Merry Christmas to you, kk. I had to share some of your words with Trisha. I cried the morning I read your email. It was so beautiful, but enough of that here. I shall respond later.

you are so full of EMBRACE. love it.

I finally got your site to link on mine (for some reason it didn't like me) and I am happy for the regular site feed!

I would not have guessed you to be a Mariah Carrey fan...

I want to be IN your Christmas world--it is absolutely peaceful. However you would HAVE to carry me down the snowy slopes w/ my board! Never been. Now I am going to have to see Latifah's Christmas movie since you LOVE!
BTW-ha ha ha YES we did take that cat to the members-What?!! I think it was my idea out of compassion, but now it seems so gross and like a bad prank. I hope no one saw us-ha ha ha. I forgot about that. that is why I LOVE blogging.

I love Christmas too. Its the only time of the year that you can hear people sing on the radio about Christ and God and they don't get sued over it and people don't freak out. So many wonderful things about this time of year. Unfortunately, I'm not feeling the Christmas spirit as much. Perhaps its because I'm so tired! BTW, I let my kids think there's a Santa Claus until they figure out that theres not. You're only a kid once. And its a good way of keeping the kids from fighting with eachother. hahaha Love you!!

Thanks for sharing your life! Miss you! Love to hear about your Christmas! Love Sissel and the "Where are you Christmas" song too! But I really enjoy a lot of what you mentioned on your blog. You're awesome! I wish I could come visit you! But people may start talking to me in Mandarin and I wouldn't understand, that happens sometimes when I go to Chinese resturants... Love ya!

We missed having you in the states for Christmas this year but I have a feeling that someday we might be able to have you here with us for a sledding outing or two. I would have loved to have you at our family party too. It was fun although then you would probably be puking with the rest of us and that wouldn't be so fun.

I also loved seeing what you love about Christmas and unlike T I would have guessed you as a Mariah Christmas fan :) Love it!

Thanks for always brightening my day with your comments and for being such a good "sister" to my sisters.
LOVE YOU!
