Christmas Time

Christmas Time....

I love giving and receiving gifts but sometimes it can be a little overwhelming at Christmas...One of my favorite gifts that I received this year was this Old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook...My Aunt gave it to me and I think it's been in my family for years...I just love the idea of gifts that can be handed down to the next generation. A fabulous idea for next year...recycled or "vintage" gifts! I love that no money was spent on this it!!

This year we hosted two Christmas dinners at our home and I just love the memories that were made. We had time for some fun in the snow...enjoying friends and family and eating way too much good food.

This Christmas we also had to say goodbye to one of my Auntie' she was diagnosed with lung cancer and died shortly after Christmas and two of David's buddies who just recently died in Afghanistan...We never know how much time we have with the people in our lives and we were once again reminded of this precious gift, at Christmas time.
