happy holidays!

It is Christmas evening. Gifts have been exchanged. Toys and games have been played. Phone calls to wish family well have been made. Turkey has been prepared and eaten. And to top it off, snow has fallen.

What a wonderful treat it was to see snow flakes fall on Christmas day. I can't remember the last time it snowed on Christmas.

What a lovely, quiet day the three of us have spent together. Memories have been made.

early Christmas presents

Today we three Mays delivered nine early Christmas presents in the form of blood donations. It was Wesley's first time and he came through the experience unscathed. While we were having our juice and cookies post-donation, one of the volunteers told us we were giving presents to three people each. It felt good to know that we could be making a difference to someone's life...especially at this time of year.

If you give blood on a regular basis, way to go. If you have given before but haven't in a while, please consider getting out to a clinic over the holiday season to help out. And if you have never given, please think seriously about checking out the Canadian Blood Services website and seeing if there is a clinic coming up in your area.

If you don't live in Canada, please consider making a donation through the blood services programs in your country.

Wishing you and yours a very wonderful holiday season.

Happy Holidays everyone!

oh, the weather outside is frightful...

This is what our weekend looked like during the first snowfall of the season. Glad it decided to do it over the weekend so we could just hunker down and appreciate the beauty.

check out the size of the snowflakes

It's raining now, so don't know what things will look like in the AM. I am just hoping it doesn't freeze overnight.
