to sum it all up....



:: pre-holiday teacher gifts ( add a touch of panic to the scene when viewing this image, as we suddenly realized that our "plenty of time to do it" attitude wasn't going to work at 5pm the night before our last day of school....)


:: enjoying our freshly popped crackers at the table for our Christmas feast (note to self: the cheap ones may have some questionable little gifts, but the crowns don't slip down over little ones' noses, thus eliminating any potential dinner meltdowns...)


:: just enough food to feed the bellies....


:: Another "injured" foot appears that also needs plenty of rest and a pair of proper crutches like grandad's ...(my broken down swiffer sweeper version of crutches was just given the evil eye...)


:: a new striped floor finally comes in, just in time to greet the new year.....

::and there you have it. It may have been a holiday full of stress and worry, but there were enough of those little moments in between to still make it a very special one (and not to mention memorable......)

Happy New Year everyone!
