Our Christmas tree is up early this year. (Well, early for us as we did wait till 1 week after Thanksgiving to put it up.) Aimee hopes to get me to write the Christmas letter early as well (that is before Christmas Eve). I received a phone call from my little niece Isabella (4 years old). She seems to have remembered that back in the summer we gave her a long yummy red a white stick and wanted to know what it was called. So let’s all remember the good things at this time of year: our friends and family where ever they may be, the spirit of giving to those around us, and most important those yummy red and white sticks.
