Gratitude Monday --Merry ChristMays Edition

What's Christmas without a picnic?

We had our Christmas with our friends Bob and Sylvia over the weekend.
It was our latest observance yet, but between commitments and vacations, this was the first opportunity.
We pounced on it.
We had roasted turkey with all the usual suspects Saturday night including German Red Cabbage made by Sylvia.
Sunday was a beautiful spring day. We threw together a picnic with the turkey leftovers and other goodies and went to the National Historic Site.
We walked the trails and down by the river enjoying the sun, the park, the birds, and the company. It was a perfect day and for it, and the Christmas weekend, I am grateful.

Happy Christmas in May!

Good for you, celebrating when you can, not worrying what the calendar says or stressing because it's the "wrong" date.

Messymimi, I hope I never get so hung up that it's the right date or not at all. I'd miss out on so much.

So was this also Mothers' Day and Christmas or another date? Many families celebrate Christmas on other days and it works well.

This was our Christmas, Red. It simply fell on Mother's Day.

Very cool. A belated Merry Christmas to you. :)

Thanks, Hilary.

Looks like a wonderful day for a picnic too.
