Happy Pink Christmas Saturday!!

Well, my pinkie blogging buddies, it's that time again, when we bring out all the girlie pink.  We have Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, to thank for this wonderful Pink event.  Be sure and visit her site and go visit some of the lovely pink posts.  You'll be glad that you did.
This Special Pink Saturday, we are to talk about Holiday traditions.  So, I'll do that in a minute, but first I'll just show you a few pink sights from around my home.

The entry to my bedroom with my favorite venetian mirror and pink flowers, of course!




My little white tree with pink balls is sitting in the bedroom.  Gabby thinks it's lovely!


A pink squeeky toy for my sister's little doggie....


My Sister's Christmas gift....see the pink peeking through....shhhhhh.....it's a secret!




Little teacup Christmas trees.....




My bunny socks that I just received from my Sister, aren't they cute!



Ok, enough with the pink already.  On to the family tradition.

Every year on Christmas Eve, our family picks a different restaurant for a late Christmas Eve lunch.  We literally pig-out and have so much fun.  Then, we go home and gather around the Christmas tree and open one gift.

I wish all of you, my dear friends, the best Holiday ever!
May all your wishes and dreams come true and may you enjoy the love
of family and friends.

God Bless

~~~Hugs and Kisses, and Merry Christmas~~~

Happy Pink Saturday Sweet Sissie...
What eye candy pinks. Now I have to tell you, I am sure lovin those little socks. Cute bunny faces and little furry tops. How sweet are they. And ofcourse that Gabby and her facination with the twinkly things. What will she do when all of the decorations are put away? Lovin the little teacup trees. Adorable and now I want to know just what is in the shopping bag for Sis that is pink? Lovin the bag.

Thank you for sharing the beautiful tradition. I so love that. I wonder what's for "Dinner" this year? Can't wait to find out.

Oh sweetie, thanks for sharing today. I so love it when you do. I'll have my pink post up later tonight. It isn't ready, just got home from work a little bit ago.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

I think your Gaby looks like our Emmett :)Your tradition is perfect; way to sit back and ease into Christmas after the business of Christmas preparation. :D

I'd love to hear from you. Regarding the pink Christmas houses, I'm holding onto them for now, but one day soon I'll part with them to give someone else a chance to enjoy their beauty. I'm always shopping, so I'll keep my eyes open for more!
