Precious Christmas Memories ~

Merry Christmas to all ~  I hope your Christmas day has been as wonderful as ours ~ 

I just want to share a couple of images from today ~

Mr. Vintage and Chessie love to look out the window.  Who are they watching?  We certainly didn't have any snow here in Harrow, Ontario and no one was outside ~ these two make me smile ;-)

Chessie was still watching ~ even though we were having breakfast ~

 I think Chess likes to open gifts ~ especially on Britt's lap

And last but not least ~ I have to say my daughter is the light of my life (next to Mr. Vintage, ofcourse) ~  She was having a tough time this Christmas ~ but, we got through the tough moments and smiled to each other, hugged and I will let her lean on me as long as she needs to lean  ~  She is such a wonderful young woman

A poignant moment ~

I  KNOW she will overcome ~

All in all it was a lovely Christmas ~ I bid you all a good night and hope that you had a wonderful Christmas too~!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours

Merry Christmas everyone ~ I know I'm new, but I am going to be around for a LOOOONNNGG time ~ Mommy said so ~ woof~!

  8. oh how precious and blessed beautiful sweet chessie is!
    oh how precious YOU are!
    sending you all my love dear one...


  9. Your post brought tears to me as a mother....when our child/children hurt, we hurt.....we just want to take their pain away and it is easy to do when they are little, but as they become adults we can't kiss their boo-boos and make it all better......all we can do as be their friend, their rock, their #1 supporter and listen, we can give them a cozy haven to come to.

    I love your new boy!!!! He is precious!

    Hugs to you and your baby girl, I pray for comfort, peace and healing for you both in the new year! Niece

  10. I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas, it's so fun to see how much a part of your family Chessie has already become. God is Good and He is Good to us All of the Time.
    Have a great day, my frieind.
    Love and hugs, Cindy
