    Goodmorning!
    Our favorite holiday family tradition is wearing PJ’s with Santa/Elf hats out to breakfast.(people love to take pics with us) Have a day of xmas music and just being together. I would love to take him on a train ride! My son loves to help bake. I bake & he decorates. My son is 7 and I have MS, as bad as I want to take him to the zoo lights that would require I limit myself due to how much the cold effects me in so many ways. I would love for him to go back to school after winter break with something to tell his peers. He is doing so amazing in school. I am so blessed and grateful to GOD. Thank you for this opportunity, totally worth a shot. Merry Christmas🙏🎄

  69. Melanie Franklin

    We lost an important relative on Thanksgiving, so it is more necessary than ever for us to be family focused. While every Christmas we visit relatives and exchange gifts, this Christmas I would like to engage the children and I into a church charity. I think it is never to early to start new traditions and I can use this experience to teach the importance of giving back and to hopefully provide needed healing as well.
