Annual Reading of ‘A Christmas Memory’

For our third year now (2012 here, 2011 here), we’ve relished in a holiday tradition of reading Truman Capote’s ‘A Christmas Memory.’ This year, we were at Kris and Tom’s, and Eamon and Sadie joined in for dinner and the reading, too.

Samantha and Irene helped with decorating the tree:
