Christmas 2012

Chirstmas 2012 was spent in New York and Pennsylvania this year.

First, of course, we had to have our annual photo shoot and selected our favorites - they are at the end:

My PetsJubilee family on etsy are filled with wonderful people many of whom exchanged gifts, including our secret santa:

I would say the Christmas fesitivities started on Christmas Eve at work, because I took the dogs to work that day, all dressed in their Christmas sweaters and jingle bell collars.
I am sure Giupetto and Gianna had lots of fun. They visited the other offices, and they hung out on my chair and on my desk.
We brought in pizza for lunch in the conference room, and they made friends with my boss, who fed them some pizza, carefully blowing on each piece to make sure it was cool enough for the dogs to eat.

Christmas eve after work we went out to dinner with the family and then went back to John's son's house, where we exchanged gifts. Included in these following pictures is a blanket my DIL Joy had made for us with some great pictures, including pics of Giupetto and Gianna with thier kids. I just love it. I love all of my gifts.

I hope you have enjoyed my collection of Christmas photos.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
May the peace, love and joy of the season stay with you throughout 2013.

  3. Diana - I loved all of the videos. You did such a great job making them, and the photos you selected were all just wonderful! I also agree with with Patty and Alice said. That blanket is an absolutely perfect Christmas present, and my favorite photos of the G's were on the stairs in the first video. They looked like they were posing. So precious! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!
