Christmas Eve we had a service at church and a visit with neighbors before we took off to Philadelphia on Christmas Day. Our flight left at 10:00am and we were at my sister by 1:00 wrapping gifts we had sent to her house. It was an uneventful trip.
We woke up Saturday morning to two inches of snow and still snowing. We left at 6:30 so we could get the rental back near Philadelphia by 9. Glad Larry was driving, it has been awhile since we have been in snow. It sure looked pretty. We made it to the car rental just in time.
We spent until January 2 at my sister's. I would have gone into Philadelphia on New Years day to see the Mummers parade but it was too cold! I watched it on TV. I miss seeing it each year.
We left Philadelphia at 6:30pm and arrived back at Orlando at 9. We were ready for some warm sunny weather but it has been almost freezing and rainy here the last two days. But then it is winter.

I sent out a few cards but I want to wish everyone who reads my blog a Merry Christmas. This homemade card was sent to me years ago by my friend Kathy who passed away unexpectedly last December. Not only did she make her own cards she also wrote an original poem to go with it. In honor and memory of her it is my card to all of you.
May the light that is Jesus Christ shine in your heart and give you comfort.
May His presence brighten your life and bring you Joy.
May our faith in God illuminate the world and lead us towards peace.
