🌟 Merry Christmas 🌟

Merry Christmas, my Readers!

It’s a frigid morning ❄️ and we got a sprinkling of snow!

It’s kind of a strange holiday this year, but we are counting our blessings anyway.

We started our holiday with a gathering of family on Christmas Eve. We played some board games, including one fun one that’s kind of new to us, called Code Names. It’s pretty interesting to follow different people and their reasoning as they give clues for others to guess. We like these types of games.

I hope you have a wonderful day with your family. Remember why we celebrate this day. And may Jesus live in your home and hearts!

  1. Laurie,
    Merry Christmas!!!
    Thanks again for hosting this charming party!! I truly appreciate the time and effort that goes into it! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

  2. Laurie, I’m glad you got to relax and enjoy your family on Christmas Eve. Praying this coming year will be filled with God’s blessings in spite of the challenges with which you may be faced.

  3. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed the beauty of a sprinkling of snow! We spent the holiday digging ourselves out from underneath 5 feet of snow which eventually became a thing of humor after 5 days of nonstop snow! May the new year be filled with much love, light, and laughter for you.
