My entire family (my parents as well as 23yo Eric, 20yo Emily, and 18yo Julia) arrived on Christmas Eve to spend the holidays with us. We hunkered down at home before the fire, playing games and talking, sipping mugs of tea and eating Christmas party leftover goodies, cooking up delicious meals and playing with little Lena. I shared a few home-for-the-holidays photos here.
These are a few more choice photos from my “real” camera.

Taormina is one of my favorite places in Sicily, as you might remember from this visit or this visit.
