Holiday recap

December was stress-free for a change.  Decorations went up right after Thanksgiving and gifts were wrapped early.  I managed to make it to all the kids holiday activities at school.  My Christmas eve dinner was catered.  And I didn't get sick till after Christmas.

Christmas looked something like this...

Holiday buffet.

Gingerbread house making

Sticky fingers.

Permanent ink stains.

And snowflake frames.
