Christmas Past

Christmas chalk graffiti in the family room
The photos are a little impressionistic, just like our memories of last night:  twenty-four places set for family and friends...
The Gold Table
The Red Table
The Holly Table
...good food, good wine, good cheer...hugs and happy conversation...enthusiastic singing of carols...saying "farewell" to guests as they drift off into the frosty night...

...and before sleep, a few quiet moments to reflect upon these very special people in our lives, and on what it means to celebrate this beautiful season with them.  May the spirit of Christmas stay with you all year long!
