The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

Family, friends, festive decor, good food, fun times.

Getting ready to feast on Christmas Eve dinner.

Super yummy yams!

Yummy veggies.

My turkey was a hit! yay!

My mom's delicious pineapple glazed ham.

A Christmas staple.. baked treats!

We received so many generous gifts (both handmade and store bought). We are so thankful for our many friends and family who thought of us during this holiday season.

Pia received a "P" charm from her nana (god mother) to add to her charm bracelet.

A few of the goodies that I received.

The hand made dolls I purchased for Zoe and Pia.

The hand made doll Pia received from her god father and auntie.

Zoe received this uber cute charm from her tata.

And this quilt has not left Zoe's side since she opened it. It was also hand made by her auntie.

But of course, Christmas is not about the gifts given or received. It's about being with family and friends, which is the greatest gift of all.

From our family to yours... Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

what a beautiful set of Christmas pictures. The decorations are beautiful, the food looks fantastic, and most important of all - your family looks so happy and loving. I always enjoy your shots of your family - they/you are never without smiles! Gorgeous and heartwarming.
