Day after Christmas

This year, we actually did not get around to opening our Christmas presents till the morning after Christmas. We were really busy Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day. Just wanted to post a few of the pictures we took. You can see our pretty tree and some of our bedouin furniture. Notice the beautiful light fixture. It is one of my favorite things we have purchased here.

You might ask, who is the other boy in the pictures? Well, one of Levi's friends has been staying with us. He is staying for 10 days while his parents are in South Africa for his brother's graduation from University.

All in all, it was a wonderful Christmas holiday. I just wanted to put a quote down that I borrowed from a friend on Facebook. Hope he doesn't mind, but it is the message I would like to send out this and every Christmas.

"The older I get, the less I look for presents for me under a tree -- the more I look for the Presence of the One who died for me on a tree."

Here's wishing all of you out there a wonderful holiday season and a blessed New Year.


  1. I'm so glad you and your family had a wonderful and busy Christmas. You look great in your picture! Much love to you all.

  2. Thanks Dedene! Thanks for popping in!

  3. Looks lovely, Jackie - hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2010 is a good one for you & your family ! xx (P.S. You're looking great in the photo !)

  4. Thanks so much Lynda! We did have a great Christmas, and I hope you and your family have a blessed year in 2010 also.

  5. Amen to the quote, Jackleen. I didn't do anything for Christmas - nothing. I'm still in South Africa and still alone with dh. Thanks for all your kind comments and visits on my blog. I am sorry I've not replied or visite much for the past four months while in SA. I am flying to North Africa next Thursday 7th Jan (whoo-hoo) I cannot wait to join hubby and pick up my life there again. I will also have HEAPS of time to blog, visit and comment on blogs. Till then, have a blessed 2010 and look out for a barge on the Nile sometime next month. I might be on it and coming to see you for tea! (((Hugs))) Jo

  6. That would be awesome! Just let me know. ;o)
