Christmas In The City


This is a little Merry Christmas from
Me to Me!
It isn't one of the big boys like a lot of you bloggers have,
but it is perfect for me!
I am so excited to learn more about it.
Both my oldest son (whom I bought it from)
 and his girlfriend know a lot 
about photography and cameras,
so I am hoping that they will teach me lots!
The City
My oldest lives in Chicago and had to work 
on Christmas Eve and he couldn't come home.
So, instead, we went to him!
Some friends so generously lent us their condo.
It was so beautiful and cozy.
We loved it!

Our view from the 33rd floor.

I brought along a little Christmas tree.
Christmas morning needs a tree!
My sister and her family, 
along with my oldest son and his girlfriend,  Jess,
met us downtown for the afternoon .
We had lunch together and then went shopping.
Soooo Funnnn!!!

We were also blessed to spend some time with 
Jessica's mom on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning,

It was a wonderful family time!

Hope your Christmas and New Year's was
And, here's to
it is going to be a great year!

Love & Prayers,
