::imagining a warm, sunshiny Christmas:::

And finding it difficult, looking out my window at the gray, rainy skies.

Your daughters are adorable.

I would so give up a white christmas for one where we could do dinner outside in the sun.

Looks like you had a great day.

A merry X-mas to you as I sit in my NYC apartment shivering from blizzard conditions. Love the pics.

I love seeing everyone's pictures of their Christmas celebrations! Still...a bit weird to see a swimming pool and outdoor tables at Christmastime. :-P

Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad it was a good one for you!
