  1. running around like chickens with our heads cut off because we are trying to visit a ton of family. :) However, we love it anyway.

  5. Following on Twitter and FB

  6. Thanks, Lisa and Lisa M. Like you, Lisa, we tend to have a lot of travelling to do over the holidays--especially if we go home to MI. We love it, though. And, as you said, Lisa M. I love the holiday spirit too. Seems people are getting off to a later start this year, though. Maybe it's the lack of snow--or money. :) Time to get back to basics with the gift giving.

  7. The holidays to me mean exactly "Family Time"! Christmas itself was the making of a family when Jesus was born- what better way to celebrate his birth than enjoying time with your family!

  8. @Kara, That's awesome! I never thought of the birth of Jesus as creating a family. One of those "light bulb" moments for me. Thanks!
