Better Late than Never!

Apparently I am on Bahamas Local time and I do everything a little late.  Either that or I have been cooking too much to do much blogging.  Maybe a little of both.

Merry Christmas!

We are back in business with our trusty laptop and have the ability to post pictures.  Now I just need to go through the 673 pictures that I have taken in December.

Before I get to Christmas, I need to recall what we did before the big day.

We did the Junior Junkanoo.  It is hard to describe other than  that it is like a Bahamian Mardi Gras.  There is music, costumes, dancing and revelry of all sorts. Most of my pictures are blurry, but that is fitting since it is a little dizzying to be there! The boys got to stay up until 10:00 p.m.  Didn't make them sleep any later, though!






Allen and I were honored to attend a really special Christmas party.  We met Sean Connery there.  My sweetie is way better looking, though!




Jackson did a great job at his Christmas Concert.




Here in the Bahamas, they really know how to do a school event!  They had it in the evening and as a fundraiser they were serving serving adult refreshments before the concert.

The Bug and the Butterbean wore hats at every possible opportunity!  Butterbean even added a (yogurt) beard to complete the look.



Somewhere in there we ended up hosting Allen's work Christmas party.  We had about 30 minutes notice.  It all worked out fine, but next year, I'll leave it to the pros!

Our house was decorated.











The tree sure does look crooked and I can assure you it probably was!  This was our first artificial tree and it may be a long time before we go back to having a real tree.  So easy!!  Somehow our angel didn't make the voyage.  She must be enjoying her time in storage.


 I was inspired by Anna's hats on her silhouettes and even made one for ours!  It was meant to be since I had the collection of Santas on the console table and the silhouette at the other end.  I think it is perfection!


A few days before Christmas Allen's family came to celebrate with us.  The boys got so much attention, that they'll never be the same!  we hit five beaches while they were here and did downtown Nassau.  If you've ever done downtown Nassau once, I'm sure that was enough.  I think I'm set for the next 821 months.

I am being seized by the need to organize the entire house, so it may take me a few days to get to our Christmas pictures, but they are coming!  Oh, and before I organize the entire house, I need to organize my pictures.  Or maybe I will go with my other desire to finish off all the chocolate in the house, you never know.

  1. Your decorations look so festive (and of course I LOVE the hat!). I also think you totally rocked the big flower- it, and you, look great!
