The Time is Near
It's shivery in Colorado! Our Christmas tree this year is covered in snow. We have one for the little animals who visit our yard and one for all the neighbors.
Hanging from our chandelier is a wonderful creche made by our dear French friends, Sophie and Benedikt. It floats with each breeze that passes.
Our wreath is silhouetted in the window framing our snow covered yard.
Ah, but tomorrow, with our bags packed, we will be on our way to England. Molly is having all of us for the Christmas holiday. And after Boxing Day, we will go to France with Amy and Matt. I think they have some vineyard pruning parties planned.
We will miss going to NORAD and reporting to the children (and some big childrentoo) Santa's location in the world. On Christmas Eve, follow Santa on his journey at noradsanta.org And if you have time call and get an up to the minute location of his sleigh.
Last year, sitting in the airport parking lot, our dear friends, Kathy and Pete brought champagne to toast the holiday season. Maybe tomorrow????
More adventures are ahead of us. Christmas in England is an adventure in itself.
My letter has been written to Santa and mailed. I did want him to know where we will be this year.
