Hi there!

It was a low key but very festive season here.
Well, it appears that I needed to take a bit of a break.  I didn't know I needed a break, or I refused to acknowledge it, but any way you look at it, a break was had.  I would like to thank each and every one of you who took the time to write me a message.  It was so very sweet of you to take the time to reach out to me and I appreciated each and every letter that I received.  I promise, I am doing well and did not mean to scare y'all in any way.  I guess I forget sometimes that this is more than just an online diary of my silly life... but it was sure comforting and heartwarming to know that friends here were concerned.  I'm sorry I made you worry.  Please, forgive me.

So, how was your holiday?  Our Christmas was fabulous.  We are looking for a new tradition to start with Hobbit so that she'll have a special memory associated to the holidays.  We have some for the time leading up to Christmas - cookie baking, etc - and we have one for Christmas Eve - light looking, cocoa, Pokey reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas", and Santa tracking - but we were looking for one for Christmas Day... so we went to Walt Disney World after the presents were opened.  By 9:45 am - because Hobbit had us up at 4:30 am! - we were driving through the gates of Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Even though it was crazy busy and full of people, it wasn't too bad.  We chose this particular park because of the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights - and because, historically speaking, the Magic Kingdom and Epcot reach capacity and turn people away.  That's just too crazy for me so we went for the smaller park and a slow, relaxing day.

We were greeted by one of the largest Christmas trees I have ever seen in my entire life!

Our first stop, The Great Movie Ride.  This is one of my most favorite attractions in the whole park.

Then we went to Oaken's so Hobbit could build her first ever snowman!

Afterwards, it was off to watch "Lights, Motors, Action!" where we got to watch Lightening McQueen!

After lunch we went on Star Tours to resist the temptation of the dark side - and their cookies.

After a cocoa break, we went to get our pixie dust topped off at my favorite attraction - One Man's Dream.

We ended the night with some magical snow flurries that only Disney could do on Christmas Day.

A stroll through the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights was the perfect end to the day.

I don't know if we'll make it a tradition but we certainly made it a most memorable Christmas for her.
I do hope that your holiday - however you celebrate - was filled with the love of family and friends, as well as every blessing of the season.  I know mine was - and you were such a big part of it.
