11 Months Until Christmas, But Still Plenty to Celebrate


It’s a new year, a new month, and our Christmas countdown begins again. That most wonderful day is precisely 11 months away, and we have some good things in store for you in the upcoming year.

Speaking of wonderful days, did you know that both Becky and I celebrated our birthdays earlier this month? Yep, we sure did! Many of our friends in Santa’s Secret Village joined in the festivities, including Raymond. Here’s our dear little friend standing in the shower of confetti, waiting to get a taste of the luscious frosting.
