Dear Friends and Family,
'Tis the Season to give gifts to your neighbors and friends... and while I love that, I'm looking for a simpler healthier Christmas this year. That is why I'm going to ask the following favor:
If you want to give us a gift, please don't bring candy, cookies or baked goods to my home as a gift they will just be thrown away. It sounds harsh, I know, but fact of the matter is I can't eat them and john should not eat them by himself.
Instead I'd like to see things like homemade gifts or mixes, maybe your favorite recipe... or, perhaps the best gift of all, a personal card with your sentiments or a hug and a Merry Christmas are just as perfect too.
