Christmas Card Conundrum

Filed under: children, Food Allergies, France, travel — midway2go @ 11:00 am

Here’s the conundrum: I can send out Christmas cards (late, but, still…) and mention the blog, or I can use that time to update the blog, but then I can’t mention my newly updated blog in the cards because I don’t have time to send them.

Solution? I’ll take it one country at a time and keep it simple.  How about a few photos and no long, rambling stories?  Do I hear a hearty chorus of “Thank God”s out there?  Gee, thanks.   So, here they are,  highlights from France:  the Loire River (so much more interesting than the valley), Paris (from our miniscule balcony we watched the lights twinkle from Sacre Coeur across the skyline to the Eiffel Tower and beyond) Versailles (where we zipped through the Chateau to spend hours riding bikes through the gardens- Nora mastered the two-wheeler there!), and an evening spent watchng the sun set at Mont St. Michel.   Even without bread and cheese France is something like heaven.



  1. So glad to hear from you. Didn’t know where to send a Christmas card. Merry Christmas and Blessings in the new year! Beth and Jake 🙂

  2. Chrislyn, Katie and I think of you, Brandin, Rory and Nora often. Did I ever send you the link to my “Grandma’s Biscuits” film I made with Grandma Peedin? Mom mentioned visiting your Granny recently so you have been on my mind. I’ve linked my James River Film Journal blog as my website. Go there and look for a post titled “Lonely Are the Brave?” and you’ll get my biscuit movie and a dose of Grandma Lucille. Or you can click on my name under writers and find the post that way. Or, hell, why not make it easy? … just click here: Lots to catch up on. Love to you all and Merry Chistmas! — James

    for all the Sky Walkers
