happy holidays

We've been getting into the spirit of the holidays around here, baking, and gifting, and visiting with family. This has been a difficult year for our family as we have lost many people and the holidays only seem to reinforce this. It's difficult to ignore their absence or the hole it is created in our lives, but it also is impossible not to feel the joy of Christmas when I see my kids' excited faces. They make it magical!

The kids made some delicious cookies and also a beautiful fleece tie blanket for their nana last night. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Happy Holidays!

  1. Hope that you all made it through this difficult time! The holidays can make it the hardest to move on.
    The kids look like they had a great time with the cookies and presents though!
    Have a great New Year!
