May Your Days Be Merry

paper roll ornament

Wishing you Peace Love and Joy in 2008.

we are scurrying about preparing for our first annual neighbourhood progressive dinner on friday night (we are in charge of the "main course"); a trip to see the los angeles ballet perform the nutcracker on saturday; a belated family hanukah party on sunday (hard to believe i have nieces who are in college! hence the party had to be rescheduled to cooincide with winter break), a traditional mexican christmas eve with friends and neighbours (the two are really the same) on monday; and of course the big day on tuesday (dinner at sam's - can't wait!); then off to "our island" on wednesday (oh i hope the weather cooperates and maybe we can even fit in a pit-stop with these lovelies!).

See you in the New Year!

p.s. just got an email that I received a Lowe's Toolbox Grant for our school - yay!!! yes, 2008 looks to be a good one... xo

Merry Christmas to you too, my dear! We're heading to Bdn on the morning of the 25th, so we'll have to try and squeeze in a conversation sometime before you take off.

Much love and happiness for the holidays!

the first two years we lived in our neighborhood, our street did a progressive christmas dinner. they had been doing it for more than 10 years! we were so excited and loved it. then several people moved away, the main party planners and we stopped having it. for several years now my new neighbors have been talking about doing it again, i think i will have to help plan it... maybe next year? it was such a nice tradition! have fun at yours! and i cant wait for photos of the island and your trip, happy holidays!

Ah - have a wonderful time on the island. We are in Austin now, causing us to miss our beloved Bowen and the PNW even more than before!
Cheers and Happy New Year!
