i should go back and date these for accuracy...but these blog books are for my kids to know who i was...and i'm no longer the mom that blogs in "real time." ;-) ha! and, with a baby here now, i don't know how many minutes i have...so we're doing this in "parts".
we had an AMAZING christmas break. the kids were off for 2 weeks. and they were off for nearly a week BEFORE christmas day - which is rare! i feel like, usually, they get off dec 23 or something. and, BOOM, it's christmas! it was fun to have those days to do "christmas-y" things without trying to cram them into the everyday routine.
sawyer picking his cookie to eat after round 2 of cookie making and decorating. i ate SO many of those things!
