Christmas Withdrawal

Zoolou always in the middle of everything!
Ready to break our Christmas Crackers~an English tradition!

All the GIRLS! (me on the left)

Is Christmas really over ALREADY? Every year it seems to come & go in the blink of an eye. I am one of those people who can't wait for the Christmas season to come, revel in all the activities & festive atmosphere, then always feel sad when it's all over. I hate turning on the radio the day after Christmas & hearing the "regular" music on again. I hate seeing Valentine's Day items in the stores replacing the Christmas things. How does it manage to fly by so fast??? I still haven't baked the cookies from my new cookbook or finished the Christmas novel I started back in November!

Oh well, I don't mean to gripe. I just never feel like I have enough time to do everything I want before the big day gets here. But I should be used to that ~ it happens every year. We had a WONDERFUL Christmas at our house this year! My entire family (on my side) came to our house & stayed for 4 days! I lost a whole day of preparation since they came a day early to beat the bad weather but it was a good thing they did because the roads did get bad! We even had a WHITE Christmas (yay!) but barely. Somehow, an hour north of us they got several inches & down in Oklahoma they got over a foot! We are right in the middle of all that but only got an inch or so. I think Wichita has some sort of repellent to snow, we always get cheated out of it.
Anyway, I'm thankful we had a white Christmas & my family got to be together. I hope all of you had a happy Christmas too! Here's to health, happiness & wonderful new artistic creations in 2010! xoxox
