Every year, I make up a Christmas card for my parents, gathering photos of all the family and endeavoring to put in something that speaks of our family customs for the season.  This year, I'll make a border of the wonderful little Mexican painted and decorated ornaments that Mom and Dad received from Gr. and Gr. Loomis in 1962-3.  That year, Mom was pregnant with my sister and couldn't make the trek down to Wash DC.  So....Gr brought Christmas to Michigan - a tin tree all decked out...and several ornaments that still decorate Mom's table each season.  
We have had a very difficult year - have lost loved ones, but yet - we rejoice and are thankful for the happy years we shared with them....

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
