Happy Holidays

Both of my kids are home for Christmas break, so I didn’t get out much to take photos. There were cookies to bake…

Cookies!

Lights to display outside…

Faux trees

And, a tree to decorate…

all the trimmings

There are more cookies to bake and a few more boxes to wrap. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Give thanks, give hugs, and keep peace in your heart.
