I found my favorite Clark W. Griswold quote from their famous Christmas movie and I just had to cross stitch it.  Smiley
The picture did not come out good using the graph chart software, so I was gutsy and did this bad boy FREE HAND!

I'm very proud of myself and will add some poinsettias in the section that is kind of bare to the one side.
My bf loves it and it's our first homemade Christmas decor item for our first Christmas together. Thanks for looking.
