Christmas dinner included an extra carrot for Cricket and I discovered that dressing/stuffing can slide down pretty easily and declared it okay on the smooth/liquid diet. I was so excited on this treasure that everyone was waiting to say the prayer and I was eating my dressing -- oops!
I loved getting to visit the historic sites where my parents are serving. In the picture below our family is standing in front of Jacob Hamblin's house - which my mom had decorated it beautifully inside (so I'm told :D) Cricket decided she was not going to look at the camera for this picture.
This Christmas was full of special Treasures! Of course, family was on the top of the list. The DVD of Christmas' past was a big hit and a treasure to us to both receive and give (thank you Natalie) Perhaps there will be a sequel. Natalie's gift of a book of our 25-year anniversary Hawaii trip is a treasure and such a fun surprise. My parents compiling histories of our family and sharing their own thoughts in a book for each of us is such a treasure. Kendall knowing his mom's favorite store to decorate (because he has hauled many items from that store) and getting a gift card from the store signed from 'your son' is a treasure. Steve being so excited with the yoga outfit he gave me is a treasure. He is such a great shopper for me ... also love the dresses, pants and cardigan he gave me. Most especially love the givers of these gifts. Receiving a beautiful handwritten letter from my grandma expressing her love is a treasure.
Memories are a treasure. Cricket snuggling by my feet as I type is a treasure. What do you treasure?
