Merry Christmas

Normally I’m the person who has everything done, wrapped and bowed by Thanksgiving. Then I enjoy the Christmas season much more leisurely when I have the hustle and bustle out of the way. This year, that just did not happen. I finished up yesterday, with 2 whole days to spare. Whew…..made it. But at least throughout the past month we did manage to get necessities and fun things done. Considering how not on the ball I was, we are lucky the following happened.

Earlier we did Santa visit. Check. And got the tree up. Check.
