Few pictures of Christmas

Didn't get many pictures  on Christmas Day. Having a good time with  visiting  family and all of the little cousins and nieces and nephews.
I did get a few of decorations and of the great meal.
You can see outside, it was a pleasant day.  Garland and red ribbons on fencing.

Very pretty tree and the picture I took does not do it justice.  It is so pretty with the big red roses and poinsettias.

Nice manger scene in the tree.  Children notice right away and know the reason for this day.

I love the glow coming from this lighting over the table.

and under the lighting is some good food.

Ham, turkey, roast beef, pork medallions with orange marmalade and of course so many sides to choose from.

Den nutcracker

These penguins make me laugh when I see them.  They are crocheted.

Amy, my niece and her daughter Eisley who's my great niece - and  great she is.  Amy is a Professional Photographer of weddings and childrens Photography - Here

Yes there were plenty of cookies, cakes, and cupcakes etc....

Porch tree.  Nice place to sit and relax beside the tree  with the wood stove warming the room.  So cozy.
 Time to leave and my grandchildren are still in the yard playing.  It looks dark but there are plenty Christmas lights shining to see well.
Wished I had gotten more of the rest of the family but the kids that could get around, did, and no keeping them down.  Plus, I was holding my great niece for good while who is only five weeks old.  So sweet.


  1. Oh, how beautiful to see everyone happy and the house all decorated to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ!! So glad you had family members there with you to celebrate together. May 2019 be a marvelous year for you and your family.

  2. Beautifully decorated to welcome the birth of Christ!!

  3. It's all so lovely, Betsy! You took a lot of wonderful photos! I was so busy during Christmas I took very few photos. That's hard to do when you have a house full of family. ♥

  4. Dearest Betsy,
    That sure was a very warm and cozy happening for Christmas!
    You are so blessed for having a big family.
    We are only the two of us on this side of the Atlantic... our 35th solo Christmas.
    But we celebrate it only the religious way, this time I didn't even find time to decorate at all.
    With my job through December 18, having to launder, clean, shop and gone was the time.
    Being very happy for having completed tonight the scheduled posts about our adventures for consulting work in India.
    Pieter enjoys reading them and may God grant me the time for finishing all my chronicles in time for him to re-live.

  5. Oh, Betsy, sorry I'm so late getting around to it but I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and I finally did. Looks like it was wonderful and a good time was had by all. Everything looks so pretty and I can just see the kids wondering through the candy canes at night..Happy New Year..xxoJudy0
