Christmas eve in the rain forest started with a light snow. I was dreaming of a white Christmas.
It was Christmas eve with queeg, pamda, three out of four kids, granny, niece, nephew, brother (pamda's) and sister-in-law, and all four cats gathered around the table for a Christmas feast. (Scenes of the total destruction that followed will be posted later).
But alas the snow has turned to rain this morning. Still, any Christmas Day is a beautiful day. It is, after all, the thoughts that count.
We will be celebrating tomorrow at dad and Kathy's house. The kids insist on opening gifts with them, so we wait. We will leave tonight about midnight.
I hope everyone gets what they want this year. Pam, give mom a hug from us!!
Mgram - Big hug your way too. :O)
Lisa, those yummies are history!
Thomas, Kuki and all to follow - Have a wonderful New Year!

We've closed the bar today so that all our staff may spend the day with their family and friends. Kind of surprised the staff because historically Christmas Day is very busy.
Thomas.. thanks for inventing the new holiday <G> Perhaps it'll catch on... the story of a BIG guy, wearing antlers, bermuda shorts, and an ugly Aloha shirt, delievering cruise documents to everyone who's been good.
Merry Christmas to all from northern Arizona. I can't believe I drove up here right after it snowed! That just shows you how much I wanted to be with my parents for Christmas, because I hate driving in snow! Once you top out on the Mogollon rim, you have about 35 miles of high elevation (translate SNOW) driving before you get to Flagstaff. But the roads had been plowed and the sun had been out all day, so it wasn't too bad and we're here and enjoying a lovely day with my parents and my younger brother and his family. That's what Christms is all about for me - togetherness. Unfortunately, since Jose's family and mine are so far apart, some Christmases are spent in Costa Rica with his kids and some Christmases are here in Arizona with my family, but never with both. But we've had a lovely time, and we are counting our blessings. May all of you, our friends at CruiseMates, be as blessed as we.
