Merry Christmas

We're spending Christmas with our WIN friends in Yuma, AZ.  About 60 of us are gathered in the desert, making merry.  This evening, we had a Christmas celebration with finger foods and Christmas carols.

The WINs are always ready to eat.

And visit.

Here are the festive hat ladies.

A creosote bush was drafted as a Christmas tree.

Our Bagpipe Bob played a few numbers for us.
The sound of a bagpipe is one of my very favorite things, but I have to wonder what the non-WINs in the area are thinking.  "Am I hearing things - are those bagpipes?"

Have you ever heard 'Oh, Come all ye Faithful' on the bagpipes?  It's just beautiful.

And we finished out the evening with carols around the multiple fires.

Meanwhile, I don't think our little Harper was thrilled with Santa.

Happy Holidays 

to all our blogger friends
