December 30, 2012 9:57 PM by Devon Alley
Well, here we are at the end of 2012. Much to my daughter's relief, the world is, in fact, still here. Christmas came and went with a whirlwind of visitations, wrapping paper, sugar cookies, and gingerbread. A. is spending the rest of her Winter Break Read More...
