It's hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone. Thank goodness for a little time away to celebrate the Lord's birth with family and friends. We left on Christmas Eve to drive to Eastern Washington where we spent time with my family. It was great to see everyone. My Father is suffering from dementia and it is very difficult to see how far downhill he has gone but my Mom is doing a great job as his sole caregiver. The weather was cold and sunny...beautiful...I love it when the sky is so blue. My guys had a really fun time on the day after Christmas. They were able to go with my brother-in-law and nephew to ski at Schweitzer Basin. The pictures are...well, amazing...They look as if they are...on top of the world.
My sister and I stayed behind to hang out with our Mom and have a little girl time. It was so strange at dinner time because it was just my Mom, Dad, Sister and Me... We haven't done that it in...lets see...23 years! It was good to be with family. Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season and looking forward to 2010. I have lots of great paintings planned for spring and look forward to sharing ideas with you.
