Week 41 - Otherwise known as the one that should've been posted around December 20...
The holiday concerts were one thing that made me happy that week.

Week 42 - Ho ho ho!
Once the final throws of stress melted away, the holidays made me very happy (and not just because of the food and cookies). This picture from Christmas Eve captured the current oldest and youngest members of one side of our family. It made me happy to be able to celebrate with loved ones.
We packed up the sleigh on Christmas Day and hit the thruway so we could catch up with another side of the family. There were two babies born this year that we had not had the pleasure to meet, so it made me very happy to do so!
Oh, and we were also in attendance for the annual gifting from Tres Zie (three aunts). There was singing (in English and Italian) about how all they wanted for Christmas was a notecard from their children, and then we all received packs of notecards for various occasions, complete with custom stamps. We were told we could only send the cards to each other...have they met me? It made me happy to witness this spectacle with the rest of my cousins (missed you Anthony, Sara and your babes), as the usual second solo performance has never quite captured the moment like this did.
Week 43 - Snow!
It made me happy to get outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of the beautiful snow! I got new boots for Christmas, so I was very happy to have warm feet for a change.
Hope you all have been finding much happiness as well lately!
