Merry Christmas from Irvine, California!

Christmas morning was sunny and clear so after our Christmas breakfast  (I was up late making a traditional Christmas Danish for friends and family) and gift giving, we headed out for a hike overlooking Laguna Beach. 

The temperature was a bit cool for us — in the mid 60’s, enviable weather when you consider the snow and sleet in other parts of the country!  After the rain a couple of weeks ago, the trail is brushed with green.  Great to be outdoors engaged in strenous activity after indulgently sampling  rum balls, lemon cake made from Meyer lemons from my lemon tree, my Martha Stewart touch this season, and gingerbread cookies for our holiday entertaining  these past two weeks.   Late this afternoon, we’ll have a traditional Chistmas dinner with all the trimmings. 

As I sit down for dinner, I will contemplate the blessings of this year.  Many have come from families such as yours who tell me how my little workbook has helped their child.  It is very gratifying to imagine children all over the country and in different parts of the world who have benefited from my little book.  I am indeed grateful to you and wish you all a Merry Christmas!
