Our Holiday in Review

Christmas at my house was a very quiet one. Rita was here all day with me. Joe and Jan stopped in during the afternoon. We talked with both Ruth and Kitty on the phone. It was a very nice day, in touch with all of our loved ones.

Here is a photo of Rita, and one of her favorite gifts - a Santa statue from Joe and Jan.

Here I am, and one of my favorites - a flameless candle from Lisa.

And of course, here are some from California. They start with Mike's birthday, which falls on the first day of winter. He's taking in a deep breath in order to blow out the candles.

Then there is their tree. Looks as if Santa had already arrived when this was taken.

And Isaac, trying on a Santa hat.

Then one of his favorite gifts - a crane. Some kind of heavy construction about to go on here.

What is not shown here is his big gift from Mommy and Daddy, which was a remote control aquatic car that looks like a manta ray.

After much of the initial excitement was over, their family spent some time at Asilomar Beach, exploring tide pools.

Here is the beach boy.

And here are he and his dad, doing their thing.

I think I could thoroughly enjoy spending Christmas Day at Asilomar.

It appears to have been a good Christmas in both places, Bobbie!! said...

Thanks for sharing your lovely Christmas day Bobbie. It amazes me how you look so much like your toonlet version of yourself & your grandson Isaac-such a strong family resemblance.

The only thing I regret about our move to Hawaii is missing our granddaughter and daughter so much.

Oh, what a wonderful post. Isaac is growing so fast! With the adventures his mom and dad take him on, his little mind must be soaking up everything. What an exciting time of life!

I like that photo of you, next to the flameless candle. I echo what Dianne said!
