Henry the Airedale’s First Christmas With His Family

Henry the Airedale

Jack, Anna, Michael, Maura and Henry the Airedale

Henry seems to be enjoying the festivities so far.  Even tolerated enjoyed kept the Santa hat on for the photo session.  He was sniffing around the presents under the tree, looking for squeaky toys and Kongs, Bully Sticks and such.

The grandchildren fell asleep pretty fast and now, so should I.

Matthew already here from Croatia and Laura and James arrive from Centerline in the morning for breakfast.  Erika’s parents are here, too.  Having everyone together is the best part of Christmas to me.  (And we’re getting along nicely, too!) No small task with so many of us under one roof.

Ate some wonderful Polish food Donald prepared tonight for Polish Christmas Eve.  Homemade Kielbasa and Haluski and Pierogis and then we gathered in a circle while we shared Oplatki, the Christmas wafer.  Donald did a great job as Patriarch, leading the ritual.

Wishing all blog readers a good day, whatever you’re celebrating or not.  I appreciate all the lovely greetings I’ve received.

  2. Merry Christmas Ruth to you and your family. Great photo, Henry’s expression is priceless. Made me chuckle. The children are precious , as always.

  3. Warm wishes for a great holiday season with Henry and those darling children. The food sounds so good. God bless.
