Great Pics...I too love Cherries at Christmas time. I saw some over here imported from Australia. Kicking myself that I never purchased some now...

Your Christmas looked sensational...

I am so sorry for the bush fires and those that have suffered this tragedy. My community is suffering as well. Twenty miles from my home Flight 3407 crashed to the ground killing 50 innocent people. We are at a loss to say the least. God bless us all!!!
