F Is For Festive Family

I don't have a lot of real close friends, got tons of acquaintances or people who may call me friend, but my selection is few.
It seems the older I get, the less friends I focus on.
I keep in contact with everyone on Facebook, family included, but only visit my two besties.
So let's put our attention on my other friends. The ones that God blessed me with. Family.
My son, Kris, and myself
Celebrating Christmas festivities was hard this year. I had my son, but my hubby was working for the first time in 13 years we have been together. That meant it was just my son and I for most of the day. In the afternoon we spent it with my side of the family, and in the evening with my in-laws. This photo was taken at home in the morning, in front of our tree. Mom wanted a Christmas photo and the kiddo happily obliged.
Then we left around 3pm to go to my sisters house for turkey dinner.

*NOTE: I am slightly dense at times and forgot to take photos at my sisters of anything other than her crazy cat. She is such a spoiled princess, she only eats treats from your hand. She climbs up people, and even sits on my nephews head. Plus she has already taken down half the Christmas tree for my sister. What a character!!*
Princess Sophie
So when the hubster got off work, we then went to his parents home for our Christmas lasagna. Of course gifts were exchanged, and this I managed to get on film.
The hubbs, his dad and mom.
The hubster loves his Polo shirts!

The kiddo and his new favorite sweater.
He actually put it on when we got home.
There is no photo of me and my goodies, sadly, but I did have a wonderful holiday and was very thankful for all I was able to do and have done. It felt like Thanksgiving all over again, but I suppose that is a good thing! It should be Christmas (or Thanksgiving) every day! It's festive times like this that remind me of this rule. Maybe it should be my resolution for 2014?! Always try to enjoy each day, even the crappy ones. Be thankful for who you have in your life, and love one another as much as you can while you can.

What about you? Did you celebrate and do you think you will make any resolutions for the new year?

PS - Happy belated Christmas.

  5. I'm not sure if I have any resolutions, except to eat better and exercise. How nice it was that you were able to visit both sides of the family and enjoy (in your own way) everyone. Children, no matter what age, are so special! {:-Deb

  7. Like you, I have only a few true friends. And I agree with Charleen -- that's all one needs. I got so caught up in my granddaughter's enjoyment of Christmas that I only managed to take two photos. What's wrong with me? Oh, well. There are plenty of images in my brain.

  13. Your photos are wonderful! I especially loved the one of you and your son. He is a handsome young man and you are beautiful! This was a quiet Christmas for us but a very enjoyable one. Our son and his wife came over and it was with great shock that we realized hours later that we had not taken ONE photograph. The same thing happened when we had a group of friends come over for a pre-holiday get- together. Our minds were obviously out for lunch!!!

  14. I spent my holiday with the entire family creating fond memories that we can all look back on for years to come...

    That is one of my favorite rules in life... It isn't always easy to do but it is well worth the effort!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "F"!

    Fantastic job!

    A+

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
