52|52 Week Fifty Two! (Dec 24-31, 2012)

Woo hoo!  With this post I’ve completed a second year of photo journaling.

Christmas Eve was a nice evening with family over.  We had lots of food and exchanged gifts. After the gifts, my brother-in-law surprised his girlfriend with an engagement ring and she accepted his marriage proposal.  Later we enjoyed playing a card game and laughing.

Christmas morning there was no rush to get up and open gifts since we had opened most of them with Kelsey the week before.  We did save a few gifts so we would have some to open.  The best part, for me, was when we did FaceTime on our iPhones with Kelsey.  We each got to see and hear her and she asked Travis to open her remaining gifts while she watched.

There was threatening weather Christmas Day but it didn’t really develop into much at our home.  It was fun to have it actually snowing on Christmas Day.  That doesn’t happen too often here in Oklahoma.  As Keith watched the snow fall in our backyard he alerted me to a wildlife photo opp.  There was a bird on our neighbor’s fence near the house with all the wind and snow whirling around him.

Later that evening when I looked out a window, Purrkins was all curled up on the loveseat with the snow as the backdrop.  Such a peaceful view.

When the weekend arrived we took our Christmas decorations down and put them back in the attic until next year.

As 2012 drew to a close, Keith got us some Martini Asti because I like sweet wine and because sparkling wine is perfect for New Year’s Eve.
