Happy birthday to my beautiful daughter, Bonnie. She brings me so much joy. My first snow day of the year! I work at a Montessori school and we are getting our first big snow storm of the year so....

It made me think of Oh Little Town of Bethlehem. This year I was able to purchase a poinsettia through my church in honor of my mother. It was comforting to know that she was represented during the Christmas Eve Mass. I had a chance to rearrange the living room a little bit. I
