I always admire people that come up with great ideas……Allie is one of those idea people!!! It was January of 2011 when she started our Christmas Through The Year Group….just make a gift a month and by the end of the year, you have goodies all made and ready to go for Christmas….GENIUS!!! Lots of us jumped on board, and boy did it make Christmas a lot easier. She was an amazing cheerleader, finding wonderful projects to keep us inspired. At the end of the year there were other things calling to her…creative things, so that’s when Darlene and I decided we would hop in and try our best to make Allie proud!!!! We have enjoyed the year of hosting together and cheering you all on, but all the while Allie has still been there cheering us on too!!!! BIG HUGS to you Allie for all your support and friendship, and the big bonus for me is a wonderful friendship with Darlene!! Now we are stepping aside……things are calling us too. For me 2013 will be the year of planning my sweet daughters wedding……and enjoying ever minute of that experience!! Now it’s time to pass Allie’s torch on to Carol. So here’s to another year of Christmas Through The Year. Hope you will all join in. I know she has some exciting things planned!
