Embrace Christmas Memories

Time with family is memorable, indeed
We’re grateful for the ones who embrace the holiday mood
We’re blessed to have them open their home
And share their love and delicious food.

Our daughter, De, in Switzerland
shared photos of their beautiful meal
Imagine how plates like these
enchant your guests (think how they feel)!

The family in far-off Europe
included our grandsons with our De
I’m grateful for the internet
and the pictures she shared with me.

Nick, De, Mike & Chris

Here in California
Eleven of us gathered round –
add two big, rambunctious dogs
and laugh as kids and animals clowned.

Christmas Day was a time for fun
with love and gifts exchanged
Friends shared photos of their day
Our family did, too … we got arranged!

Thank you, Ty & Monika
for your gracious hospitality –
we’re blessed to have our son & spouse
share their life & love with Bob & me.

I pray your day was blessed
and you celebrated Christ’s birth
with those you love gathered round –
good food, warm hugs, and lots of mirth!

A note for this day-after-Christmas-morning: Faith (our granddaughter) and Kyle were headed home to S.Lake Tahoe last night and about 3 hours later had to turn around and come back to Placerville. The road ahead was closed due to heavy snow and lots of accidents ahead. The good news is that they were not involved in one of them… and we’re all safe and sound… feeling blessed!

Merry Christmas!
Bee 🐝 well!
Bee blessed!

Keep the Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love in your heart year-round! May Jesus remain alive in you!

See ya tomorrow (God willing) –

    I just love the staircase photo. I’m so glad you are all able to be together for Christmas. Love you!

    • I’m glad we were able to be together, too… and that you were surrounded by your loved ones, also. Merry Christmas, Lainalainalaina!! <3

  2. What a wonderful family gathering.

  3. Great to see the family even at such a distance. XX

    • It’s quite the gang, isn’t it? DeAna and her crew are missing here, of course. With them, it would have been 8 more!!

  4. Awesome pictures Jan! It looks like everyone had a wonderful time – dogs included! Blessings! ♥♥

  5. Jan, thanks for sharing photos of your Christmas celebration. Embracing family and love will always be a few of the memories we share.
