I wish all my friends and readers a Merry Christmas. And I hope that the New Year will be filled with with happiness and wonder.
With the holidays upon us, many of you will be spending time with loved ones and friends. I wish you safe journeys, no matter the destination.
On a personal note: Sandy and I are blessed with one daughter; our daughter and son–in-law have six girls, with a seventh child on its way, due in May. We are thankful for having them close by — as it has become a tradition, they will be joining us on Christmas morning, to open the packages that found their way under the beautiful tree.
We are expecting a white Christmas. It will be another wonderful time!
Credits: The train engine tree ornament is part of a collection of limited-edition engines and train cars made by K.D, my brother-in-law over several years. He used native woods — and exercised much patience along the way. And also showed terrific woodworking skill!
