MAKE LOVE THE CENTER OF YOUR CHRISTMAS

Through the eyes of a child, Christmas can be a magical time.  What is wonderful and mystical about Christmas can't be gift-wrapped, though.  When your children are grown, what they will remember most about Christmases past, is love.  "One of my favorite Christmas traditions growing up was finding a Christmas tree".  We put on warm clothes, brought a thermos of hot chocolate and hunted through the woods for the perfect tree.  We laughed, sang and enjoyed being together."
