Hello! I hope you're settling in for a happy holiday with your loved ones. Here at Casa del Osos, we're ready to celebrate. The fridge is stocked and the presents are wrapped. There is a Big Snowstorm predicted for the weekend and we're definitely prepared to hunker. The past few days have been spent doing very little, which is exactly what I needed. I feel refreshed and relaxed and ready for the big day.
We're going to watch Elf in a few minutes. I'm thinking about making some popcorn. I've been crocheting a lot, keeping warm under Hensfoot as it grows. The small Bears are just a little manic about Santa coming in less than 33 hours (as per the latest update), and the Bear has been teaching himself to play this song on the guitar, just for me. It's one of my favorite songs, ever since high school. Now that's a Christmas present.
Thank you for your kind words on my last post. I try to be upbeat here, but sometimes it's important to offer some background. This is a happy place but it's a reflection of regular life too, which isn't picture-perfect. It makes me glad to know that you are thinking of me and my family. I'm so proud of our life together and I love sharing it with you.
A merry Christmas, full of warmth and love, to you from all of us!
