Our wish to you....



Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

From our family to yours.............

Have A Very Blessed Christmas!!!!!!

Adorable pictures, Michelle!

I loved your Christmas card, but it is the picture of the girls that I keep staring at!! I LOVE their Christmas Tree dresses & when I see them together, I am just amazed that God KNEW before Time began that they would be sisters!!! I don't know - powerful - gets me emotional, I guess!

Merry Christmas to ya'll!

That's a recipe worth keeping, MIchelle!

I hope your new year is off to a good start. I'm still trying to get into the swing of things. January is such a blah month for me.
