My favorite thing about the holidays is the opportunity to connect with family and friends. In the hullabaloo of the merchandising, there is that small corner of the world in which family moments can stand out against the backdrop of materialistic fervor.
Yesterday was one of those times. For the past few years, these get-togethers have become a tradition. My son from LA travels to Sacramento for the Thanksgiving event, and then, with his three kids, meets up with those of us who live in Central California for lunch and sharing. And photo ops. Those are not as popular with the kids, who like to goof around and make faces.
But this time, they were eager enough to get into their own activities that they actually cooperated quickly.
It was pretty cold here yesterday, so while they were running around, we adults were shivering nearby.
Here are some of the photos.
These are moments I will treasure always, and having the photos ensures that the memories will be there at a glance.
What special moments have you enjoyed over the holidays? I hope you’ll stop by and share….
