Christmas 2016

 Merry Christmas 
Seasons Greetings 
It has been a very long time since anything was posted. As you know at my place just like many of yours much can happen and distract us from the blogging world.
Hubby went through a bad memory loss spell that brought much anger with our inability to communicate effectively in our household. He is on a new med and has improved enough to bring back some smiles.
Baby grandaughter and parents are here from UK for the holidays. 
Buddy is delighted but he too is showing changes in his love for social interactions. He is way too quiet of late while amongst family or friends. 
However, he did show his usual excitement for tree decorating, shopping for presents, gift wrapping and a quick word with his pal, Santa. 
He waHe very patiently listening to the live performance of Handel's Messiah last eve and while sitting in the car heading home through a light snowfall that coated all things around us he uttered that it was all so fantastic.
This is Buddy's tree for this year. We got a new star that sparkles. It 
makes our hearts feel joyful.
May you all feel special too.
'Tis the season.

Buddy's tree is beautiful and I like the new star and the pretty angel on it. Glad he enjoyed the Messiah.. sorry to hear he is quiet now, it might be he picks up on the difference in his dad. so sorry to hear of the memory problems. Enjoy your families visit and Merry Christmas

So sorry to hear about the problems you have had to face but am grateful that new meds are helping to normalize things somewhat. Perhaps this season will brighten Buddy into the happy fellow he usually is.
May your Christmas be memorable and the New Year bring only good health and happiness. Hugs from Arkansas.
