There's no place like home

The holidays were such a special time for us this year.  We made new friends, and visited with old ones as well.

It always starts out with lots of good food.

The house was full with the laughter and singing of young people.

International students making new friends with American kids and learning about our Christmas traditions.

And we enjoyed meeting the family of a girl my daughter has been tutoring/mentoring.  They are from Sweden and came to the US for the first time. Languages and cultures may differ, but smiles are the International language.
