What happened to Christmas?

This was going to go in my Christmas cards, but I never got around to sending any. Oops.
One of the best things we did this Christmas was bake a cake for Jesus. I loved it. It was Marymae's idea and it was a great one. Marymae was very proud of her cake!

I don't know what happened, but Christmas just passed us by. We went through the rig-a-ma-roll of everything--ya know, put up the tree, decorate the house, bake stuff, presents, etc. But, it was almost as if we just went through the motions and "got it done". I was just kinda, ya know, not into Christmas this year. I'm not depressed or anything; I just was ready to be done with it all. I'm ready for summer--swimming pools, beaches, vacation, heat....I think I'm going to send my Christmas cards out this summer too since I didn't get them out at Christmas. Wouldn't that be a nice surprise? I would love to get a Christmas card in July. I'd actually have to time to read it and muse over it rather than glance at it and "get to it later".

Introducing the prettiest, sweetest, little baby girl I've seen in a long time. Eden Avalon Elam (my niece) was born last Sunday (December 27, 2009) in Houston, Tx to Brandon (my baby brother) and Stephanie. Isn't she lovely? I want to bring her home with me! Oh my goodness; she's just so precious. Brandon and Stephanie are doing super! They are great parents--reading up on everything and trying to get a system going with her. Sheridan and I went to Houston the day she was born and then Jerry and I and kids "swung by" on our way home from the cabin yesterday (since Houston is on the way:0)). It was so good to see her and Brandon and Steph. I so wish we could go see them once a month. She's going to grow so fast and I just can't get enough of her.
