A Very Merry Christmas

I was talking with my friends the Vistaunets about Christmas plans and they mentioned that one of their daughters was spending the holiday with her new in laws. It's a happy, wonderful thing but struck me that this time in my life, with all of my kittens here at home, isn't how it will always be. I grew up with with traditions that felt like forever and they are ingrained in my memory thank goodness. This year I didn't even see my cousins and I missed them, but I'm grateful for those memories.
I focused and enjoyed the good and the not so good of every minute of being with my family for Christmas. I loved it and to make extra sure I don't forget, I started a new tradition. It's a Christmas book for us to write in every year. I want to say scrapbook but when say scrapbook, a totally different image pops into my mind, but really it is a scrapbook. We added photos and we wrote. Now we can look at it next year and feel all warm and nice.

My Christmas decor is already put away. I'm ready for a clean, fresh, happy, new year.
