Held For Ransom


Every year on Christmas Eve we go to Bob's work place to pick up the Christmas Day edition of the Dominion Post printed early to allow the pressmen to go home. Bob called the photo of us made looking in the full length mirror "Held for Ransom".

Other family traditions continue:
The week before Christmas I pack pizza kits and fruit bags for the HSC Cafeteria and Catering staff and the support staff. My boys help pack and we leave the fruit in a spot where each person sees it soon after their work begins. Bob strings the Christmas cards to hang where we can enjoy them from our seats on the couch.

To my local scrapbook friends: There is a new scrapbook store near Morgantown, in Westover, just off the Morgantown Mall exit from I 79. It is called "Everyday's a Scrapbook" and it is a very nice little store.

I just browsed through your blog and realised I had missed quite a few of your recent posts ... this time of year is always hectic and I don't have a lot of time to follow and comment on my fave blogs. But I just wanted to let you know how much I love your work, even if I can't find the time right now to comment on each post.
Happy New Year Cindy, and thank you for always being there for me with sweet words and support!
