Taking A Breather.......


Check out Miss V's snappy new haircut for Christmas!!!

She looked like a wee princess♥️
 




Christmas Day was fabulous!!!

Everyone was happy...

Everyone was merry...

Everyone was full!!!

Miss V was in heaven...

Opened her gifts with great glee!!!

Loved her Christmas cracker!!!

Ate all her Turkey and mashed potatoes!!

And...

The best most exciting news of all...

My son Ryan, proposed to his gal Anna...

And she accepted!!  Looks like a wedding for us in 2016!!! 

                                       *************

It seems I had my camera on the wrong setting all day!!!

Of course...when I am hosting...I don't get to take as many pics as I would like... 

My son was taking pictures...so I hope he got some more of everyone!!

Everything went really well...such a happy day it was!!

I have been struggling with a sinusy throaty thingy...

Not really sure what it is...but I think I will try and see the Dr...

I sure hope you all had a wonderful day...

And enjoyed the company of those that you love...

Have a great week...

                Cheers!   :o)

    I'm glad everything went so well. Such a lot of work, I know.
    Mine was spent in bed, so having Christmas this week with my folks. I did have some nice get-togethers before I was feeling lousy.
    Hope you feel better soon.
    Sooooooo exciting about the wedding! For some reason I thought they were already married. Happy times ahead.

  8. I noticed Miss V's hairdo right off the bat...she is such a pretty little girl! And so precious opening up her gifts with your handsome man!

    Congrats on the engagement of your son and Anna...surely something to look forward to this coming year!!

    It looks like you had a lovely Christmas---it's so hard to be everything and photographer is the hardest.

    Love to you---thanks for being a friend while I wax poetic---a few glasses of wine just last now. Had to make space in the fridge! lol! ;-)

  19. Lots of happy news in this blog! Except for your "throat thingy." I brought home the sniffles from NY last week, not fun. Congrats for the wedding to be. And of course I love Miss V.'s haircut, very trendy. Just made a spinach quiche for lunch here with my niece tomorrow. Hope the drive from T.O. will be okay for her. Take care and feel better, Ms. Linda.
