Holiday Fun

*Sorry for the "imposing" song at the slideshow! It came like that and I only noticed it after posting. But you can turn it off by clicking on the trumpet on the left of the slide window!*

After some days of heavy rain and tonsilits, we are finally truly enjoying our vacations. Last Sunday the sun showed up in all its glory, and we went with my older brother Arnaldo and my little niece Maria Clara to enjoy the Crystal Palace and its holiday decoration, to take photos. Then, we went to Santos Dumont's house, the airplane creator, where we took some more photos - they loved the crazy stairs!

It was a good way to celebrate the solstice, under a beautiful weather! In the evening, I lit a candle, said a little prayer and that was it. Lucas was already asleep, exhausted after the long dy of fun. I hope you all had a wonderful Yule night, and tomorrow night you have a sweet Christmas among the ones you love!

Wow, that is an amazing holiday display! What fun! I love the picture of Lucas & your niece with their arms spread wide in front of the giant Santa.

I am so happy for you, getting to spend so much time with your family! I'm glad you were able to do a little something for Yule in the evening. My Solstice was very simple this year, too. Sometimes, simple is nice.

Wow, you guys in Brazil really go in for the BIG Santas! How big is that guy??? LOL! And then there is ANOTHER giant one with GIANT reindeer! So cute! Love the whole slideshow -- my favorite picture though is the one of the kids under the portrait. Hope you are having a lovely holiday!

That happened to me once when I did a slide show too, LOL. I didn't know you could turn it off!

Wonderful solstice photographs, so many memories. I'm sorry to hear that your health there has been a struggle, what a disappointment. Glad things are turning around for you now and that you can finally have even more fun!

Thanks for your support Nydia, it was a hard decision to make. I feel it was the right one though and that I need to embrace change. For the better!
