Both Saturday Photohunts: Drinks and Gather

When I look at this cabinet with some of my glassware for drinks, I am reminded of when my parents were alive and we would gather at their house for Christmas.
I think the shot below with my mother and a family friend was 1989 which was her last Christmas before her stroke and subsequent death. Much of the crystal and glassware from my parents is now at my house.
The next shot was around 1994 at my parents' although only my Dad was alive of my two parents. My daughter is sitting on one of my sister's lap.
The birds like to gather at my deck and front yard bird baths for drinks. The shot below is one of my front yard baths this summer with juvenile American robins.
