Recent Holiday Moments

Hello out there! I miss you!!  Just like everyone else, I’ve been so busy with Christmas and lots and lots of people in my house that I haven’t had a chance to post anything. Where did a week go?  It’s still the holidays around here… Michael is home from work, the kids are  home from school, we’re eating and visiting and avoiding most of the every day routine.  I thought I’d just check in and post a few photos from the past few weeks.

Uncle Mark was here a few weeks ago… he’s a fun uncle. My kids think he’s part jungle gym. I’m always a little bit worried for his back and my lamps when he’s around.

These two were dancing angels on Sunday morning then became soldiers, gumdrops and polichinelles in the afternoon. They are busy, busy girls!

Prepping for the Christmas pageant… our church has a wonderful collection of costumes, so much glitter and gold.

Winter at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston. We had never been there and really enjoyed a walk one day.  I suspect that you’ll be seeing more Arboretum photos in the future.

Is this not the most patient sixteen year old sister in the world? Really. I think she was trying to read something.

Yes, that is the computer and I in the sunroom/office! It still needs furniture and shades and decorations, but it’s almost there. I love, love, love it!!

I won this, along with a basket of other baking goodies from Amy at A Healthy Life for Me. We kind of like to bake around here so it was a great surprise!

We made Linzer cookies for the first time (very fun and surprisingly easy)… along with Gingerbread and Christmas Tree sugar cookies…

Life has been sweet…

Hope it’s been for you too.

  1. So glad you had wonderful holiday Love your office too just like my living room I refuse curtains I need to see my SPACE
    Happy New year I have been busy shoveling 😦

    Now a question maybe you know since your recent visit Arnold Arboretum can we walk JT there?

    1. You could definitely walk him, there were dogs everywhere! and it’s a good place for a stroll with your mom, easy walking and you can park anywhere around the perimeter of the arboretum.
