Our celebration this year has been more austere, but meaningful nonetheless, spent with family. Food, presents, trimmings all around... we still have them. But it's been all about the children, about thanksgiving, and sharing.
Some images of our Christmas this year:
The thrill of the Christmas count down... in a box of chocolates
'Bows, Buttons and Tissue' Christmas wreath project by the girl posted on her bedroom door
We love chocolates... I have Reese's peanut butter-chocolate cups keeping me company
Christmas Eve First encounter : The Girl and The Lechon de Leche
After 6 years, we meet again... get ready to be skinned!
Hooked after my first taste... dense, decadent Queso de Bola Cheesecake (Edam cheese)
Lovely gifts : soothing, aromatic comfort from a teddy bear;
a friend's lovely hand-made choker
Excitement of opening the gifts -- in two batches... Christmas Eve, and Christmas morning
A fantastic new video game the whole family enjoyed

Surprise from Santa on Christmas morning... wishes granted... these smiles are pure joy!
Looking back, I can't believe Christmas is over. Now, we're just a few days shy of welcoming 2012!
