Merry Christmas!

Christmas has come and gone and it was a lovely time with family and friends.
  Thursday, Dan and I went to The Toledo Zoo for the Lights Before Christmas.
We met up with our dear friends, Debbi & Steve there, after a long wait in traffic!
I thought the wait was worth it, not so sure about Dan, he was kind of stressed out by the time we walked through the Zoo's entrance gates. ;-)

 I took a lot more pics of the lights, but don't want to go overboard sharing them here!

 We spent most of Christmas day/evening at my sister's house.
It was a time of family, fun and food!  Of course I took tons of pics, here is a sample.
With three of my children. Randy, Kelly and Chris

Christmas morning, 2011
Dan had to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Dan, Kelly and I opened gifts when he came home from work Christmas morning. So I was able to get a few pics of him. Sadly he couldn't come with us to my sister's house Christmas afternoon/evening for the family festivities. We are hoping and praying Dan will be able to retire this spring. It will be so nice to have him be with us at all of the family functions.

 Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. 
 Love & Blessings


  1. Merry Christmas Pam, looks like you all had fun.

  2. gorgeous photos Pam, and you should never worry about photo overload! It's always wonderful to see what blog friends have been up to :O)

    I hope Dan can retire too. It's a shame he has to miss out or work on special days.

    The photo of you and your mum is just fabulous, you look amazing.

    My mum is going to be pleased to hear how some of my blog friends thinks she looks young! It'll make her day!

    Well, I need to get to bed. It's not yet 9 here for me, but the week or so of interrupted sleep is getting to me. Couldn't get a drs appointment for the girl today, but she seems ok. Fingers crossed she's starting to improve! I'll know if she sleeps through tonight!

    Enjoy what's left of Christmas

  3. lovely photos Pam of your wonderful family.
    Everyone looks so happy. I hope Dan can retire as you would like him to so you can have more time at family functions too.
    May the new year bring all the best for you and your family.

  4. Sounds like you had a great time Pam! Your daughter is just beautiful! Have a blessed week and I hope you have a beautiful and prosperous 2012.
