  1. Regardless of beliefs, I'm happy to join in the wishes for peace on earth and joy to the world ... and a lovely day for all of you fine folks.

  2. And from me too, a wonderful day to everyone, everywhere. My house is full of children, my son is cooking the dinner, daughters are doing other bits and pieces and soon we'll open presents. I always watch the Queen's Christmas broadcast at 3.00 and then 17 of us will sit down to eat.

    Regardless of what Christmas does or doesn't mean to anyone,what day could be better than this?

  3. Merry Christmas!!
    And other appropriate well wishes to all!!

    Happy Birthday, Nicky!! Works out well to have everyone around for the holidays. Good division of labor. Know all the kiddies will have a great day.

    Lasagna was great last night. Daughter made chocolate soufflé with an assist by Mom. Julia Child's cookbook not for the faint of heart.
    Turkey done, Monkey bread ready to be baked this morning, stockings filled.
    Miss having little ones to enjoy watching opening presents.

    Andi & Jim have a fabulous, relaxing day after being with family.

    Beth, enjoy Christmas with Phil.

    Maria, enjoy Skyping with family and quiet time with Kit.

    Farf, crack the whip and keep the hoard in line or grab Mason & run.

    Janet, Mayan cookies a hit.

    Waves to Kelly, Dina, Nancy, MaryB, B, Jen, FM And all others that follow.


    Pictures later. Too busy reconnecting with my inner 8 year old at the moment… later!

  5. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my dear blog family! I hope Santa was good to you - including snow for the Farfs, OMG! Phoenix would prolly shut down if that happened here.

    Sounds like everyone has wonderful plans for a peaceful, happy day. We opened presents and played a game of Scrabble (I beat the English teacher, ha ha!), and now are off to hike Shaw Butte to see the infamous Christmas Cactus. Not sure what the rest of the day holds, but I'm thinking egg nog has to fit in there somewhere.

    Off to Laughlin tomorrow for a couple of days, where I understand the internet AND cell connections sucketh. Will check in as I can. Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!

    Big hugs!

  6. Just back from our (mostly) annual Christmas hike over at the (mostly) empty Brown County State Park. Lovely way to spend Christmas.

    Well I have some perhaps less than joyous feelings about large groups of people for dinner but if it's your idea of a perfect day, then it's a perfect day. Enjoy, Nicky.

    Ooh, I love monkey bread. Hope you have a wonderful day and a yummy dinner, Lisa.

    Woo hoo, Farf. Can't wait to see pictures of you and Mason going sledding. :)

    I'll be looking forward to seeing pictures of the Xmas Cactus, Beth. Safe journey tomorrow.

  7. Here's a picture and video from earlier today. The snow is continuing to come down. It's kind of slushy, so it'll be crusty in the morning and the roads will be pretty well iced over.

  8. Looks very pretty, Farf -- though I imagine it's kind of scary being out on the road with people who have no idea how to drive in snow.

    But I want to see you and Mason sledding!

  9. I got to hear Far's voice! You sound nice, amigo. :)And what pretty pictures those are. I hope you're getting such a great kick out of it! Did you take a picture of Mason getting a snowflake on his tongue?

    Merry Saturday and/or Christmas to one and all. My mom and I hosted Nick and a cousin for a big fat turkey and fixin's, and now I'm watching "Giant" on my 'puter. After all I ate, I feel pretty gigantic, too.

    Cheers, all! And a special thanks and wassail to Andi and Jim and the pups.

  10. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Nancy.

    And to all a good night.
