WHAT A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas weekend.  Mine was lovely!
I started with some baking...I received this scone mix in a giveaway and thought Christmas Eve was the perfect time to try them
Mr ALC and I enjoyed some tea and scones to get our day going...the raspberry white chocolate was delicious! 
A little tea party in front of the Christmas tree
Christmas Eve was spent with my best friends Dennis and Terry...they are like family to me and I have spent many Christmas's with them since my girls are usually in South Ga 
We had a great dinner and watched the movie
"Bridesmaids" which is very funny!
We exchanged some gifts and had a great time as we always do!
This was Tiger Christmas morning at his Grandpa's house.  Except for me all of Sara and Blake's parents and several sets of Grandparents live in South Georgia.  They go there for most big holidays.  I will have a special weekend with them on New Year's when we will celebrate our Christmas also.   I am looking forward to that very much! 
I think this is a sweet family picture
Christmas day was a sweet gift
Quiet time with Mr ALC
Calls from both of my girls
A call to my Mom
A few special presents 
and a wonderful candlelight dinner
I used our Winterberry plates that we bought our first Christmas together
Charlie says it was a wonderful Christmas too!

I am planning some fun end of year posts and hope you will come back to visit soon! 

Hugs, 
Linda

A quiet and relaxed Christmas is not a bad thing. And you still have Tiger's big day to look forward to.

I always enjoy my visits with you.

Hi Linda,
I love scones and yours look wonderful on those pretty plates. Little Tiger is just the cutest as are his Mom and Dad. I just love his little toes.

And look at that pretty boy Charlie. My Gizzy and Gabby are going to love seeing his sweet face.
