CHRISTMAS 2017




   On Sunday Buddy went down to the basement to bring up our tree as it was going to be cecorated later in the day. The tree is stored in three parts and usually it has been put together by a sister. This year was different. While hubby and I were binge watching Crown he managed to put the tree together as seen in the first photo. I was so happy for him as he felt very proud of this achievement.
   After supper his sister who dropped by joined him in putting the ornaments on the upright tree. First they figured out the lighting and added a remote for easy on off options and then they put the skirt around the base. There was lots of laughter and then we were called to see their creation. The smile I captured on Buddy’s face says it all. His joy brings joy to us.
   I took a close up of an ornament as our greeting to all of you.  Here’s wishing you the very best this holiday season. Seeing my reflection in it made me recall what a busy year has just passed us all globally and locally. May we be grateful for our blessings once again.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS AND SEASONS GREETINGS MY FRIENDS

I see you in the ornament and you are right about the smile, it is almost outshining the beautiful tree they created. Hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas

Dear Heidrun, you are such a fine mother and you and Buddy are so fortunate to have one another. Your taking joy in his joy must be one of the best definitions of Christmas. Peace and happy Christmas to you.

Great job Buddy! I don't have a big tree, just a little one. Do you think you could lend me Buddy for next year? LOL.
