Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to one and all. These are my kids...they are 17 and 18 years old. All I ever ask from them for Christmas is for them to get their pic taken on Santa. I love it!! I have a Santa frame where I proudly display my pic and a Santa Scrapbook that I add one page to every year. This is the scrapbook layout I came up with. I'll be taking some time off posting for the next few days to enjoy Christmas with my family. Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)
