Christmas At the Macs

This year has come to a close and just about slipped into one of the many photo albums stored down in the basement. Here are a few impromptu pics taken on Christmas and at a local fire station charity breakfast with Santa, soon to be added as well.

Mr. Mac was able to get the day off work and the entire clan was home for Christmas. We had a nice breakfast ... mid day snacks ... and a sit down dinner with all the trimmings. Nathan made an appearance for the gift exchange .. then withdrew to the safety of his room. He wasn't too cooperative about getting in the family pictures ... hence the misc. pics of him from the fire station. Ann's birthday dinner pics that include her beau, Greg, on a break from his fireman duties ... she's now a 'un-teen' ... hip, hip, horray! (sigh of relief;)

Have a memory filled last week of the year as we wait for a brand new one filled with many possibilities.

Thank you Jesus for giving us reason to hope and celebrate!

Dear Mrs. Mac,
Seems like you've had the best of all celebrations; your family around you safe and sound. Your Ann is a true American beauty, and she looks happy as happy can be.
Dear Nathan sure is having a good time at the fire station. That boy is choosing his joys carefully.
Bet he has lots of good memories of this day as well.
The old train around the tree, well, that's a new thing to me. So decorative.
It will not quite the same with Gunnar's old racing cars, I presume.
All the best from Felisol
