This is what I did this morning - it's Wednesday - only a few days until Christmas - and only now am I addressing Christmas cards!
I got up early, made a great cup of coffee, spread all of my Christmas cards out on the floor in front of the tree (with the cats) and got them all addressed. I think friends in Colorado will get theirs on time. To all of you outside of Colorado - I'm sorry!!
Of course, you might notice the complete lack of presents under the tree. I have them all, but they aren't wrapped. I feel bad for my children as they have not been able to shake each one and wonder, but they have reached the age of feigned nonchalance so they haven't given any indication that they care!
In sorting out the cards, I did realize that I had missed one - my sweet little niece! So I popped onto SplitCoast and found that the sketch challenge would work.
My niece, Karina, is a little miracle. My brother and his wife had the loving spirit to adopt her from Russia. She has blossomed into an intelligent, charming, high-energy little girl.
Sadly, we had to leave some amazing Christmas weather behind when we left the mountains:
|This is just the parking lot of our mountain place. It|
snowed the entire time we were there and the
snow plows made incredible "mountains".
|Just seconds after I took the first picture,|
the ground that Erik was standing on
gave way and down he went!
