A Little Christmas Collage

I'm back home. There are not many thoughts from me at the moment, profound or otherwise. We visited Como Park, cooked, wrapped presents, went to the I Max and to church, ate, opened presents, played games, and laughed. Here are just a few pictures. I will be posting in a few days, maybe.

I'm not mad in the picture. I am just resting and enjoying the "jungle."

If you go to Minneapolis, don't miss Como Park's Conservatory and Zoo. Wonderful, wonderful place, especially when coming in out of winter's chill. And you only have to give a donation. The Minnesota Zoo is wonderful, and much bigger, but Como is one of our favorite places too. I will post some zoo pics in a few days.

Kris is still waiting. Trinity Ann should be arriving in daylight almost any day.

Josh is being his funny self.

The basset hound pup is Josh's. The hound/great dane is Kris and Daryl's. "The boys" as we call 'em, are great buddies, and they spent their time together begging, wrestling, running, clowning, and staring at us while we ate. They were active non-stop.

Till they crashed.

Daryl used to be overwhelmed by our family, I suspect. But he's getting used to us ;-) and had a great time opening presents. Here he tries out a pair of shooters earmuffs. We love Daryl, and he is going to be a wonderful daddy!

Back at Josh's place, J.J. the basset pup curled up on the couch, looking like a tired toddler. We all felt pretty much the same way.

It was a good few days. How was your holiday?

it was a nice holiday here - sounds like the weather might have been nippier where you were. The gardens you went to look LOVELY!

We went on Saturday. Just missed ya!

When I go back after baby's birth I hope I can get together with you and Ruthie. I should be there for several days, I hope, and I'll need a break. :-)

I definitely want to get together with you when you're back for the baby's birth!!!

I remember when we were at Como Park, the first time we met, when our daughters were so concerned about us meeting someone we only knew from the Internet. Those were the good old days.

Glad you had a good holiday with your family. You deserve that.

Welcome home, and thanks much for the sweet comment at "my place." Will be posting a little more there soon about how Christmas was here.

Happiest of New Years to you and your loved ones, dear sister!
