Christmas has come and gone. We had good weather, safe travels, and only one person became ill and had to delay spending Christmas with the family, so overall it was all good. As usual, pictures tell the story much better than I could, so enjoy some of my favorite holiday shots.

The oldest & youngest of our family. Two lovely ladies!

Our princess, who it turns out likes soccer balls and cell phones better than dolls.

We've been blessed with wonderful parents, siblings, a houseful of kids and grandkids, and time to spend making memories with them.
Beginning this week, I'll be returning to my regularly scheduled posts about books and writing. First up will be my list of favorite books in 2008 - see you then.
In the meantime, what was your best Christmas memory this year? Don't be shy!

I love the picture of the oldest and youngest ladies in your family. What a treasure!

Best thing about Christmas...I absolutely LOVE the Christmas Eve service at our little church. We had maybe 25 people? All the candlelight, the hush, the expectancy, the music, the gentle reminders of the true reason we're celebrating...sigh. I look forward to that service all year.
