Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas!! December has flown by and suddenly Christmas holidays are here!  I can't even begin to express how much I am looking forward to the next 11 days.  We decided to spend time just the three of us doing whatever it is that makes our hearts happy.  I think the next few days are going to include lots of matching pyjama time, and all the Christmas movies we haven't yet watched this year (mainly It's a Wonderful Life, and A Christmas Carol).  A break from the everyday and a transition into vaca mode and then the beginning of a new year!
