A Note From Lynsay

Ahh... the snow is white and crisp and makes that crunch, crunch, crunch sound when you walk on it. The neighborhood is aglow at night with Christmas lights and ornaments. The air is so crisp that you can see your breath as you exhale. The malls and stores are jam packed with people as they shop for their Christmas gifts, all patiently waiting in line for their turn to ring through. The neighborhood kids make snow angels in the drifts of snow in the front yard and have snowball fights on holidays. I love skating in the downtown park and skiing on the local hill. Isn't Christmas great!!! Read on
