Have a very, very merry

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens

SUNDAY NIGHT PAUL and I spent at Paul's sister, Lori, and her husband, Randy's home, all but two of the immediate family were in attendance. Those present were —

Paul and Lori's brother, Tom
Tom's son, Daniel
Lori's two children, Danielle and Ryan
Danielle's two girls, Kennedy and Quinn
Ryan, his wife Lindsay and their two girls, Marin and new baby Lauren
Paul's mom and dad, Phyllis and Keith
And me

The two missing and missed were Tom's daughter, Darragh and Danielle's husband, Jeff.

Here are a some pictures from the night:

Lori and baby Lauren.
