Merry Christmas!

I had to post something here for a few friends who must think that I have fallen off the face of the earth! I'm still here, -- just caught up in the whirlwind of the holidays.
But I wanted to send out greetings to all of you for a Merry Christmas and hope you can stop wrapping, grocery shopping, crafting (for others) and cooking long enough to enjoy a little bit of this holiday and get a little rest in before January starts! I know a lot of you are like me and just don't slow down!....
But I have been enjoying the company of some nice people - been working at my kids' school helping out. We had a very nice "Holiday Shop" for the kids and I made items for that and helped decorate and wrap. It really came together nicely and I so enjoyed watching the kids shop for their families.
I have also been spending a lot of time with my kids - and I can't imagine time better spent. We watched our traditional "Home Alone" movie last night together, all curled up on the big bed with a comforter over us. I never want to lose that tradition. We've also made a lot of cookies, fudge, and wrapped a lot of gifts together. We are super excited for Christmas! Happy Holidays to all of you!
