Merry Christmas everyone! It was so nice to be back in good old California for Christmas this year! The extra warmth of about 20 degrees is such a blessing. As is tradition in my family, we had several good friends over for a big Christmas Eve dinner. Every year, no matter how old we get, we sing Christmas carols including the Twelve Days of Christmas complete with illustrated pieces of cardboard to hold up on the appropriate verse. It was a barrel of fun like always! HO HO HO! Merry Christmas!
