This was our anniversary present to each other.... not Hawaii yet;an appetizer for next year.. right? It was a nice, much needed, restful 2 days for us. We left on Friday and returned on Sunday.
Friday night we went to the Nutcracker Ballet, which was a first for me; I have never been before... I feel as if I have been missing out on a lovely tradition all these years. It was a delightful evening. Three special little girls who are the daughters of our friends were in the ballet, which was what made it the most wonderful of all. Not only that, but we bought the tickets at the last minute, but ended up with seats right behind our friends and their family, out of a crowd of so many, that was remarkable. With that joy to launch us, the Christmas Spirit is rising in us now, and I feel the desire to get the tree out and decorate it tomorrow... if Steve and I can figure out how to get the tree out of the attic now that Steve is "out of sorts". Steve doesn't even think Eddie can extract that tree this time, so we might have to get our neighbor to come over and help. Hope you have a wonderful week everyone. I pray the delights that belong to the Christmas Season be yours.
