Given the disasterous results of last year's family gathering in Southshore, we decided to have this years' in the safety of our own home. I'm just thankful that we got dear Fai back, even if there were a few unexpected changes.
It's been an eventful year for us all, with a few surprises here and there, but through it all we've kept each other in our hearts and minds whenever possible. If you have family, remember that not everyone does - but if we're very lucky, we'll find one anyway. My family, as diverse as it is, is still my family, and I'm glad for every one of them.
To celebrate, we gather together and feast and enjoy each others' company. We all decided to get gussied up for the Feast of Winter's Veil, although Kutath lost his fancy duds when The Exodar crashed, and he hadn't gotten around to getting replacements (and believe me, it's not easy finding fancy duds to fit a fully grown male Draenai!). He took it in good humor, though. Well, here's looking forward to next year's gathering.
Here's a little something from us to you to commemorate the occasion. Thanks for coming by, and we hope to see you again! Best wishes for the new year from Grimmtooth, Jasra, Floramel, Illume, Faiella, Slithmere, Kutath, Orlee, Amusmoses, and Yarley!
