Snapshot Summary: December 25-31: From Christmas to New Year's Eve {The first seven days of Christmas}

December 25-31
We had a lovely and blessed Christmas.
 and then we all got head colds which made the days following Christmas very quiet indeed. When people felt up to it, they enjoyed their Christmas presents, such as reading a book or playing a game on the computer.
On the 28th, my sweet James turned fifteen. (I can't believe it.)
We had a lovely fondue New Year's Eve party with Hope and Eddie.
The rest of the week was spent relaxing.
Happy New Year!

How was your week?

  1. What a beautiful season!
    Blessings, Dawn

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

  3. It all looks so homely and special. Please wish James a belated happy birthday!

  4. We had colds here too. Well everyone else had them and now I think I'm getting one.

  5. Happy New Year. It seems that entire country had colds during this Christmas break... including us. Happy birthday to James!

  6. Your Christmas break looks lovely except for the colds! I hope you are all having a wonderful 2016 so far and that this year brings amazing experiences.
