Busy as a bee today and wanted to post something on my blog...so ran through some photos in my iPhoto and realized I didn't post one Christmas photo!  So, ok...better late than never!  This is my daughter, Kelly and her son, Tyler.  You can barely get a photo of these two as they are NEVER still!
Love the tree!  We spent Christmas Eve at Kelly's house....this is her tree.   My one and only grandchild, Tyler standing there with Lindsey, my granddaughter-in-law.
 And, here we are.  The old folks!  The old navy man, Richard and me.  What a pair!!! 
Kelly with her hubby...Rick.  He's a really good cook.  Not only did he cook the meat for our Christmas Eve dinner, but he cooked a chicken for me to take home for Christmas dinner!  Delicious!
Here, dinner is almost ready.......and we are all hungry!  There is room for several cooks in this kitchen....but these two have everything under control!!
Tyler, the old navy man and Lindsey hamming it up by the tree!  I like this photo...and love the way the tree looks up close.   By the way...Kelly loves lots of color!!!
The overhead lights are off in this photo...the better to admire the tree lights.  Yes, the tv is on, but the sound, at this point, is off.  No joke, my whole house will fit in this living room/kitchen....a huge open room.
Our favorite spot is out on the patio.......and on cold nights sitting out there with the fire going is a wonderful treat.  Yeah, the photo is too dark, maybe it's a 'mood' photo.  Kelly, Rick, Tyler and Lindsey are out there.  You can see the tree inside and I'm taking the photos.  It's cold and cozy at the same time!
Another photo of the tree...well, sort of.  OK, what's the 8 for?  Well, it's Kelly and Rick's lucky number - they were married on 8-8-98!
Kelly and her daughter-in-law, Lindsey.  Two cute girls!  Actually, getting them to be still for a photo is also quite an accomplishment.

And, there you are...a few Christmas photos for me to remember all year long.  Well, you know, as fast as time goes by...Christmas 2013 will be here soon!

Hope your new year is going well.......stay warm and have some FUN!!!  take care, pat

Great pictures, and what a tree! I just can't imagine that much space. My kitchen only holds one person at a time and you have to walk sideways like a crab.

Really nice pictures. I especially like the one of you and Richard.

The house is fantastic. What is the history? It looks like exposed rafters from an industrial building. I'd love to know about it.

Here's to a great 2013. Its started off really good for me.
Much Love,
Carol

Oh, I love Christmas photos. I can't believe I didn't hardly take any this year. I really regret it now. The house looks beautiful.
