Merry Christmas from the Extension Staff By Johanna Hicks

               Christmas is a joyous time for reflecting on the birth and life of Jesus, and how we are impacted by the ultimate gift He gave us.  One of my favorite family traditions is that of pulling out a collection of Christmas books, mostly children’s books.  I remember growing up in Cleburne, TX, sitting on my daddy’s lap as a child, listening as he read story books to my family....
