Happy 2010! Wow, where did 2009 go, it seems like just yesterday it was 2009. I remember thinking about all the plans I had for 2009 and they all seem as if they just happened yesterday. Christmas flew in and out just as quickly and now we shout out Happy New Year and welcome 2010!
My Christmas was so special this year. My son and his family flew in from Florida. There is nothing more special than having young ones/little ones around during the holidays. I spent more time watching the goings-on and did not take very many photos, but the memories are printed deep in my mind. I hope that I can have this again along with my other son and his family, maybe I can wish hard enough and it will happen. I did wish that my granddaughter would have snow for Christmas and that wish was granted, she really enjoyed playing in the snow, a Sunshine State girl loving the cold winter winds!
It was fun having more family around. The day after Christmas they went with my daughter and her boyfriend to NYC to see the tree and all the sites and sounds of the holidays that NYC has to offer. It was a cold/wet day, but they enjoyed seeing the sites. They took my granddaughter, who is quite the artist, to the MOMA to see the art work. Maybe one day she too will have her work exhibited!
A few photos of my special Christmas 2009. Next time I post I will share with you my wonderful gifts, but none will ever be as special as the gift of family. Happy 2010 one and all!
Little Welcome gifts the day they arrived.

Opening his stocking!
Opening her stocking!
And laying his finger aside of his nose and giving a nod up the chimney he rose, and I heard him exclaim as he drove out of site, Happy Christmas to ALL and a Happy New Year from our home to yours!
I promised my grand ♥ children I was going to try and get a picture of Santa going up the chimney after leaving gifts!
