Dear fellow homeschool moms and friends,

Below find links to Christmas family friendly sites that I have been compiling for a few years. You’ll need a cup of coffee or tea if you prefer and plenty of paper for your printer. some I have used and some I haven’t but, if you’ve received recommended sites from me before these fall along the same lines;
F4: Faith, Family, Friends and Fellowship.

I hope you are able to use some of these links to make you holiday season more memorable.

Merry Christmas,
Monica
