Season's Greetings 2015

This is going to be a picture heavy entry We had a really nice Christmas Eve and Christmas. We spent a few hours at my aunt's house for Christmas Eve, then we were at home for Christmas. Although it was unseasonably warm here in Pennsylvania, 35 degrees above average, it was a nice and peaceful time. Everyone had a great holiday.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It looks like you and your family had a wonderful Christmas eve and Christmas day! I am very happy for you. It looks like everybody gave and received thoughtful gifts. Wesley Bear seems to love the present he received from you his mom. The tree and other decorations looked marvelous. I'm sorry the temperature was 35 degrees above normal, but at least you didn't have to negotiate a dangerous ice storm this year.

    As you can imagine it was miserably warm and humid here in Florida, but a good time was had by all. Cameras were clicking all day long at my family's celebration, too. Most were aimed at our 7 month old grandson as he unwrapped presents and experienced the wonder of his first Christmas.

    Thank you for showing me your holiday highlights, dear friend Jessica Marie. Enjoy your Christmas weekend!

    1. Hi dear friend, Shady!

      I suppose you're right - ice is the worst! I much prefer snow. We did get a rain storm last night and it's 10 degrees cooler today. It's supposed to rain again.

      We did - it was very peaceful and I am thankful for that. Awww, your Christmas sounds like it was wonderful as well. Congratulations on your grandson!

      Have a wonderful Christmas weekend as well, dear friend!
