It’s that time of year once again! The holidays are upon us and we pause our busy daily lives to spend some truly wonderful time with our family and dearest friends. Mrs. Toad and I would like to take this chance to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season, and to thank everyone for your ongoing friendship, support and encouragement this year at The Hollow.
We love this time of year. Everything becomes bright and beautiful as the seasons decorations are put up everywhere. The colors are vibrant and everyone is busy bustling to and fro as they go about shopping and spending time with those who mean the most to them.
Mrs. Toad and I were lucky enough to spend the evening with our dearest friends, the Mudpuppies. The company was wonderful, the food was terrific and both of us left the house late last night for our long drive home with aching cheeks from laughing so hard. What could possibly be better!
As the gentle glow from the soft candle light and the wonderful twinkle from the exquisitely adorned tree bath the room in a warm and loving feeling, we wish we could invite you all over for some season’s cheer. This is the scene at the Mudpuppies house, an iconic scene that was both welcoming and entrancing. After a busy and long year, with many milestones and memories, we just love to take this chance to stop and take it all in. Our children and our grandson are all living away from us, in another province, and we miss them dearly. The phone lines will certainly be busy on Sunday morning as we call each other in an effort to bridge the miles between us.
This final post before Christmas day is truly a message of love and peace for everyone. We have received so much from all our family and friends this year, and it’s important that we get a chance to thank each and every one of you for everything you’ve done.
I am not sure I’ll be back to my computer next week, things are fluid and in a state of flux. Please know we’ll be thinking of you all and looking forward to returning to share some more great photography and experiences with everyone. And in the meantime, peace be with you all, we love each and every one of you.
Best wishes, from The Toads, to you.
