Happy New Year!
In our usual tradition, we enjoyed a healthy and happy New Year's Eve celebration at home with family and friends - and it was great to have the Poker Girls together again before everyone heads back to college. We were all very excited that Grandma VandenPlas and Aunt Mary Peter were able to spend the week with us as well and ring in the New Year. It was a year ago that Jimmy proposed to Kelsey, and Grandma & Grandpa Benesh eloped on New Year's Eve 54 years ago. The day continues to hold warm and wonderful memories for all of us!
Magical Winter Nights
Since the snow finally decided to start falling on December 27th, it hasn't stopped! We enjoy some wonderful holiday lights here in Strongsville - and many special memories of time spent at the Gazebo with friends and family...
We were so blessed to have the entire family here for Christmas this year. For the first time ever, we were all on winter break at the same time, and able to spend weeks together baking, decorating, and enjoying all the magic of the season together. Of course, the days flew by way too fast!
