I cherished the mantle,
complete with a photo ornament of each child from each year of their lives. They’re going to thank me for that some day.
We made our annual gingerbread house, decorated and designed, and, okay, fought over, by three creative kiddos!
We treasured skiing time with cousins.
We basked in a Christmas that, for the first time, we had all to ourselves. Here is the crew, waiting to go down the stairs to see what Santa brought.
They loved it!
We had lots of joy and merriment and also quiet moments and simply time for time together.
I hope your holidays were filled with bright days and quiet nights. A few more deep breaths and it’s 2012. Get ready to forge ahead!
I just became a subscriber for 24 days of glam, which I loved. I haven’t had time to look around your blog yet, but after seeing the fantastic photos above, I will make time!
