We had such a great Christmas
lots of family, games and eating!
This is the first year in a bit that I have relaxed and enjoyed it all
instead of being rushed and anxious!!
I shopped early and did not try to make everything perfect!
Amen is all I can say!
It was not perfect...
it was fabulous and enjoyed:)
