Songography - Home for the Holidays Edition

Wow it's hard to believe that Christmas of 2013 is now just a memory but yet it's true. - All the rush to get everything done on time and the excitement that the day finally arrived is now just a part of the past and yet those memories will last the rest of my life.  I love being "home" for the holidays.  I can't imagine any where else I'd rather be.  I didn't take many pictures over the Christmas holiday but I do have a few to share for this weeks edition of SONGOGRAPHY hosted by Kathy, (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out.)


The Christmas tree with it's bountiful amount of packages awaiting opening bright and early Christmas morning.  We usually get up around 5:30 am to open our gifts.

Here is one of the few I took of Coleen Christmas morning after she opened one of her gifts.  I just love the happy look on her face.

I must say "Santa" was very good to everyone and we all were very happy with our gifts.  By the time we opened everything it was nearly time to head next door to my mom's house where most of the family was able to join in on the traditional Christmas breakfast.

No need to eat again until later in the afternoon after a spread like that.
All in all it was a very nice Christmas spent at home with those I love.

Looking forward to sharing more great songs with Kathy and with you in the coming new year.


  1. Looks like you had a wonderful day! Nice Christmas tree - so many presents! And wow, what a great spread of food. Happy New Year to you.

  2. fabulous shot of Coleen!! And my favourite I think would be that stick bun in the lower right hand corner, though I'd probably eat everything if I were there :-). It takes us a long time to prepare and then like a good dinner it seems to have passed by in a blink of an eye.

  3. Love the look of joy on your daughter's face. Priceless. Breakfast looks delicious.

  4. ooohhhh ida, so warm, so inviting!! LOVE the food and colleens purple hat!!

    ps....looks like the tree just cleared the ceiling ;)
