This time of year we have a big push to have many small get-togethers, so we can share gifts with all our dear friends and loved ones who we may not see on Christmas day.

Last night began the mini Christmas parties with our dear friends Carol and Don, and our three year old Godchild, Beth Alice.

We shared wonderful conversation, taking away from all the unpleasant things we each experienced during the day (I won’t get into each of our woes). We then all enjoyed a fine Mexican cuisine at Amigos Mexican Cantina, just off the circle in Milford, NH. (Only rivaled by their new location in Merrimack, NH.

After which we exchanged our Christmas gifts, and opened them, since we would not be together on Christmas. It was truly a wonderful evening with a small group (three) of friends and loved ones. And has set the bar for many more similar evenings ove the next two weeks.

I hope all your holiday happenings are as fine as ours started. My wish to each and every one of you is that you find the inner happiness you seek and share it with as many people as you can for the rest of this year.

Here’s our three year old Goddaughter, Beth Alice


This Saturday, 12/12/09, we are participating at a Holiday Craft Fair, located at Our Lady of the Cedars Church, on the corner of Calef Road and Mitchell Street in Manchester, NH from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

This event is sponsored by the Manchester Policemen’s Wives Scholarship Board. 100% of all funds raised from rentals, raffles and food sales will be utilized for post High School education scholarships for the sons and daughters of Manchester, NH Police Officers.

This is a great way for us to end our best year ever and we hope to have a great turn-out for this venue.
…I hope to see you there 🙂
