Christmas Fun!

Fun and Family, what a great combination.  Christmas day was such a nice time of relaxing and enjoying time with my extended family.  Life gets so crazy, but times like this are the glue that hold us together. The gifts are under the tree, just waiting for the kids to open them.  We started a…
