This is what I’ve been up to the past week.
My girls are home from college and its a delight to see them. I have truly missed them. This is an older picture. My middle boy is now taller than I am. Christmas at our house involves lots of music, a little bit more good food than usual, and almost no shopping at all so it’s a joyful time.
I’m the stingiest/meanest mother in the world and the kids are only allowed to ask for one modest gift. They get exactly what they ask for so there are no surprises. Poor things. They have never known any different and so far there haven’t been any complaints. We do service throughout the month so they see that Christmas is about giving and helping and making the world a better place. If you have a moment click this link and watch my favorite video about bringing the spirit of Christ into Christmas. It’s a sweet, and rather unusual christmas pageant.
So Merry Christmas to you and yours!
No matter what your belief, I think we all share a wish for love and peace and a better world. Mother Theresa said “Let no one come to you without leaving better and happier.” We can do that!

(and to all the patiently waiting previous winners – everything is packaged up – I just haven’t been able to make myself brave the post office yet. I’m sending most of the books media mail and you have to take those in. I promise I’ll get there – eventually!)
