Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I hope you and your loved ones are enjoying a wonderful holiday! I had high hopes for this week and planned to blog but things got crazy busy right before Christmas and my oldest daughter came down with a nasty stomach bug on Christmas Eve. So, while I'd love to share that our holiday was spent baking cookies and enjoying merriment, it was spent disinfecting and serving up saltines and ginger ale. Still, this year was better than the last and most importantly, we were home, all together as a family. We still managed to squeeze in some of our traditions and made the most of our quiet holiday.

It's hard to believe this 2015 Christmas season is winding down. Things will likely be a bit quieter over the next week, as I plan to enjoy Christmas vacation with my family who hopefully will stay healthy right through the New Year! 2016 is almost here!

Merry Christmas to all!

  2. Happy New Year,
    My son got sick too! He was really bad the 22 - 24th, doing better by the 25th. Thank goodness. Yes, I am sanitizing too. We are praying no one else gets it.

    Thank you for the Christmas card. Beautiful girls :-))

    And what was the verdict regarding Star Wars? :-))
