Merry Christmas Mom!

Hi Mom!

Well, your gift bracket was very exciting this year (as it always is). We had lots of good gifts, but the winner and consensus all-star gift this year was your very own cooking website.

We’ve bought you a domain name, set up your web hosting, and will show you how to use it. You can add recipes, create categories of food, and even post what you are cooking that night so that everyone of your kids can visit your website and see what is up in Kays Kitchen!

We love you Mom! Merry Christmas!

– Your family
