Dear Family and Friends, As you may know, I like to reflect on the Christmas Story when I sit down to write our annual Christmas letter. In recent years I have found myself identifying with the shepherds in the story. Regular, working class folk…

Parent Perks

By far, this is my favourite part of being a mom. When she left for school in the morning, the house looked like this. Then she came home to this.   I took these. And they made these. What started off as a question……..
