Christmas Eve 2017

Christmas Eve Breakfast with my brother Ricky and his whole family this morning.  We all were in our pjs and chowed down to a breakfast feast!  Then came the frenzy of gifts being opened and kids squealing with delight.  Next it was on to our house for the annual cookie making  and singing carols.
Wow, only noon and way more to go.

I told Rick today these holidays are not for the faint of heart.  There is bittersweetness though, the memories of those who are no longer with us, those who can't be with us and those who are making their final transitions this holiday season.  Holidays are life to the ninth, there's good and bad, happy and sad, just like our routine daily lives.

I hope this Christmas Eve has brought you joy, I hope you have passed on kindness. 
Here are some pictures from the cookie gala.
