hello again.....







I am back (for the most part) after a very cozy holiday with just the four of us. With family so far away, we made the best of our intimate gathering with a stream of days filled to the brim with baking, crafting, and just fun hanging out with each other. With little M now at a "mature" 3 1/2, the ability for him to wander about the house with his brother without our constant supervision made the environment completely different from holidays past. It was so much more relaxing, and thus marked this next stage we have entered with both boys getting that much older. After a week filled of cozy fires, cookie baking, gingerbread house making, holiday stories, hot cocoa, (with whipped heavy cream and red dusting sugar....yum), snow playing, delicious food, and a few tantrums here and there (we are a family with kids afterall) we are slowly trying to transition ourselves back into the usual routine.
I hope everyone had a wonderful time with friends and family, and here's looking to an amazing new year.

see you soon.......

hey beth.....it's fast and easy on picnik. (i think it's picnik 3 that has the collage option.....it's free, but being that I didn't go "premium" I was limited to four square max....)
