Merry Christmas everyone from all of us at Our Little Red House. Hope you all are out in the world loving life and spending quality time with your love ones. I would like to share with all of you some of our favorite Christmas cards we received last year along with some of our family’s old photos from past Christmas celebrations. As you know, I am very nostalgic and very sentimental. So grab a cup of coffee or cocoa and come along with us to Christmas lane…oh,and don’t forget to put some Christmas music on.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family my friend. I am trying to catch up on your wonderful posts. Thank you for the sugar cookie recipe and the other one. I used white chocolate, cranberries, and macadamia nuts per hubbys request. Both batches turned out perfect, and we are still munching on them. I love this post and all the memories you shared with us in it, and the quotes. What joy 🙂
