Happy Holidays!!!

No matter what you are celebrating this week, I want to wish you a very happy holiday!

We are very busy here hardly a moment to stop and breathe.

My son is home with a fellow soldier friend, who is becoming like another son to me. This will be the first Christmas season spent without my parents, none of us made the trip, but it will be fabulous none the less.

Old friends of mine and my children's, stopping by, friends of the kids who have become as close to me as my own kids, and Christmas eve with my best friend and her family in the mountains. I am rather excited to make the best of this season.

We have already done a lot of baking for the neighbors and parties,

Gotten creative with graham cracker gingerbread houses,

Shoveled knee deep snow,

and opened my doors to a near homeless and pregnant old friend more than down on her luck.

Can you feel the spirit of the season?

Wishing you and yours a fabulous Holiday, and to those of you who will not be celebrating a holiday, have a wonderful weekend!
And thank you for reading.
