The Things Christmas Brought

Family
Thank God for Skype!


Creativity
Crafty presents from my Mom from my family's annual gift exchange, Secret Santa style.


Tradition
We watch them every winter.
(Meet Me in St. Louis counts as a Christmas film to us.)


Joy
I love getting holiday cards, photos, and newsletters.
Our holiday card holder was overflowing this year!


Gratitude
A surprise from my bosses.  Cayman Island rum cake and a holiday bonus!


Fellowship
We were invited to our neighbor's family gathering.  
(I didn't feel comfortable taking pictures, but it was a
lovely evening of delicious food and fun conversation.)


I hope you had a joyous Christmas, Hanukkah, or Tuesday.  :)

Merry {belated} Christmas Lindsay! I'm sorry you couldn't see your family this year, but I love how positive you are about it! Skype really is a lifesaver sometimes ;)

Have a beautiful weekend my dear!

Merry Christmas Lindsay! I love your holiday movie collection. I need to get some of those myself. And it's really nice to know the people you work for appreciate you. Hope your cats enjoyed the holidays as well.

Yes thank God for skype! I just moved to Australia, and there is no better way to stay in touch with friends and family overseas.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
And Happy New Year!
