Another wonderful Christmas! As we watch "A Christmas Story", we were reflecting on how much our view of Christmas has changed. As kids, it seemed like Christmas would never, ever get here. Now it seems to show up in the blink of an eye! And it used to be easy to know what presents to buy; we got a tie for Dad and cookie sheets for Mom. Seriously, we got her more cookie sheets than Tollhouse has.
Now that we are adults, we are so blessed that it can be a challenge to find the right present; everyone we know has everything they want or need. That is an amazingly wonderful situation to be in, except at Christmas.
So the Christmas experience changes throughout our lives, and we start new traditions. For example, the traditional Christmas breakfast in our household is smoked salmon on bagels with cream cheese, capers and red onions. Randy smokes the salmon himself, and it is an amazing way to start the day!
So Merry Christmas to all!
