Christmas Pictures & Happy New Year

Can you believe 2016 will soon be a memory? We enjoyed receiving your Christmas cards and letters with family photos and news. Since I’m taking time to be with my family, instead of my usual blog, I’m sharing a few highlights from our Christmas as captured by iPhone.

My Christmas celebration began in early December with a fun trip to Chicago with my daughter. The snow, cold weather, and festive lights set the mood. Greetings of “Merry Christmas,” delighted us everywhere we went.



Yes, that’s a real dog in the window.

With my love for beautiful buildings, I couldn’t resist this picture.

 Our daughter Ginny helped us prepare for Christmas Eve guests.

We gathered together with good friends to celebrate Jesus' birthday. Share on X

Christmas morning, even CoCo was smiling.

This pillow pretty much sums up the Wilson household.

May the Lord grant you a fruitful and happy New Year!

Also, remember our Buy One, Gift One opportunity runs until January 10th.
