We were invited to come to the "near house" for Christmas 2012.
It was meant to be on the 25th but a tummy bug visited and the festivities were delayed by one day.
we were greeted by the three sitting in their frame.
When were sent this photo in the mail it took me about three days to realize they were not holding a word in another language!
So beautiful...so beautiful!
They had recently removed some trees from their backyard and the beautiful birch logs came in handy for decorations around the house.
My place setting....
A typical view from the other side of the room....
while we are waiting for the rest of the family to come.
Watching their Daddy open a present.
I loved how he knew to keep his chin down to pin the PJ top.
The girls all found a set of twins under the tree!
Busy little mothers.
I couldn't resist the princess PJ's for the girls...complete skirt.
Every mother longs for a proper bed for her twins.
This little mother couldn't wait to tuck them in.
The two older cousins stood by the tree chatting.
The baby...played with the tissue.
We had a lovely Christmas.
I am thankful.
All for now...
