Christmas Vacation

It’s really late for me to be posting about my Christmas vacation but I thought I’d do it any way. I haven’t been knitting as often as I’d like, nor drinking tea ceremoniously and I’ve had this yearning to just be able to read a little bit. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve had nothing much to blog about – so instead of trying to write something up, I’m just going to post a few photos from my vacation that I took up to Pennsylvania to visit my family.

My dad and step-mom live in Thorndale, PA; my sister & co. live in Bethesda, MA; and my mom lives in McKees Rocks, PA. (Yes, there was a lot of driving done during this trip.) During my visit, my dad and step-mom also took me to New York City for the first time in my life! Needless to say, I saw a lot of new places in the span of two weeks. I tried to take my camera everywhere I went but failed.


There were desserts.

Another stolen shot

Stolen photographs.

Christmas Gift

Gifts galore.

Statue at the Met

Museums full of beautiful art.

Giant Ornaments

Giant ornaments in the street.

And there was waiting for taxis.

Beautiful Sky

There were beautiful skies.

It snowed some more

Tea Time

My mom

And smiles.

I had so much fun with my whole family and the visit just made me miss everyone so much more. I’ll have to travel up there again soon! 🙂

  1. Guess I need to keep up on my reading. Just saw this today. Great photos and I love your commentary. I don’t see dates for your posts. Are they there and I’m just missing them?
    Love, Mom

    1. They’re under the post title. 🙂 This one’s a few years old.
