Lastly, it wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t include my favourite Christmas song by my favourite Beatle.

2013 beckons, let’s make it better.

  1. Merry Christmas, Juli! Thanks for putting together all these photos of your Christmases. I’m in Seattle with both my boys. Just got home from Mizuki’s Christmas program–all in Japanese. Never saw a program quite like it with some Santa songs and the story of the 3 little pigs. Unexpected but charming. Some very loud little boys playing the wolves, a number of small children bursting into tears with the arrival of Santa, parents taking a million photos and singing along with their little ones and an audience of even smaller children applauding their older siblings.

    Dinner is ready. Must go. Love, Diane

  2. Hi Juli, a beautiful presentation of Christmas past, many wonderful memories and this one will be very special too. Love to all, xxxxxxx

    • Merry Christmas to you and Mike, Lyn. We’ll miss you next Sunday, but I have to confess it’s nice to be on this end of the ‘miss’ for a change! I had hoped you’d get the white Christmas you wished for, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this time. I’m sure you’ll still have a fantastic day. xxx,

  4. And a very good one to you and yours. Enjoyed the pix – think 2009 looks the happiest. Wishing you a guid New Year to follow. Suzanne xx and Jean.


    • Hi Suzanne,
      I hope you had a great day. We had the best – beautiful weather and wonderful people – and there’s still more to come. We like to spread these celebrations out, so we have the extended family Christmas next Sunday.
