Christmas Memories

First, I'd like to wish all who visit this blog a Merry Christmas as well as a wonderful New Year!

Christmas is a time for celebration and for memories of past Christmas celebrations. In August of 2007, my father passed away after a long struggle with cancer. Although he looked forward to and celebrated Christmas, he wasn't the type of fellow who went all out with decorating his apartment. Actually, he usually hung out one decoration, a small Noel sign.

I miss traveling up to Toledo and visting him on Christmas Eve. In memory of my father, I've taken to hanging the same decoration in our home every Christmas Season and plan to continue doing so for as many years to come as I am able.

Well, of course parents pay attention and look out for their precious little bundles of joy, right?

Do you see or anticipate any problems? Umm, I sure do.

Okay, the ant hill isn’t active, but still. ;)
