Looking Back At A Christmas Day Miracle

Merry Christmas to All

December 25, 2004

It started snowing on Christmas Eve around 9pm. It was a miracle happening before our eyes… A white Christmas. Everyone in the family got dressed in warm clothes and went out to play…

It was a sight unexpected, unpredicted… unprecedented. Everyone danced and cavorted late into the early morning hours.

So… For the past few weeks I have been working my way through my archives and uploading them to my Page/Gallery/Store.
