Dear friends and family,

As the year comes to an end, I’d like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season.

For the past two years, we celebrated Christmas at the beach.  Our next-door neighbors kindly supplied the two-feet trees, decorated with small ornaments and a small wrap around the stand.

This year, however, we’ve decided to stay in Charlotte. We’ve put up a lovely tree, with wonderful ornaments that we remember every year and an angel on top. We’ve also stuffed the stockings, which look like they’re bursting at the seams. We’ve also displayed painted Santas all around the the house – on the mantel, in the living room, in the den, and more. My mother-in-law (whom I miss greatly) used to purchase casts of Santas, and she painstakingly painted each and every one. What wonderful memories they bring.

Meanwhile, as we Cebrating Christmas, we’re also celebrating something very special –The engagement of our daughter and her fiance’.

They plan to marry this summer, and we are thrilled for both of them.

As you can see, this truly is a VERY MERRY SEASON!

All the best to everyone,
