Holiday Season

Christmas time was filled with family, friends, and parties. This is my favorite time of the year.

Here I am at one of the Christmas parties standing in the entryway. Of course, Santa welcomes me.

In this picture I am standing by an upside-down Christmas tree.

This is such beautiful decorations. Yet, I look at the lighted candles and the surrounding evergreen branches and wonder how safe it is!

Another party, but one that my friend Dorie and I catered for Dorie's son-in-law.

Christmas morning arrives and we open our presents. Dick opens one addressed to "Dick & Liz" and gets this towel. Just what he's always wanted.

Later on Christmas day, my son Rick gives me a ride on his snowmobile around our lake.

Two of my grandchildren, Raisa and Brenden, were with us for Christmas.

Beginning of the Christmas Season

The 2008 Christmas season is here and I'm in the process of decorating the house.

The Christmas tree is up and decorated. Also, the windows have been outlined with lights.

Here is my center piece that I've placed on the dinning room table.

This is the decoration on the "coffee table" in the living room.

At the top of the staircase are the two gingerbread dolls that welcome visitors to our house.

Here are the decorations at the front of the house.

Part of the holidays for us is attending shows. Dick and I went, along with Don & Judy, to the Bobby Vee Christmas concert. Here is Bobby and I posing for a picture. Because we are in our mid-sixties, our eyes are not as good as they used to be. That is probably why this picture is a bit fuzzy.
