I celebrated my first Christmas as Mrs. Murakami! Christmas Eve was shared with my extended family at my brother Steve's beautiful home. Christmas day it was just our little family, and I have to say, it was one of our best Christmases ever! Although the weather was a tad damp, it did not dampen our spirits. Rob took us girls out golfing for the very first time in our lives. I never thought I would like golf, but it was a blast! Even when I swung hard at the ball and it rolled a mere five inches! Lots of laughter and whooping cheers every time we did manage to catch some air and distance. Sorry no pics - it was wet outside!
But I do have pics of the great indoors, and they do show how merry our time together was. This is what Christmas with family is all about:
some wishes coming true,
a little friendly competition,
and lots of joy!
Here's to a wonderful new year, too!
