Blue Christmas...Cliche?

Nope!
Not at all!

Chelsea decorated this year
and she wanted a blue and white
tree. I love it!



And then there was the Christmas English Country Ball on
Saturday evening that had lots of blues to share!



I am sure you can see by these photos that no one had a good time...lol.

So many laughs and sweet fellowship.
I couldn't keep up with the young ones... for sure...
but enjoyed the little bit I danced during the practice time.

Grandma Georgia danced her shoes off!
She is a great dancer!
It is so much fun to see her having a
good time.

Chelsea and Mikey enjoy dancing too,
but Jonathan just watches. That seems
to be enough for him these days.

You can find more photos at Mrs. Rabe's
Creekside Cottage Blog.
She was our wonderful hostess.

Enjoy both the Mosaic Monday and Blue Monday
Posts you can find at the above links!

I love your blue Christmas decor! (It's my favorite color!) The English Country Ball looks like so much fun!!! My sister took Contra Dance lessons and would go to the Scottish ball every Christmas. And my daughter competed in Irish step dancing for 9 years. I really love all the traditional folk music and dance from England Scotland, Ireland etc...

Chelsea did a fantastic job with the blue themed decor. It's lovely -- wintry and rather heavenly looking!

The ball looks like a blast! What fun! And what a great way to really get into the holiday swing of things.

I love the blue and white motif!

Karen June Miller said...

Oh how lovely! And the ball sounds like great fun!

My husband, Bear, is from Reading, PA.. His brother is out here visiting with all of his Reading intensity and Dutch-German quirks. I know it makes Bear miss home, as well as his folks who passed away many years ago. It was fun listening to the two of them reminisce the other night about life in your neck of the woods.

Merry Christmas!
