And it was, a wonderful Christmas. Family gathered around. Although we missed my brother and his wife, it was great to spend the day with the rest.
Everyone did love their presents. And I loved mine. Particularly one.
Everyone in my family knows how much I love to take pictures. Some of you may have an idea as well. What you don't see is the hundreds of family pictures I take. Every year.
My mom wanted pictures this year. And she got them. From all of us. Mine were a little different. A book for her, and copies for the entire family. And it worked.
My brothers and one of my sister-in-laws used to get annoyed with me taking so many pictures. Now, although they will still tease the shutterbug, they understand, and dare I say appreciate it.
And even before they knew my present to them, my parents gave me help to continue my hobby.
