Things are about to get very busy, so I'll put out my Chrisrmas wishes now.
Anita, Christine and I will be doing Christmas Eve here at the old homestead. A traditional Norwegian fish feast (perhaps with some local Dungeness crab?), opening gifts and then off to the Lutheran Church for midnight services. All very nice stuff.
Then we will be off Christmas Day to San Jose and Will's family for more gift giving and feasting... especially with granddaughter Ava. This will be the first Christmas that really means anything to her, so it should be fun for all, especially her.
So, here is hoping all have a joyous Christmas, and remember, be grateful for what you have!
