December 2007

M e r r y C h r i s t m a s
This is my favorite time of year. I look forward to decorating the tree and
hanging the garland and ribbons. With our young family we have made a new
tradition of dressing in our matching Pj's and driving around looking at
Christmas lights just before bedtime. I hope your Christmas is filled with
wonderful memories with your family and loved ones as well.
Merry Christmas, Kimberly
