I really hope that you all had a wonderful holiday. Ours was so nice. We stayed home, and our families came to us. We spent time slowly opening presents, building new toys, cooking, eating, and enjoying time together. It is my favorite day of the year. Here are my two favorite pictures from that day, I think they are both pretty great. Christmas with kids is so magical.
Since then we have been enjoying a slow and indulgent week at home. This is the first year we've had a kid in school full-time, and I didn't realize how much we missed downtime and a lack of schedule. It has been theraputic really. Here are some of the things we have been enjoying:
Snow! We had a tiny bit on Christmas day, but we've gotten several inches since. Isn't it beautiful?
New boots from Steve.
New music. I don't know why it took me so long to buy this album. It. Is. Amazing.
Lots of reading, as in a whole book in 2 days. This book was pretty intriguing, but not as good as her first two (which I adore and have read a few times each).
PJ days. The kids and I have spent most days in our pj's, only dressing if we have to leave.
And some knitting of course. One of my closest friends requested a honey cowl, how can I say no to that? It is such a fun, mindless knit, perfect for a week like this.
As always, I'm a bit sad that Christmas is over, but I'm looking forward to a new year and a fresh start. I'll be back soon, I'm looking forward to working on a year-end wrap up post. :)
