2016 Good Bye Bye Bye Bye

The Pope and Puppy when she was here this year. We had a wonderful visit with her and her Mother but as usual the day went too fast. 
Mimi getting ready to unwrap the first round of presents. The living room blows up with wrapping paper, bags and bows three times each Christmas. This photo was during The Pope's visit.
Yesterday Puppy and Prince helped me pack the decorations away and take down the tree. I try to always set out the tatting Christmas tree that my good ole friend, JOT grandmother,Katheen Reese made. Kathleen died in 2003 just a few weeks before she would have turned 102.The tree is another of my treasures. 
Maggie could not wait to unload her stocking. She got a giant hedgehog and a three foot fox. It is funny because the fox appears in different rooms everyday. Cricket's back and head were visible and she was wondering where her toys were. Her Mom came in and gave her a little bear and she was happy. Then she got a little star wars creature from Maggie. 
We had clouds for a few days and then the sun appeared. Today is Friday the 30th and we awoke to below freezing temperatures but lots of sun and a sky so clear you wonder where the clouds have gone. 
The Kitty Justice is that it appears to be warmer than it is as you look out at the golden sunshine but step out side and the tears will be blown from your eyes.

It takes a lot of work to decorate the tree and the house, and then to take off the decorations and store them. However, people do it willingly and with pleasure, both for themselves and for the guests. After all, Christmas is only once a year, so no big deal.
Besides, it seems you're not alone in this. Puppy is of great help.

And another year passes...and memories abound.

I hope 2017 treats you and yours kindly, Lady Di.

And I hope 2017 is a better year for everyone throughout this muddled world of ours.

You are always wise and correct. Puppy is great help and my Prince is too. Peace

Love your the statement "Muddled world of our" No truer statement has been made. Maybe everyone will take the key from the song Humble and Kind. It would make 2017 and nicer place to be. Peace

Hope 2017 is wonderful year for you and yours. Peace
