Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night….

Wow, what a great Christmas!  In the blink of an eye, another Christmas has come and gone and we will soon start another new year.   As I reflect back on the year, I can’t help but feel blessed!    I am surrounded by amazing family and friends and exciting job that I look forward to each day…but I think to be able to live a fun and creative life everyday is the best gift of all.

christmas eve

Another tradition of ours, reading stories by the light of the Christmas tree. This years selections were "The Polar Express" and "The Night Before Christmas" then it was off to bed, with sugar plums dancing in their heads.
