Christmas Thoughts from Ann V (Part II of No Ordinary Home C. 8)

(As promised – my Christmas gift to you – a post on Christmas by Ann V – be blessed!) Christmas. Visions of falling snowflakes, flickering flames in the fireplace, and sugar plums dance in my head. Well… not actually. Actually, I think of last Christmas….
