It’s been a fun week of no school and Blaine home from work. All in all, quite lovely. It snowed last weekend and left us with a white Christmas. It’s since melted, but the kids had a blast in it until then.
Christmas Day was a blast. We opened gifts, made a big meal, and hung out. I made these hoodies for the girls. I’m impressed with myself… and I learned from a friend that I NEED a Silhouette machine. Amazing, I tell you.
Blaine suggested twice baked potatoes for dinner and it turned into far more than he anticipated. But they were fun. And delicious. And kind of ugly… by again, delicious.
The day was just our family, but it was lovely. We had a feast, read of the birth of Jesus, and had such a great day. The knowledge that my years of all my children home, together, for these holidays could be limited as my children get bigger hangs in the back of my mind. I’m holding on to these days.
Back when the kids kids entered the thanksgiving coloring contest at the feed store, Sterling and Ruby pooled their winnings and bought ME a gift. I love it.
I hope and pray each of you had a great day as well, and were able to celebrate the birth of our Savior with ones that you love.
