Merry Christmas!

Well, it’s just after 7 a.m. on the East Coast of the U.S. My husband and I are up and about already, excited to start celebrating. Our “kids” (ages 27 and 23) are still fast asleep.

Thanks to everyone who either stopped by or left a comment yesterday. I love hearing what other people think. 🙂 Winners to my contest will be announced on December 26.
