A few Christmas Day photos...

Joe and I hosted Christmas dinner this year. It was a really nice day and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I wanted to share a few photos...


Addy taking a little snooze under the tree before everyone arrives


Joe helping the "girls" open one of their gifts


Emily showing off her pretty dress


Getting ready to dig into the presents


Emily in the middle of her pile


Josh picked out a doll for Katie, but HE was more interested in it


There was a present under the tree for Lauren from my brother and his family, which really touched me. This is Lauren's very first Christmas present. The box looks a little worn because the kids picked this out on their Manhattan trip at FAO Schwartz and ended up carting in all around for the day in the rain. This doll will ALWAYS be very special to me.

Looks like a great time Donna. I love the picture of "the girls" waiting for their present. Such concentration. Too cute.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

How exciting, Lily and Lauren will have twin dolls to play with together.

The dogs are too cute. Max got a big cow bone for Christmas and is so funny to watch when he carries it around the yard to look for a perfect place to lay down and chew on it.

I am laughing at the look of anticipation on the furgirls faces! Too cute.

Love the people pics too...Emily's dress is very pretty.

It IS so special that they thought of Lauren! A present that will always be dear to your heart because of what it meant....that someone else was thinking of her too!

First,Merry Belated Christmas and an on-time "Happy New Year"! I have the Corolle doll as well, and she is so tiny and cute. The other thing about her is that she smells good...go ahead...take her out and smell her...she smells like baby powder. Not only that she's so tiny and sweet that I just put her in the crib. I think Keira will have a favorite in that doll.

Meanwhile, great pictures of the dogs with Joe! Isn't that sweet?!?!

I love your blog ~ I can never be lonely with all my blogger pals...

Hugs,
