Christmas morning dawned, beautiful and promising.
The view through my kitchen window.
The gift for our family gift exchange was wrapped and ready. This year we participated in a puzzle exchange.
What a blessed time we had to be able to focus on each family opening their gift! No rushing through presents, not being able to see someone open that gift I thoughtfully chose. Everyone shared in the laughter and mirth.
I had this puzzle made from a photo I took of them tubing last winter.
My (goofy) dad tries on his new bike helmet (a special gift from Mom).
Dad's gift to Mom--an artist's rendition of the church near their vacation home.
Time for our homemade Italian Christmas feast!
Back to life,
