Friday Five

Did everyone survive Christmas? 
Ours went well. We have a quiet day at our house, just the seven of us. No rushing, no traveling. It’s calm and we love it.

Christmas. 

Every year at this time I say “next year I’m going to start early” then the next year comes and I don’t. I can’t be the only one, right? This year I was a little ahead, but not by much.
