Amazing Grace; Off to Louisiana and Texas

From our house to yours, my husband and I send wishes for a joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year!

In the spirit of the Season, the incomparable Judy Collins, with the Boys' Choir of Harlem, sings Amazing Grace here.

A YouTube video of Amazing Grace sung in Cajun French (LaGrace du Ciel) by Les Amies Louisianaises is here.

We leave early Monday morning to join friends at the Biltmore (near Asheville, North Carolina) for Christmas. On the 26th, hub and I cut south for New Orleans and holiday cheer with family and friends in the Bayou State. Then, on the 2nd, we go to Houston for a couple of days as it's our turn to make the trip. We hope to be back in Virginia around the 10th -- and back to blogging. But, whoa, let's slow this train down and enjoy the holidays first. The little kid in me can't understand how they take so long to get here and then go by so quickly.

Happy Holidays, everyone! XOXO

Happy Holidays to you and your husband Kittie. Have a great time with your family and friends.

We haven't visited each other for awhile so you probably don't know that Geo and I are touring Europe again. In Spain at the mo. Missing the kids this Christmas but big celebrations when we get home.

Happy New Year!

Denise

Hey :-)
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fun time with your friends and family! We're in the Drakensberg just after Christmas, then the Eastern Cape for a week or so, and then we do the big move to Cape Town in mid January. I'm really excited about that!
