Sometimes the best family to spend holidays with is your chosen family of friends.

Berta and Jim

Berta, a restaurant owner and cook in a past life, put together one of those best of Sundays family meal of pot roast with carrots, potatoes, onions, and garlic with side dishes and a fruit torte for desert.

When I walked into her house the aroma instantly caused me to drool.  No photos it was too yummy to stop for the camera.

Donna brought a re-gift for Berta and we couldn’t stop laughing while Jim tried to help put the wire legs on these flamingos.

Just the four of us, plus Sara, sharing a meal and loving friendship.  For me, that’s what Christmas is all about.  Sharing and love.

    Oh Gaelyn, thank you so much for the photos. I was there in spirit and hope to be in Arizona by mid January. When are you leaving for South Africa?
