Our Christmas Parties! ( Family pictures)

~~~

The end of Christmas Day always leaves me feeling a little sad and this  is becoming more extreme with the passing years. I think it's due to the fact of knowing  I will not always be able to maintain the pattern we have set for our family's celebrating and getting together  as a family for Christmas.

Changes scare me. 
 Of course, changes are always happening in our lives... some good-some bad-sometimes just shifting and rearranging of our situations.

In many ways this Christmas was more joyful for our family than last year. We were not all together last year ; thankfully, we were  together this time!

For one more Christmas - here we are - all together!

Yummy foods both days!

Tina made most of those trays of food. She and Alli made a lot of cookies too!  The others brought food too.


Charles and I did the turkey dinner on Christmas-and the ham on Christmas Eve.





Happy Holidays to all!!

Love,
Junie

Looks like it was a wonderful Christmas, Junie! I'm so glad for you that everyone was able to be there... I know how you miss people when they can't make it!

Your food looks fabulous!! What is that ring that looks like a crust stuffed with broccoli and bacon and some other things, with sesame seeds on top? I've never seen that before, but it looks delicious!

You guys had quite the family get-together. Right now, that's all that matters.

I know how you feel Junie. The wonder of how everyone can be with one on these special days still fills me with awe. We too had kids,spouses and grand kids too on Christmas Eve. Yet I stop to wonder how much longer will this be possible. No Junie you are not alone in your thoughts

Thanks, all of you!

Skye-
Tina found all these really neat recipes online to make and I don't know what any were called! haha
Everything was good!

Thanks Mary-and all of you- for putting up with and understanding my melancholy feelings!

Hope we all have a very happy New Year in 2011.

Junie
