Indeed each day is a gift. Happy holidays to you and Astrid. We had a lovely white Christmas Eve when my family was all home here. The soft falling snow made it look so pretty too.
Ginnie Hart: The falling snow with family all safe-n-sound would have been my greatest gift for Christmas, Jacquelyn! Lucky you.
