Merry Christmas everyone!

SWF 2013 Christmas207

I hope your holidays have been happy so far.  I got up this morning feeling blessed and so happy.

Kalev was glad to have me back, but was more interested in my kangaroo that Carol and Glenn gave me.

Mom and Dad, Kalev, Roo and I all wish you and your family the very best holidays ever.  God bless.

    • Blogging is so good for me. For a history person I am very uncultured. This is the first year I had every heard of Boxing Day. Several bloggers mentioned it, so I had to go look it up. Did you get lots of great gifts for Christmas and Boxing Day – not only for yourself, but did you get something memorable for others? 🙂 Happy New Years. That’s coming up fast, and poof the year is gone! 🙂


    • Thanks Leanne. We had a marvelous day. I’m glad you are having peace. Now I have more pictures than I can ever share! 🙂 Better late than never. Lots of love, and have a great New Year. 🙂 Marsha 🙂


    • Thanks, RoSy. Same to you. I just finished talking to my brother, and I always think of you when I do, since we went right by your house on our train trip. 🙂 Merry Christmas. 🙂





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
