A Happy Merry Little



Holiday greetings to all.



Make the most of the best and the least of the worst.



My wishes for you

"Be believing, be happy, don't get discouraged. 
Things will work out."
Gordon B. Hinckley






Wishes of joy, love, peace and togetherness for all.




I'm hearing sleigh bells in the snow




Where tree tops glisten and children listen



Remember, you can never light too many candles!



Christmas cards mailed and we're receiving
happiness and good cheer for everyone.







May your days be merry
and bright
and happiness always in sight!






The more Dean Martin songs you hear the better!




How we spent last Friday night
 as a winter snow storm played it's snowy games outside.











What you believe will be!
and yes it's possible to go sleighing without snow!





It was a celebration of music through
 the mall last Friday evening for all to enjoy!





"I believe in love, I believe in hard times and love winning.
I believe marriage is hard. I believe people make mistakes. I believe people
can want two things at once. I believe people are selfish and generous at the same time. I believe very few people want to hurt others. I believe that you can be surprised by life. I believe in happy endings."
Isabel Gillies





"It is about trying to light a candle
 instead of cursing the darkness, 
and loving your life even if  
sometimes it feels as if it
has slipped away."
Isabel Gillies


A very Happy and Merry Christmas,
Hanukkah, Boxing Day, and Kwanzaa

 to all.
