coloring was very popular…
Dinosaurs were very popular
Cheryl had the best mask
Books, always a favorite,
an old painting of mine in a new home…
Joe the cat remained untroubled throughout
and then we said goodbye to this little village and headed home…
I cleared my art supplies and gift wrap off the table and set it up for dinner for two (even though it can and has seated 12)…
We exchanged a few gifts…I’d been thinking of my Mom and wanted a split-leaf philodendron…
And then the Christmas dinner for two…a toast…
and maybe we felt a little bit…well…
but there was a Christmas bonus. After a semi-tragic accident, Sue Mason’s nice pot has been restored by an elf…
And on we go friends, not knowing what 2021 will bring, but bravely we advance.
For Christmas past…1944, Idaho…Piatt gives baby Roger a bath…
Keep in touch with each other.
Phew! That post is a document for Christmas 2020. Good you made this illustrated history for “On The Way”. Keep on the job. Salvation in that. sloy&nic
P.S. Is that your father bathing the baby (you?) in what appears to be an enamel basin? it’s a heartwarming photo.
No it’s Roger’s father bathing him…I wasn’t born yet, in faraway Chicago.
OOPS! Of course I can read but I didn’t. Blurted first. Roger! All good. A super photo.
So glad that your darlings are close, as are most of mine. Different but not a Christmas without it’s pleasures. Hoping for a Merry New Year for all of us.
Thanks for this. So pleased you got to see your kiddos. Happy new year.
thanks for sharing you christmas
Lovely pics as always, Bonnie. Although I was a little sad about the no hugs part, but what to do? Oh my, that 1944 pic of Roger in the bath, what a different time. I’m so glad you guys have each other, just as I am glad my mom and I have each other. At least we have a small tribe in these times. Otherwise my mom would get no hugs and how truly sad that would be.
Though different, you managed to find the JOY and make everything beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I find it a blessing to know you. xoxo
Right back at you Shirley…next year, in the side yard of the little secret house?
What a covid-joyous day! Looks lovely. Best wishes for 2021!
You too Linda…talk soon. Xxoo
🥰 happy new year!
Happy New Year Deb..look forward to watching over your shoulder…
This celebration of your “Pandemic Christmas” filled me with joy, Could a more festive, memorable celebration be possible?
(It’s gray and drizzly outside; I have a ceiling-high pile of blue books to grade. But: your post teased out the sun.
Love to you and Roger and all your precious elves,
