      No Comments on Christmas Day 2012

Today marked our ninth Christmas here in Maryland. We’ve enjoyed every year, watching the kids holiday wonderment and sharing this time together. This season, we hosted a fun holiday potluck for our vegetarian MeetUp group on the 23rd, and that launched us into a feeling of festiveness and holiday cheer.

Darren and I just watched the ball drop on TV with the kids, and welcomed in our 20th New Year together!
