Christmas Memories

Christmas Eve started off with a beautiful sky, full of pillowy clouds.  I got these pictures on our way to breakfast, a family tradition that remains one of our favorites.  We gather our children (and sometimes their friends) and head to a local restaurant for breakfast.  For some reason, this simple outing is one that we all hold dear. For two weeks prior, my husband and daughter "auditioned" breakfasts until they found The One.

After breakfast we usually visit a few favorite shops.  I can always count on a few stocking stuffers, this year I found  Darth Maul and Boba Fet,  figurines which were sure to delight. 

Dinner was a late affair, at least for us - son and son-in-law didn't get off work until 8:00.  But I thought the table was especially pretty this year.

First up is a little cup of fruit - grapefruit and orange sections. Followed by spaghetti and french bread.

Christmas morning breakfast saw a change in table decor.

It was such a lovely day.  And after all the excitement, it was so nice to relax and enjoy the rest of the day.  
I hope you had a lovely Christmas.
