Month of December 2019

Piedmont Trails welcomes Christmas and all of it’s glitter and twinkle. Cherished memories cascade through the chilly days and just may-be a glimpse of Santa too. The kitchen begins it’s overtime duties as the baking of cookies, pies and cakes are sifted together. Warm apple cider by the fireplace as the crackling of the hickory and oak begin their song. An old picture found of long ago with presents under the Christmas tree. Smiling little faces as they peer up at the camera. These are just a few joys of the season with treasures from the past, present and the future. Welcome to December with Piedmont Trails.
