Happy December everyone...can't believe that we're at the festive season already!!

Time to kick it into HIGH gear and get that shopping, wrapping, baking and entertaining going!!  Okay I'm tired!  We are going to start things off on Saturday with a family tree trimming day...lots of food...letting the kids craft an ornament of their own for the tree...OH...and I have a family project to surprise everyone with!  My youngest son and my grandsons LOVE Lego...SO...I bought the Lego "Disney Castle" for the family to chip away at whenever we're of our spare rooms is a Disney room so I'm going to set it up in there and we'll build when the mood strikes...I think it's over 6000 pieces...YIKES!!
