Christmas Memories 2009

Christmas at the White House was simply beautiful and simply simple. After wrapping up a busy December with a show at the Children's Theatre, a crazy work schedule, and constant "go, go, go", it was wonderful to have Yaya and Mama B come in town to celebrate Christmas with us at our house. Christmas Eve was memorable and I sang "Gesu Bambino" at the candlelight service at church. I love that service! It is so lovely to see the glow of a thousand candles and hear the Christmas story, and to share it with loved ones. After the service, we came home and ate. . . and ate. . . and we continued to eat right through Christmas day!!! In Christmases past, we have either traveled to Asheville to be with Geoff's family or stayed in town to be with mine. This Christmas was extra special because we could have both Yaya and Mama B together with us on Christmas morning!

Here are a few pics of Christmas morning at the White House! Hope you enjoy ;-) I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas. We'll update again soon!!

I'm so happy to know that your Christmas morning was so sweet & just right! It looks perfectly perfect and there is something magical about being surrounded by special family members and just "being".....

I loved all the photos and I can well imagine how lovely your voice must have been at mass.

Wishing your family much joy and many blessings in the new year!!
