December Happenings

Where did December go?
We've built lots of fires and spent hours sitting on the hearth.

We've done a little school, but not as much as I had hoped.  I think I say that every year.

We've eaten lots of these.  They were my grandmother's favorite candy and we always have a bowl of them lying around in December.

We've worn our Christmas jammies.  But not as funny as these Christmas jammies.

Samuel was in a piano competition.  Could he be more handsome?

I've had many cups of coffee in my favorite new mug.

We hosted a dinner party.  I got to use my Christmas Spode for the first time.

It was a delight to have the Cupps in our home, all the way from Uganda.


And doesn't a clean counter feel good any month of the year?

We've been to Costco about a million times.


We've twirled, which is very important to do at Christmastime, I think :)

I made these cookies.  Oh my.  They're good. 

I baked them in my Christmas apron.  Thanks KDS.

He saw this and squealed and wanted to buy it for "someone's baby."

He wanted to know how much his head weighed.

We've done some Christmas shopping.

I've played Guess Who with my favorite seven year old.

We watched It's a Wonderful Life.  I love that movie more every year.

Superman became Santa.

We made this collage card.


And passed out these goodies to our neighbors.

Assembly was the most fun part.


Delivery was a pretty fun too.

Who wouldn't want a plate of deliciousness from this cute kid, right?

Merry Christmas Eve Eve to you and yours!
