Well, because my husband and I are getting very close to being empty nesters and our children are mostly all adults. We are in a transition period when it comes to the holidays. This Christmas, there was only one tiny child with us, Baby Adrian. He was a joy! Our other grandchildren are still in Kansas with their parents and they enjoyed a cold Christmas in Topeka! We missed them and our traditions were very different than the ones we have honored over the past 35 years. But we still had a wonderful time. Here is a picture story about our holiday fun. (At least the parts we remembered to photograph!)
We are so blessed. My New Year Resolution is to be thankful everyday for these blessings in my life. I will try my hardest to complain a little less and to love a little more. I will give thanks to my Heavenly Father unceasingly because I know that it is from Him that my blessings come. Love is the best gift of all. Happy New Year everyone!
