Evening view from condo on Amelia Island, taken with Iphone camera:
Would you believe me if I told you I made this huge Christmasy gingerbread ship, the S.S. Ginger Amelia, all by myself?
No? Why not?
And what a treasure it was!
Now look at the size of this Christmas tree compared to me! (It’s right next to the ocean, by the way.) Daytime pic:
Islands make me so very happy!
Grandtwins Madison and Matthew:
Grandsons Gabriel and Daniel:
Most awkwardly funny moment of the holiday so far–wait, let me set the scene. We were in the incredibly beautiful and highbrow lobby of the Ritz-Carlton–Buckhead in Atlanta over the weekend. Just past these Dickensian carolers:
Resplendent Santa standing by the fireplace, creating a perfect Christmas tableau, with adoring children all around. Without warning and with great, earnest conviction, five-year-old grandson Daniel yelling, “He’s a Fake!” His parents threatening loss of Christmas coming.
Joyful Christmas to you!
Almost out of the Bag. May your final preps (or lack of prep) be joyful.
