The past three weeks have melted away but not without notice. We celebrated Christmas a bit differently this year due to my work. We didn't have everyone over, or put up a big tree, or go beyond our limits. What we did do was take the party to Mt. Hood, and to a lovely rented home. The house was clean when we arrived and ready for us! All of our kids made the drive up to where we were and we are so thankful they did. We won't do this every year but it is a good alternative when time is limited. We stayed two nights and drove home to our clean house....well.....somewhat clean house. :)
Now, here it is New Years Eve and we are looking forward to many more delightful times ahead!
We are thankful for the bounty of family and loved ones in our lives!
