These are the last of my Christmas photos. Unfortunately my oldest brother couldn’t make it back to Texas for the holiday, but my other brother and his family were able to come down the day after. My niece was so excited about the Ragdoll kitty she got from Santa and brought her along. Her name is Bella, and even though I’m 100% a dog person, this little kitty sure was cute (and so calm!). After getting our kitty fill, we went to the ice skating rink. I hadn’t been to that rink in probably 10 years (does that mean I’m old?). Ice skating is a funny thing. I’m always nervous when I first get on the rink, but then when I let myself relax, it gets easier, and I’m no longer scared. Kind of a metaphor for life, huh?
