Friday Night's Christmas Party

Good Morning! Here is the sunrise on the 19th, the morning of the Christmas Party. Below, the sun is weaving a magic carpet on the hillsides.

I was very busy on Friday, getting ready for the Christmas Party, Cookies was no help to me at all.....while ashes catnapped in preparation for a wild night of partying........
cookies was busy bird watching.........
when evening came, we plugged in the lights .........








things looked very festive.................


we had chicken going on the grill and a fresh bowl of catfood ready.................


the tree was covered in white lights and birds......................


the chest top was covered in special decorations...................a framed bejeweled tree from my sister.....................

a lovely little metal tree that belonged to my mothers' brother, which I have turned into a gumdrop tree.........................


last year's Santa photo.........................

the laptop was playing home alone......................


while the nutcracker watched over the bowl of mandarins.......................


candles glowed everywhere.................


while another nutcracker looked on...................................

some of our favorite decorations hung from the mirror.......................

it was a lovely party......the four of us had a nice evening.............feliz navidad!

It is a bit strange when you not only leave behind so many people but also so many traditions.

I always had a houseful over the holidays and it is a bit strange for it to be just Paul and me this year.

But we'll take a walk by the ocean in the morning with the dogs, come home for coffeecake, and make a nice feast, too.

It'll be good, just like your party on the 19th...just different.
