We hosted the annual Westcott Christmas Eve brunch, which has been going on in some form since we were kids, I suppose. My siblings and I meet, with our families, and the menu rarely veers too far from custard, bacon, cheese fondue casserole, and fruit salad. This year my son and fam were unable to make it - life is hectic for them, having a very young baby just getting over her first cold. But they did arrive later, thank heavens.
When it was time to take the annual family photo, no one brought a camera! But we figured out the iPhone timer and leaned it up against a potted plant, lol.
We also miss our late brother, and his family, who live in Roseville and Seattle.
Late afternoon, we greeted Warren, Cia, Valentina and Lily.
Christmas Day photos next post.

I am drowning in photos. All I can do is take a stab at sharing them. This post is just the beginning.Frances Holliday Alford sent me this collage postcard, as a thank you for sending her a quilt block for her 60th birthday.
Santa medley, newly framed turtle mola.
I made these for my granddaughters. Pattern by Ann Wood Handmade, Forest Folk.
The Cooks are here. Sammy asleep by the fire.
Sammy was a great helper for walking the dog. Christmas Eve morning: the festivities are about to begin!

Sorry, dear readers. It's a busy time of year. Here are a few random photos that color my world.
I participated in my friend Barbara's fun holiday boutique last week and was happy with how I did. I brought 5 dogs and sold them all! The birds did well, too.

I'm happy to hear from Victoria Findlay Wolf that she bought my quilt in the Quilt Alliance "Animals We Love" auction! The auction is a fundraiser for the Quilt Alliance.

Warren and Cia's baby arrived on Wednesday about 4:00 pm. Mom and baby are healthy. Her name is Valentina, and she is 6 lbs 14 oz, 18" long.
She has that "what just happened?" look on her tiny face. I assume that is her dad's thumb she is clutching.
This is one of the first photos. I actually created this post before the previous one, on her birth date, but when I edited it, the date automatically changed to the current date. It didn't used to do that. Arrrgh.

I took a great walk today on the path right near my house. It's one of the things I like about Irvine: lots of beautiful walking trails.
