We are stowed away in the mountains of North Carolina eating the remnants of Christmas sweets, playing board games, making new memories and enjoying old ones of this special place. Most of all, we are sharing laughter and time together. What a wonderful way to begin this new year.
As we have shared about all of our December fun with my family this past week, I thought I would create a little December in review with pictures. A picture's worth a thousand words. Right? December is truly becoming a special time for our family. I love as the holiday approaches, the older girls start asking about our traditions and if we will be doing those this year and when and how. They bring the magic to this holiday season. This one was no exception.
