Glory be, we are almost to Christmas day!
We are exactly a week away from Christmas and I don’t know about you, but our family is pumped. We are ready for slow mornings and cinnamon rolls; for special homemade treats given to folks we love; for cuddling up by the fire; for reading the Christmas Story with all of our extended family (right before we dive into a delicious feast and secret Santa gifts!)
