Merry Christmas to all!

You know me and the holidays...

Dad, Christmas 1998 (I think)

However, this year, I've been more like this:

Connor, Christmas 1999

Things will be looking up tomorrow, Christmas Day.  I have a direct flight to Albany at 4:35. I won't get in until way after midnight so I'll miss Christmas, but Connor's 14th birthday is on December 26, and that's the real holiday for me!  I can't believe he's 14.  Freaks me out.  And of course, I can't wait to get my hands on his sister, the Most Serious Baby on Earth.

I'll be in the Albany tundra for two weeks--not the best time of the year to spend in the Northeast, but I got a great fare ($260 round trip) and could travel only on certain days.  No matter.  I'm psyched to be seeing everyone--it's been since August. 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and am so very thankful for everyone who stops by here.

I feel the same about Christmas as you do.
This is our first winter away from Toronto and we are spending it in Las Vegas!

you're right about the tundra, but that is a screaming good price on plane tickets!

Being here with my grandson for the holiday makes it all worth while, and to think you get to celebrate Connor's 14th -- "young man" -- and that seriously cute redheaded doll. Wa-hoo!

Merry Christmas, Linda, dear blog buddy and fellow traveler.

(you needed me to tell you that Linda!)
Spending time with family and loved ones is what makes Christmas.
Merry Christmas Linda!
