Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 2013
Merry Christmas to each and everyone! 

I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile but will be back to normal for the new year.  We spent October at our vacation home, then back home for almost three weeks, returning to our vacation home for five weeks.  We made the 1207 mile journey home for Christmas arriving Monday night, leaving us only Christmas Eve to finalize our holiday shopping, restock on groceries and deck the halls for our family gathering on Boxing Day (December 26).  The kids and grandkids will stay for a couple of days then when they leave it is prep time for another large gathering on the 28th.  'Tis indeed a very busy and hectic time for us, but we are very blessed!

May the peace, joy and magic of the holiday season be with you and yours today!  It is not what is found under the tree, but in the warm smiles and loving words of the people around us.  Merry Christmas!
