Buster made an evening of Moms, pork roast, twinkly lights, stars, wine, cheese cake and melodies promising that soon all our troubles will be "far away"; extra special across the street at Michel and André's. He was a trooper; gladly sitting for photos, donning his Santa hat, and snuggling into everyone's lap. We stopped when Michel suggested we try the wine bottle Christmas vest on him. He probably would have obliged us that one too. He's my boy.
Even though Andreé's Mom lives out of town, Michel's and mine joined us for the evening. We agreed that Michel and André make any evening special, but they are particulary wonderful during the holidays.
André and I were talking about just sitting in this room and soaking up the spirit of the season. It made me want to send everyone away, turn off all the lights, and snuggle into my chair under a comforter with Buster and a glass of red wine. It was not to be.
Happy Holidays to all and special thanks to Michel and André (and of course my Buster) for helping us make more magical memories during the holdiays and always!
