Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah!

The kids are vibrating with excitement, and we have just come home from the Christmas Eve service.  I am also thrilled to let you know that sweet, little Noah is home for Christmas!!re  He is still a pretty sick little guy, but has some great meds and so his Christmas miracle is that he gets to be home.

I am off now to celebrate for the next few hours with our family.  I am grateful and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life, and that my children are healthy and relatively well-behaved.  I am thinking of all of you who have lost dear ones, and who are remembering sweet days with them.  Time slips past us, and may we closely embrace the ones near us now.  

Merry Christmas to all!
