Happy Holidays!

Whew! It was a lot of work But I'm Done -- Got the tree up!!

I just love the smell of pine!
Hope this made you smile like it did me. 
In all seriousness, whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or another holiday I don't know about, I wish you the very best this season.  May peace and joy fill your hearts, may you enjoy whatever traditions you have, and may you have the best the New Year can offer.
We celebrate Christmas by spending it with family.  We'll get together with my children and grandchildren, and it's always fun to watch the little ones' eye's grow big and wide with excitement as they open presents and play with their cousins.
I have much to be thankful for.  I have a loving husband, wonderful family, healthy grandchildren, and can still spend tine with my father who is healthy and doing well at age 86.  I have a comfortable home, a rambuctious yellow lab, many, many friends, and the list goes on.  Too much to list, but suffice it to say, I'm very blessed. 
I wish you a very Merry Christmas -- A Happy Holiday Season -- and the very best as we start 2013!
