Christmas is in one week - how did that happen? It seems like time is getting away from me faster and faster of late. I think it must be that it's a time of year with so many things going on that I lose track of the days and what's coming up. One of those things this year was my blog - I had so many posts that I had planned since I've been doing some neat craft and sewing things but the time write them out was lost along the way somewhere. The other issue is that I am lacking good pictures. My camera has finally died and it only works once in a while now but since it's been my faithful friend since 2001 I'm not too sad. It had a long and useful life for a digital camera. =)
I was planning on getting a new camera but then I discovered that my phone has an amazing camera built right in - with a higher resolution and better picture capabilities than my old camera had! The only real issue is that it's a new phone since my old phone had finally died too (a Window's 7 phone - thanks Will, it's very cool) and I'm still trying to figure it out. Most of the time I can get a decent picture but I have to re-learn how to take pictures since it's sooo much faster than my old digital. Hopefully, soon I can get it all figured out and upload some stuff to share. =)
I've been thinking lately about the holiday traditions that I want to pass on to my children that were important to my family growing up. We always received one new Christmas ornament every year that we opened on Christmas eve - I have most of mine from when I was little and they are special to me. I always made candy every year with my Grandmother - almond toffee bark and fudge were two we did every year! And, a tradition that I started with Dominic, is to decorate a Gingerbread house every year. Christmas time is always special and fully of wonderful memories to cherish in the years to come - what holiday traditions do you celebrate in your family?
