusted Christmas Eve on the 26th.

Christmas Eve dinner-by-the-fire-feast.

It's a tradition ~ we like to watch an old classic film by the fire.
(This year's pick was "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart.)

She was surprised.  A trilogy to read.

Oh Camille,this was surely one of my favorite of your quotation posts.
Thank you for sharing the beauty of your home and family and it is beautiful.
The delight on your dear Emma's face is priceless. Such joy!
May the New Year bring you even closer to our Precious Lord as you continue to walk faithfully with Him.
It has been a joy following along with you this past year and I look forward to this New Year ahead.

Good bless you, sweet lady~~
