This year we had a Fraser fur for our live Christmas tree.
Last night at dinner I thanked my mom for always making our family gatherings at Christmas a special and memorable time to look foward to each year.
Maybe it is because we don't overdue it with the sharing of Christmas presents.
Maybe it is because I enjoy spending time with members of my family and we enjoy the chance to come together and visit and enjoy some special meals.
I am fortunate in these respects. And I believe this comes from the pattern set by my parents and my husband PKR's parents.
And that is one of the most beautiful and precious Christmas gifts of all.
Here is PKR modeling his new coat.
These two photos show Z2, Kiki Aru and The Princess all enjoying opening their gifts on Christmas morning.
