I love the Holidays!
This year my boss, that would be me, has given me from Thanksgiving to New Year’s off. Yay! Time to savor the holidays. I’ll be working on my Family History Project and planning some big projects for next year.
And I’ll be sleeping in.
And eating really unhealthy food. Can you say Chocolate?!?
And watching my favorite holiday movies like Holiday Inn and The Santa Claus trilogy.
I can’t wait!
But before I go, I want to share some articles I found that will help you and your Special Needs Family have a Holly Jolly, Safe and Sane Holiday!
