Happy Christmas

It hardly seems possible that it is time to send Christmas greetings again! We are busy here doing all the special things that are involved with Christmas...decorating, cooking, and planning special times with friends and family. We are also playing catch up after a packed fall schedule, and doing planning for 2017. We hope that all of you are also busy with the wonderful hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season. During all of these fun and busy times,I hope you will take some time to reflect on some favorite memories from past Christmases and to remember the true reason for the season.  

Wishing you and yours a Christmas filled with joy!

Brenda, Robert & Jackie
