Christmas Day in Hollister, 2011


Christmas Day in Hollister, 2011


We, Nancy, Allison and I, celebrated Christmas Day, 2011, at the cabin in Branson/Hollister today. Nancy had the turkey in the oven as we enjoyed a light breakfast: Allison made the banana bread and fruit salad. Yum!  ;-)


Allison was pleased to start opening gifts from under the tree. She enjoyed receiving quite a number of outfits in her new, smaller sizes.


Books were common for Bill and Nancy. Here, Nancy had opened hers, Bill is showing the pretty wrapping paper.


Bill thought Nancy's 'package' under the tree for the book she got him on his kindle was very clever - a piece of paper printed off the computer of the book cover...  ;-)


Nancy got her shawl at a craft booth at Silver Dollar City, so she has shown a lot of patience waiting until Christmas to model it, from under the tree.


After opening our packages, Allison asked me to take some photos of her, for her records, both indoors and outdoors. I'll just share one, here - I liked it.


OK, one from outside, too:


Turkey dinner, Allison and Nancy:


Allison said I needed to be in one, as well:



It was a very good day!  ;-)
