We had a great time at the Willows on Christmas.  The buffet was excellent and very satisfying.  Some of us went wild over the crab and lobster.  We love the Willows because of its ambiance.

Here we are:  (From left) Charles’ girlfriend Toni, Pat’s son Charles, my granddaughter Julia, my daughter Maria, David, me, my grandson Rylan, Maria’s husband Grant, my daughter Lisa, Pat’s daughter Kanani, and my sister in law Pat:

It was pleasant getting together with my brother’s family for Christmas.  I often think about Dathan and wish he were still alive.  He passed away in 2003.

Life is short, isn’t it?

    I wish you would post pictures of the food you ate at the willows. I have never eaten their buffet, but I hear good things about the restaurant.

    Such a nice family gathering, and at a restaurant, too. Very smart. I’m glad that you include your sister-in-law and family. Often, after a death, the family splinters away. Or, at least, that’s what has happened in my family.

    I’m enjoying reading about and seeing how everybody celebrated Christmas. After the last two days, the no cooking part of yours appeals to me!
