Day 93: The Gift of Christmas

It’s over.

As fast as it was Christmas in the Way house it is officially over.

Day 92: The Spirit of Mothers

Mom's for Mom's

One of the greatest gift you receive by blogging are the people that you connect with both face to face and via the net.

Day 87: Bright Nights

“Get in the spirit of the Holidays – take a train ride through our forest transformed with two million twinkling lights, see the animated displays and listen to holiday sounds as you enjoy hot chocolate, fresh popcorn and roasted chestnuts.”

Through the park we go,  Laughing all the way !
