A Lotta Christmas Cheer!

Gentle Friends, so this first weekend of the Christmas Season started us off with a bang and two Parties back to back... Saturday evening we headed over to Alamo Square and our friends from forever Chris and Mo and their lovely Historic Home decked out for the holidays..
here are some shots...

...


... you can't really see it but on the sideboard are some of the pastries and Chris made his Stollen again, so delicious and filled with marzipan!!



... Mo tried something al little different this year while lighting the tree.  He started off with the tree dark and the candles slowly illuminated the tree... usually, he leaves the bubble lights on and after the candles are lit he turns them off... I like the slow illumination...

... and once they are all lit it was a treat to see!!  This shot is from the back parlour...

Then Sunday evening we headed over to friends home in the Castro...

... Adam had decorated the front of his building so the festive spirit started even befor ascending to his apartment...


...I love these feather wreaths....

... his apartment was packed to the gills with people so there was no clear shot of anything... but you get the idea, a lovely tree he looked all over town for...

... and I headed back into the kitchen, there was an open window I was aiming for, fresh air was at a premium!!  From left to right... Adam's mom, Becky, his stepdad, Mo, Daniel, Naidi, Mike, Mike and Matt....the window you can't see is to the left...

... and I'll wrap up the post with another shot of Mo and Chris' tree with just the bubble lights a'going.... it's a beautiful tree once again!!
