It was a rare treat to have The Husband home on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We joined with our next door friends on Christmas Eve and had Christmas brunch at mom and dad's Christmas morning. Things were quiet and simple...............a blessing to be with family and friends as we celebrated Jesus birth.
Sunday brought a surprise birthday party for another of our neighbors who turned 40 on Christmas day. This year for sure he didn't get his birthday ignored, just because it falls on Christmas. A wonderful time was had by all.
So now we stand outside the door or 2011. A new decade begins. Always a time of reflections and new beginnings.
