I have read all of your wonderful Christmas blog spots and love them all. Makes me sad that I missed so much this year. Everything I went to was chaos. It was almost impossible to make things at Heather's special for Christmas. I was just trying to survive. I will try to do better next year. Anyway, all of your posts were great! Love, Mother
