Merry Christmas (and Kit photo sessiya)

З різдвом!

С рождеством!

Merry Christmas!

If this is a holiday for you, may it be a wonderful one : )
If this is a regular day for you, may it be a wonderful one : )

Decorations at the library... a good example of using what you've got!
My desk owl gets some holiday cheer.

In the last 8 years, 50% of my Christmases have been spent in places where December 25th is not considered a holiday. I think I've lost the Christmas decorating ability by now but it's been fun to see how talented others are at it around town. This year our home is plain save for these two things:
Tipsy Santa. Found him two years ago at the Ukrainian version of the dollar store. He has since become our treasured family holiday heirloom ; )
Christmas card display on door. Spasibo for the cards, friends!

My best friend mailed over two perfect gifts- colorful stationary and a journal with daily prompts. The message on the card: never stop writing.
I won't. Thank you, Jenn!

Meanwhile, we had one very special event today on Christmas Eve: Kit's photo sessiya. Just like any Ukrainian worth their salt, he's got a penchant for the photo sessiya (photo session). Posing with props is perhaps not his strong point, but he got it all figured out by the end.

Пока пока!
