Our Christmas, 2012, in photos:
Rose #3, as a surprise Little Shepherd in the Christmas Pageant at Church:
And here is a shot of the members of our family who attended the 4:00 service (Rose #1 and #2 were in the children's choir...you can see their vivid red choir robes):
After the pageant is over we always come home and track Santa's progress on the computer:
Here are all three girls huddled by the computer, watching where Santa was headed next:
And Christmas 2012, in food (Christmas Eve tortellini sausage soup YUM!):
Rose #3 loving her dad on Christmas Eve:
I didn't eat any of it, but I cooked a Standing Rib Roast for the group on Christmas night...as I was texting with my brother about cooking questions I abbreviated the dish to "SRR":
And, The Best Yorkshire Pudding Ever:
Duncan came to dinner. I LOVE Duncan:
I think this sums it up. We had a wonderful Christmas. We feel so blessed by our fortune and our family. We spent a lot of time talking about Mom tonight and for the first time since she died - 2.5 years later - it felt joyous and wonderful and not desperate and sad.
Good night Rose #3, and good night all!
