Merry Christmas

Hunsperger family Christmas 2016

Regular readers of this blog know that earlier this year I started a blogging streak. Christmas Day marks day 214. Since it is Christmas I decided to share a little holiday spirit.

Skiing in Michigan

I am grateful that I got to spend the past week with my family and not have to worry about getting up at 1:30 a.m. The break has been amazing and I got to knock two things off my bucket list: visiting Michigan and going downhill skiing. 

Christmas Tsum Tsums
My mom's health has been a big concern this year as she is battling cancer for the second time. Last month we learned that the chemotherapy has contained the disease to the bladder and next month surgeons will remove the infected organ. Spending the last few days at home with my family has been very important to me. For me to be able to do that my friends and coworkers had to hold down the fort. So thanks, guys.

A dip for the Ugly Christmas Suit
I can't go without recognizing my buddy Tom Harness, the Ugly Christmas Suit Guy. This year he raised more than $5,000 in his suit for a group called The Promise. They provide for those in need in southern Illinois. Tom worked tirelessly since Giving Tuesday to raise money, food and awareness for The Promise. Mission accomplished. Thanks to all who gave and to Tom for putting himself out there once again and reminding people what the spirit of the season is all about.

From My 1-2-3 Cents and the Hunsperger family, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Thanks for your friendship and support.
