For the past several years, my mother-in-law has treated all of the girls in the family to a day at the spa after Christmas. We each pick whatever treatments we want and enjoy being pampered. After we’re done at the spa, we head over to her house and watch a chick flick and have dinner together. It is always a very lovely day.
