Counting Christmas Blessings...

Our son is home from college for the holiday break after whizzing through another semester...(we are so proud of him!)

My Dad was able to join us from Assisted Living and spend some time with us and his newest grandchild, Ella Jane...

There were toys all over the living room floor which we haven't seen in our home in almost 20 years...

We were fortunate to have our new little niece Ella Jane spend her very first Christmas with us...

It was a pleasure to wake up at 4 a.m.  Christmas morning to start cooking a 12 pound roast for Thad's family and mine...

To have a home filled with young and old & joy and laughter...

To have friends & family from near and far think of us...

And a total surprise from one of my Silver Bella blessings...look at the precious apron Sandy Marotti made and sent to me along with a vintage copy of a photo she found at a garage sale! Love it!

And most of all, my biggest blessing this year was to have everyone healthy and happy.

Have you counted your blessings for this joyous holiday season?
