going a-visiting

My mom's porch, December 24, 2012
Photo taken by me, around 7:30 p.m.
For the first time in my memory, we had a white Christmas Eve.

"And I do come home at Christmas. We all do, or we all should. We all come home, or ought to come home, for a short holiday - the longer, the better - from the great boarding-school, where we are for ever working at our arithmetical slates, to take, and give a rest. As to going a visiting, where can we not go, if we will; where have we not been, when we would; starting our fancy from our Christmas Tree!" 
~ Charles Dickens, "A Christmas Tree"

"Through the years we all will be together
if the fates allow.
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow."
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

Hope all of you who were celebrating today had a Merry Christmas! We're back home for the holidays, in Philadelphia, spending the week going a-visiting.

More photos later, but for now, it was a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day.

A reminder that despite everything, this really is a wonderful life.
