      Hey everyone! As you can tell, we're feeling very winter like around here! I guess that's not too surprising when you live in Michigan and it's the beginning of December. Mother Nature has been all to willing to show us who has the upper hand here! But...with Christmas only 19 days away, a little snow is not unheard of. Did you catch my casual little plug about Christmas? What that means is too much to do and not nearly enough time to do it! Each year I tell myself I'm going to scale down, but how do you scale down Christmas? Do you cut family, presents or decorations? Furthermore, if I'm being honest with myself, do I really want to scale down? Isn't the crazy, pandemonium just a part of it? Well, it is in my world, so if you can't beat them, you might as well join them! Call me crazy #1!
