It was such a fine day. It deserves a replay.

It was a day of Bruce's many bottles of wine
Georgette's funny stories and smiles
J- winning at Chronology
Donna's red spiked heels
Bonnie's salad and clementines
Marchin's entertaining us with 'smart ass' 
Peter's wide-range of historical trivia
Yelena's French easel's appearance
Paul's humorous interruptions and questions 
Christian's calm before heading to NYC 
Joanne's wonderfully touching toast
Elenka's amazingly choreographed feast
Birdman taking it all in among great friends
We lingered into the darkness together longer then most years
Call it Christmas 2013 

'Twas a special day, amid a room adorned with a sparkling tree dressed with many memorable ornaments reminding us of our past.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! :)

  2. It was a very nice Christmas - a wonderful time was had by all. Many very nice memories were created. And, Christian? He's still very calm. His mother? Well, that's another story! Thanks for a great day! Happy New Year!

  3. I'm not sure just what you're talking about but it appears you had a good time. I'm wondering about the high heels, though.

  4. That ornament looks very much like a few I have that my grandmother used to hang on her tree. I love those old ornaments.

  5. Sounds like an ideal Christmas. Well done.

  6. A perfect day and a beautiful ornament...

  7. Sounds like it was a great evening.

  8. Sounds like I want to be invited next year. I'll be staring at this ornament though.

  9. Beautifully bright ornament, Birdman! Glad you enjoyed such a full day.

  10. What a beautiful ornament! I have several similar ones that I inherited from my parents.
