It's that time of year again! I can not even believe how incredibly fast this year has gone by. I love Christmas and this time of year the most for all the fun family activities we get to do together. I am not big on gift giving and receiving and this year we will be focusing on it even less. I want to end this year with a pile of memories, not a pile of stuff.
