How was your holiday? Fabulous, I hope. Ours truly was.
The boys have been so wonderful, I can't stop squeezing them. They tell me I can always hug them tight no matter who's looking or how big they get. I intend to hold them to that quite literally.
There are still new toys strewn about. No one can bear putting them away, including me. Besides, I need to figure out how half of them work before the older boys go back to school and littlest one looks at me expectantly. Although I should point out that we didn't go all high-tech this year. Lots of new board games for the game cupboard. Just in time for winter, thank goodness.
Here is our Christmas card for 2011 (though on the real version our last name is included). I did it on Mixbook, which took over Scrapblog (the company I used in 2010 and 2009). If you click on the thumbnail, you should see a full-size image. The photo outing was rather painless, though I must remember to share the out takes to reveal the true goofy nature of the shoot.
I've been taking it pretty easy this holiday. And it feels ridiculously indulgent. There has been some knitting, lots of baking, and even some furniture refinishing I will post about. But not now. Now is for hugs and empty laps to fill and tummies full of cocoa and jammies until noon. As Leo said, "this is the life."
May you enjoy this special time of year as well.
