Our Night Before Christmas

 For the last 25+ years we have had the family Christmas Eve's party at our home.
It is always FULL of family.
Full of fun.
Full of food.
We laugh a lot.
 We love much.
 It was a beautiful Christmas Eve.  
Filled with enough to keep me satisfied, 
well, until next year =)

Oh so lovely, Dianne. I can just feel the warmth in your pictures. Our Christmas was different than any before but I deeply felt the love of Jud and Kat and many friends who have fed us and been so kind. That is a loving experience in itself!
Hugs,
Suz

What a beautiful family you have Diane! Little ones and Mr Potato Head makes for the best Christmas memories!

Blessings for the new year!

For me 2010 was the year I made a new friend, Diane & I took her hand & she helped guide me on the adventure of a lifetime!!
I wish I lived down the street from you & could give you a great big Christmas hug..you were a part of my magic this year!

Blessings for a New Year filled with Joy, Peace & Love!

Diane - what an amazing family tradition! Hosting Christmas Eve for a quarter of a century! Looks like your evening was full of laughter, good food and warm memories. I see Alton is enamored with Mr. Potato Head...my 2 year old is too. :-) Thanks for sharing your holiday in these beautiful pictures.
