Stay-cation: Ross’ Day!

I was excited that I drew Ross‘ name for our family’s Stay-cation!

Our Christmas “Gift” (Colorado, Part 1)

Matthew had an INCREDIBLE idea… Instead of buying GIFTS for Christmas, we’d take a FAMILY TRIP instead. We pitched our new idea to Rayna.  And, just like we thought, our (“Quality-Time,” traveler, snow-lovin’) gal was SOOOOOO.ON.BOARD with this new idea!  So when we got a big smile from Ross (whose #1 “Love Language” happens to […]
