Merry Christmas!

I'll be taking a week or so away from the computer
 to spend some sweet time doing some of my favorite things
with my family and friends

Making brunch with Mom on Christmas Eve

Last year's blueberry scones, spinach and bacon quiche 
and bacon wrapped shrimp skewers.

Last minute shopping
movies and hot chocolate
Christmas light viewing

The other people at the walk-through light park thought we were CRAZY
but I'd say we were jolly
or joyful
or spirited.

Watching It's A Wonderful Life 
and crying tears of gratefulness for everything I've been blessed with
(seriously, ever year there are tears)

And some restful time off with these lovely people!
my parents and sister

my extended family
with my favorite three little girls in the world 

who give the best makeovers

And the sweet Valdez family
who treats me like their own

And most of all, time to meditate on and celebrate
the hope that came to earth as a baby 
and the hope I have that He's coming again!

Wishing peace and joy to all of your families this Christmas
