Wordless Wednesday - Christmas arrives in Denver

Every year Denver lights up the Civic Center and keeps it lit through the Stock Show in January.
Each year it is different and always beautiful and a wonder to see. These were taken a few years ago.

What absolutely stunning pictures! That building is beautiful! Congratulation on your new little great grandie! How fun to have a new baby in the family. There's nothing nicer than a new born snuggling down on your shoulder....and the smell of them is just delicious!!

How is your little great grandson with the transplant? I trust that all is going well with him and for his Mommie, also.

Hello there! I saw your comment on my Blue Monday post, it's nice to meet you! I have had such a hectic week most of which has been away from the computer. I haven't been able to keep up with visiting all the Blue Monday gals!

The lights are just gorgeous! You have a lovely blog - and congratulations on becoming Great Grandparents! My oh my, I am still celebrating the birth of our first grandchild, (5 mos. old yesterday). I can't even imagine how fun it would be to see her have a baby! Wow!

Anyhoo, hope your holiday is coming along nicely, I'm playing catch up as usual but will get it all done! See you soon!
