I hope my readers enjoyed their Festivus, Christmas or Hanukkah. For the record, I celebrate Christmas with elements of Festivus mixed in for extra goodness.
I’m finally unwinding from a whirlwind weekend of family, food and lots of love sprinkled with wrapping paper and sparkly ribbon. Believe it or not during holiday gatherings I prefer to put the camera down in order to immerse in the moment without the distraction of a viewfinder. Who am I kidding, I’m too busy wrapping, cooking and caroling to stop and take a few proper pictures.
On the food front, this Christmas season was marked by a tremendous cookie failure. I consider myself a talented cook, but baking tends to be formidable challenge. I see a pile of flour – and I see a pile of flour – not the cookie within. My plan to recreate the Morton Family Strata for Christmas Day breakfast fell to the wayside and has been rescheduled for New Year’s Day.
I was blessed with some very nice gifts this year, yet memories I really treasure (outside the surprise of a pretty blue boxed gift) was the time spent caroling with my nephew and sharing gift ‘secrets’ with my niece.
It looks like my good blogging buddy Jimmie Bise shares the same musical Christmas tradition
What fun memories do you have of this season? Let me know in the comment section.
