Merry Christmas!




Merry Christmas to all!





"And the angel said unto them"Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.'" Luke; 2:10, 11



We will be celebrating with our very special new little bundle of joy, our granson, and I'll be taking a short blogging break.

Many good wishes to all for a wonderful holiday season filled with the love of family and friends!

What a wonderful time of year to be rejoicing over the birth of a grandchild. Leo is so handsome and looks like the perfect Christmas present. You will be missed, but I know that you and Vinny'll be having the time of your lives. Looking forward to the pics of you both holding Leo.

Merry Christmas!
