This year for Christmas we decided to scale back quite a bit and get back to the real joy in this season which for us comes from quality time and genuine giving, expecting nothing in return. The boys received just a couple special, well-thought-out gifts, making the reception magic for both the giver and the receiver. We played beautiful music on hand-made instruments and spent lots of time simply conversing. The memories we made, in my humble opinion, far surpass Christmases past.

Merry Christmas and, in the words of my husband, "Happy Everything!" From our family to yours!
