Santa found us! We celebrated Christmas Eve last night with a lit Christmas tree. We had candlelit singing with a new candle holder Tim made for the occasion, accompanied by karaoke music from iTunes.
This morning we awakened and had delicious and huge cinnamon buns, which grew in the refrigerator overnight. It’s frustrating because we can’t get online to wish Merry Christmas to the family today but we had several telephone calls from members of the Friends of Deal Island and the Park Service to wish us a happy holiday. Then we exchanged gifts. I received a miniature music box I had coveted in Launceston, Tas and Tim got a knit fairy penguin and a duct tape check book holder.
There is something special about a simple Christmas. Now we are listening to beautiful music on the radio.
