a bit of this, a bit of that

Christmas Dinner Memories


We went to my Sister and Brother-in-Law's home for Christmas Cheer this year!

Each year we alternate between my brothers and sisters homes, 6 in all.

We are fortunate that we all live in the same city except one sister who lives in Boston, she has 3 adorable little girlies and I think this is the first year that they have not made it to Toronto for the Holidays!!
Recently Chris moved to Miami and flew in for the festivites as well.

To follow are some random shots, you know, when you thought to pick up the camera, did not get any of the the dancing, gift exchanges, crazy time, gifts first distributed to each person, they piled and opened, wrapping everwhere...screams of...look at this...thanks you's...hysteria!!

This is one shot of my nephew Jordan,
my daughter Kirsten, my niece Lexie, and
hey...who is that ruining the shot from the back

....that's right...that's me just passin through!!

These are just a few of the people in my life
that make me smile, cry and laugh out loud!!


Tonight we are getting together at
Michele and Rod's for a
couple of drinks and
(what the heck) some more holiday cheer!!


I hope that your time spent
with family and friends was as enjoyable as mine!
Till next year....oohh...that's
just around the corner.
Have you thought of some things to
add to your
be more joyful list for 2010,
don't be shy....share them with me!!

  5. You have a beautiful family! It looks like you all really enjoyed yourself. We had similar issues with "unwanteds" popping up when you were trying to take a picture, usually it was someones hiney that ruined the shot though!

  6. awwww such awesome photos!!!! I love the one of you in the back being crazy! lol
    the food looks amazing, too!
    Glad you had a wonderful holiday!

  7. Loved seeing your family pics, and Nerina, your mother looks so YOUNG! Now, I know where you get your good looks! Are there five children in your family? I think that's so neat to have so many brothers and a sister, too. We had girls, and my aunt had boys... but we were like brothers and sisters we were so close. Glad it was fun. I'm funned out. LOL! I'm taking a blog break to rest.
