Christmas Day
 

Home Up


 

December 25th, 2021            

Once again, it is the day of the year that the kids look forward to most, Christmas day! As they have gotten older the gift requests have gotten much more expensive, and the amount that we give them each year has declined as those costs have gone up. Thankfully this was the first year that the kids really seemed to understand just how expensive they are, so they weren't disappointed with what they got this year. Anyway, enjoy the pictures, and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
