'Twas the Night After Christmas

Red Barn North of Colfax, WI

I was going to write a post about New Year's resolutions, but having just returned home from a Christmas party with friends and another get-together with family coming up next week, I realized that I'm in no mood to be making commitments to a sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free life - at least not at this moment.

Instead, I'll watch Perry Mason on the television and go to bed. Maybe by the end of next week I will be able to think about resolutions.


Leaving you this week with a collage of photos. Some were sent to me by family members; some I took. All remind me of Christmas in Wisconsin and family.  Mr. C. doesn't know I took a photo of him and the dog taking a nap together. I couldn't resist it.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Beautiful family photos, love your Mr. C photo with the dog, that's the sort of thing I would do, capture the moment and post it online :)

Sandra said...

all of the collage photos made me smile and it looks like a fantastic Christmas Collage, adorable babies and kids and books ... oh my... my favorite of course is Mr C and the dog

Looks like a joyous occasion for all.
The nap picture reminds me of our cat Smokey sleeping in bed with us. He weighs around 22# and on cold nights I love to have him sleep near my shoulders for warmth, other times he's at our feet.

Happy New Year xoxo

Great pictures. Did you have a white Christmas? Ours was brown but finally got snow last night and the sun is shining today. It's been gloomy for weeks.

podso said...

Fun pictures! That's a great nap photo. And the one of the barn at the beginning is really lovely. Enjoy the week and let the resolutions fall where they may. :-)

Ginny said...

The nap picture is so sweet! The girls playing on the floor in their P.J.s is so precious! And I love your snowman and beautiful snowy picture. To me, Christmas is a time of joy, not restrictions. You can think about dieting later.

Primitive Stars said...

Great pictures, sweet little snowman. Blessings Francine.

Stephanie said...

Judy, I can't begin to think of New Year's resolutions quite yet. Christmas still feels like today. :-)

A beautiful collage! Thank you for sharing with us!

"Happy New Year, Judy." Your photos are great and it looks like you had a grand old time.

Wonderful, festive moments! Thanks for sharing these, Judy! (And let's not talk about those resolutions yet, okay?) ;)

Blondie's Journal said...

Very sweet post, Judy...you sound a bit tired (aren't we all?).

No resolutions right now, we clearly aren't seeing the future very well as we try to clean up the remnants of yesterday (and the day before, etc.!)

Love to you!

Hi Judy,
Just had a nice visit with murker. Fed him up, loved him up.
I'm not ready for thinking of resolutions yet. But I have been given a Watchword: movement. Really? Yoga and moving back to the Jersey Shore maybe? Hummm...
Blessings dear Judy and Merry Third Day of Christmas! :) m & jb
