December 10, 2021 Christmas 2021

"Twas 2 weeks before Christmas, and all through the house....."
"The stockings were hung, 
the packages were wrapped,
the food was prepared,
and my family was trapped😁😁😁,,,"(at least for a few hours).
Family Christmas 2021, 3 birthday celebrations, and a few surprise visitors took place Friday, December 10, 2021.....HERE.... at Casa de Sharpley!πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„
S&B, W&S, and L&A 'outshined' Dasher, Dancer and Prancer.
Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen took a back seat to the 5 Grands.
Poor Rudolph Bear!πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡(as in BEAR, the chocolate lab who has his own Instagram page!)
Ribbons, wrappings, gift cards and packages flew through the air with the greatest of ease. (One would think that this process had been done before!)

Two members of our dynasty were unable to make an appearance.
They were missed.
It was, none the less, paramount that their presence be known.
I think my family would agree that these 2 πŸ‘†πŸ‘† added a great amount of joy and laughter to the evening. Their presence was duly noted throughout the evening!

As in years past, we celebrated 3 December birthdays. Happy Birthday, you three! 

"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful....." (This was the best we could provide with 70 degree temps!) And the stockings weren't really hung by the chimney with care, either! 
We love our time with family:
At the dinner table; 
Piled on top of PAPA;
Special photo ops;

And trying in sincere desperation πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ to achieve the 'family' photo!
The evening concluded with a drive-by to nearby Raleigh Court light shows
And ended with a tour of the newly purchased home of W&S!
Thank you to my family for making my heart over flow with thankfulness, and gratefulness! 
Merry Christmas 2021
