The face of a 7 year old
upon realizing her parents' birthday present to her
is a ticket to see Justin Beiber in concert.

She was speechless.

Then she went "SQUEEEEEEEE!"

Happy birthday sweet little niece!

Christmas Eve Dinner

Princess Leia offering to help carve.

Boneless leg of lamb.

Potatoes roasted in lamb drippings.

Brown gravy made with a wee bit of red wine.

Peas and mushrooms sauted in butter and garlic.

Picture a ceaser salad to start and a chocolate cake to finish.

Princess Leia, Trixie, Chelsea and the elves were
banished to the stairwell during dinner.

The Sister, the B-i-L and my babies!
(Okay, they are her babies.)

The Husband, me and the nieces!

Christmas Eve with family, priceless.

I hope yours was merry and bright!
