Velcro, the sheep and the Kids

Yesterday was a jam packed day........especially in the afternoon when the kids and John came for our family Christmas.

Me, being the person who always has everything done ahead of time, realized at about 10AM, that I had time to go to the jardin and see the sheep.  Woo hoo.  I wanted to take a photograph of the live Nativity.
They used to have more animals.  This year it was sheep........

I was absolutely astonished to find parking places everywhere on the street.  Especially Mesones where the parking lots were closed.  No cars.  Few people.  Wonderful.

Also, you can see that the Baby Jesus is in the crib.  Put there about midnight when the fireworks began.......

After photographing, I went over to sit on the bench for a bit.  Enjoy the sun and the few people that were strolling by.

What a delightful surprise when all of a sudden Matilda and Sebastian with their mom and other grandmother came strolling by.  Matilda and Sebastian were so excited and surprised to me.  As much as I was to see them.  They both were trying to tell me what Santa had brought them earlier in the morning.  Delightful.

Then I asked their "Nonie" if she would take a photo of us. Graciously, she did.
THIS was my Christmas gift.  Just love it!  Then off they went to see the sheep and on to other things.  But, first Sebastian wanted to make sure that Santa had come to my house too, so he would have more presents.
Spoken like a true little four year old.  It made me chuckle inside.

Hopefully all of you had as joyful a day as we did. Many gifts for Matilda and Sebastian.  A magnificent turkey with gravy cooked by my son with other food cooked by me.  And lots of love and laughter.

Last, but not least.  A "Happy Holidays" from the other creature in our lives.  Velcro, the Cat, in gold lame' wings.

Thank you Peter and Angelinem - It was a great Christmas. Today I'm putting all the stuff away that has been out for over two weeks. The house looks "naked".

I wish you both the best in 2015.
