Jingle bell rock

2013, in its dwindling days, is officially the year that would not die for my friends and family. Though I’m ready for it to be over and my today my heart is heavy for ones near and dear to me, this afternoon I’ll focus on all the jingle bell rocking fun we had with the kids, grandkids, family and friends over the Christmas holiday.

We have so much for which to be grateful, and 2014 has got to be a better year.

And tomorrow I’ll be a better writer.

Today, we’ll just let photos and captions tell the tale.

Christmas mornings start early with the dogs opening presents. Tess particularly loves to open gifts.

Zuzu had to work hard to get her bone out – but in a meatless household, that's a huge deal and well worth her effort.

How my husband sees me – I'm a lucky gal. I'm already teaching Annabelle and Sylvia to do Wonder Woman poses.

Christmas afternoon, after the kids had scattered for other places, Cathy, Paul, Mother, John and I saw “Saving Mr. Banks.” Lovely movie for  a lovely day. That’s going to be our new tradition since Mother is alone now. (Ben, Liz and their cousin Rob used to do that for years as teenagers. Now it’s the old folks’ turn.)

That’s all I can muster for today, folks. Peace and love.
