Christmas presents

By Shelley Heaphy

Christmas, a wonderful, heartwarming time of year is almost upon us. It is less than a month away and there is still so much to do and prepare for. From the long list of people to buy for, to the baking, decorating and all the events that surround Christmas we are working on making Christmas magical for weeks and weeks.
I love all the traditions we have at Christmas time, most of which cost nothing except time together as a family. We enjoy making ornaments for friends and family, attending local parades, making gingerbread houses, baking for our neighbours, decorating the house, all while listening to Christmas music and drinking hot chocolate. These are the things that create the most memories with our children. The memories and all the smiles you help create are really the best part of Christmas.
