This is one of my favorite times of year with the lights, classic Christmas music and lots of get togethers with family and friends. I wanted to share with you a few photos from my Christmas past along with some photos of my girls celebrating the holidays over the past few years. I'm not sure if there were many photos taken in between the earlier and more current photos or where they are but these bring back a lot of good memories.
I'm especially grateful to have the photo of my mom back in 1957 since she is now staying with us after being displaced by Hurricane Sandy. She is dealing with advanced Alzheimers and her health is not so good but I'm very lucky to be able to spend this time with her. She reminds me of what the holidays are all about. It really is all about family.
These have been difficult times for many of my readers so I hope these photos put a small smile on your face and bring you a little cheer.
Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas!
