Christmas 2013 was a week-long explosion of adventure and joy. Braving snow and ice, George arrived with his parents early (really early) Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon he was filled with the wonder of the Holidays.
Christmas caroling on the Potwin circle Sunday night
was followed by the arrival of Mark on Monday and Andy, Donna and Hope on Tuesday. Christmas Eve allowed Dad to meet his Great Grandson George and snuggle with his Great Granddaughter Hope.
Granny got her Hope time too.
Our Christmas Eve also included Nancy, Mary and Kina.
Christmas Day brought Melissa & Roby from St. Louis and Anthony, SACII & Cheryl from Springfield
and lots of Christmas loot.
Many traditional photos were taken.
But somehow I missed a couples photo of SACII and Cheryl ... as well as one of Helen and me. Bummer.
Some new tradition photos might have been born as well like Jake hangin' with the kids
and cool guys hangin' in white golf shirts and jeans.
Oh yes ... while no major additions were mysteriously added to our exterior Christmas decorations this year, an unknown Holiday elf did discretely perch two crows on our south wreath.
Merry Christmas to all.
