We had a beautiful Christmas! On both Christmas Eve and Day there was a light snowfall, which made everything look so pretty and festive. On Christmas Day, my husband and I were enjoying s a cup of coffee in our kitchen when we noticed a big, handsome mule deer buck enter our backyard. I opened the door and stepped outside to take a video of him, which you can see on my facebook link here. The deer saw me and actually walked right over to me and stood in front of me, just about three feet away! I took another video of him for a few more seconds, which you can watch on this facebook link, and then I stepped back inside. It was a very special encounter with this beautiful animal, and one I will never forget! (All photos will enlarge for easier viewing if clicked on)
We had a wonderful feast on Christmas Eve with my family. I made both fish and meat for dinner, as some of my guests prefer one over the other, and dessert was Christmas cookies as well as a trifle. We ate and ate and laughed and had a good time
Our grandchildren enjoyed opening their gifts ....both at our house on the eve and theirs on the day.
They are the light of our lives and bring us so much joy!
I will be taking a short blog break again, as I will be having eye surgery this week. Please keep me in your prayers for a good outcome and a complication free recovery. If you missed my posts about the surgeries I will be having, you can catch up here and here. As soon as I am able to see my computer screen again I'll let you know how everything went. In the meantime, have a very Happy and Healthy New Year! May 2016 bring only wonderful blessings to your life, and peace to our world. I look forward to "seeing" you all again in the new year.
