Making Memories

 Holidays are a time for
bringing together family and friends.

Our family celebrated Christmas 
early this year.
Scheduling everyone's availability
is often challenging
but we made it work.

My Florida kids
arrived and

the other families came
 from much nearer destinations.

We didn't do anything fancy
or complicated.

Took walks

made pies,
gave kisses

 and wore
new Christmas jammies.

It was more than opening presents

although that was fun.

It was just being together.
