Merry Christmas!

Today would have been my parents
 65th wedding anniversary.  
I am blessed to have been the daughter of these 
amazing individuals.  

Yesterday Enzo waited all afternoon for our guests...
he knew that given the house was cleaned and 
the dining table was set...
someone was coming to see him of course!

An evening of conversation filled with laughter is just what I needed.  I did have some mishaps in cooking earlier in the day but all came together and, as someone reminded is about the time spent with friends...not the food :)  I received some wonderful surprises!  Isn't this Santa pillow adorable!!!

And this pile of fun...says so much...I am cute as a button? I need to get my embroidery done? I need to do some rotary cutting and  start some quilting...I have a choice of being naughty or nice...I am loved.  

 Thank you for traveling this blog journey with me and I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday.
