Wesołych Świąt or Merry Christmas

It is finally here…. Wesołych Świąt or Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

On Saturday we had our annual church Christmas party, which is one of the highlights of the year for us.  You can tell everyone who helps plan this event puts a lot of hard work into the part, whether its cooking, planning games or planning a few surprises.  This year once again was no exception!
