A Friend’s Christmas Day

Tweet I thought some of you might like to see my friend’s Christmas Day. She lives in the southern part of the central US. On Christmas Day, there were four generations of her family in one house!

My Holiday

Tweet If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’m in Arkansas visiting my parents for Christmas. Today is Christmas Eve. During the last day or two, we’ve been shopping and so on. Santa Claus is in the middle of this photo, but he’s hard to see! On the right, people are lined up. They […] [...]

Wildflowers
