I realize that I am a few days late, but if you know me... you know that I am totally okay with that!
We had a great holiday. The house was calm and quiet.
In fact, the boys are off sledding in the mountains today~ which allows me time to blog, clean the chicken coop, and get some stuff done around here.

|Christmas Eve 2012|
Christmas morning was....well.... the gift part was quick ~but the aftermath was worth it. Everyone was busy playing... including me, as I learned to tune my ukulele and play a few tunes via the internet. I don't do anything Christmas day... I make cinnamon rolls the day before, and plan a few snacks... and then we order Chinese food for dinner. We have done this the past 4 years~ and I love it! It gives me the opportunity to be in the moment the whole day... not thinking about what needs to be started, what should be cooking now, or what is next. I get to just "be" and play with everyone else. We ended the night with a Happy Birthday song and cake for Jesus~ and a game of progressive rummy with some good friends.

Well, I sure hope your holiday was bright and beautiful~ Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
