IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS....  The tree is up and Dwight is busy testing the lights.......

 Illumination!!

 "Oooh boy!  Am I gonna have a Christmas Tree romp just like last year?".............

 Mommie is busy decorating, but with her big surgery boot, she needs two stools..........

 Fortunately, the Doctor says the boot might come off in just a few days if the bone is healed...........

 All these preparations can be just exhausting................

 But the next day, the humans are back at it adding to the tree......

Because the out-of-town children are trickling back for the holidays and Bianca is first!--here the Santa Fesanos enjoy a break in shopping to enjoy a lunch in Albuquerque..........

 Baby Binks is delighted to share some quality time with Auntie Sisi......

 And to get some advice from Uncle Danny.............

 Despite all the "La Nina" forecasts, we have actually gotten a good amount of snow in Santa Fe already this winter..........

MERRY CHRISTMAS GREETINGS..................

FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS!    WISHING YOU A SPLENDID CHRISTMAS AND ALL THE BLESSINGS OF THE SEASON!

BINKY'S HERE! BINKY'S HERE!
 And of course, no visit home would be complete without a lunch at The Shed.........

 Where the girls could warm their legs while we await a table........

 Even Grandma doesn't mind waiting for a table at The Shed......

 Sisi peers out from the crowd to see if a table is on hand......

 But the wait is part of the drill at this popular restaurant.......

 When we finally get seated, Frannie regales us with tales of her exciting life..........

 And Artie keeps an eye on Donna to see that she doesn't eat all the food........

Baby Binks gives a pretty pose while Danny checks something on one of his phone's apps.............

 As the lunch progresses, Frannie's life tales become even more fantastic.................

 And the lovebirds look over the menu for dessert.............

 Back home, Winston is all snuggled in and thinks we were foolish to brave the cold just for some food........

 Baby Binks snuggles up to a good book................…
