Traveling away from home is always a compromise.
I have friends who love their annual traditions so much, they could
never travel away from home at Christmas time.
Since my Mom passed away in 2000 it has never been the same for me.
So we made new traditions.
What I do miss most of all, is my sweet little Claire.
Happiness is knowing that Jeremy and Julie have
started their own tradition with Claire.
This year they will go to Julie's parents in Victoria to celebrate Christmas.
Julie's Grandma is 102. It will be wonderful for both of them to see each other again.
I am so glad Claire has that in her DNA.
Claire and I made up these Christmas cards on my last visit to see her.
We used my iPad, combined with the
"Martha Stewart Craft Studio" app.
She loves the glitter.
