This is going to be one of those posts with random tidbits, a few photos, and bullet points. Ready?
I'm working on my Christmas cards. I love tinyprints. Every year they have such great designs to pick from. With my husband being a graphic designer, I'm choosy about things like that.
Taking the picture for the card was a hilarious process. We did it in our bedroom. It involved a tripod, a timer, 4 children, and a santa hat that wasn't cooperating.
I'm running slightly behind on most everything. We just cannot get out from under these germs. It has been a tough season for us. I'm chalking it up to public school. Hannah has a double ear infection, a sinus infection, some kind of respiratory thing happening, and pink eye. The others are hacking up a storm and we are going through lots of tissues. Needless to say, there are a few bottles of that pink stuff in my fridge and I hate that.
Speaking of school, I'm gathering my thoughts to summerize our experience so far. Look for that soon.
Speaking of running slightly behind (and 10 days left until Christmas!!) I love this cookie recipe. I made the icebox version with crystallized ginger on the edges. Yumm-o, and, um, totally cinchy. Make the dough now, bake them later.
I haven't done a lot of decorating this year, but lights are always a must. Isn't there something just a little bit magical about their glow? A few weeks ago I ordered several Christmas-themed books from our library (they send them right to my mailbox!!) The TV has mostly been ignored, and there has been a lot of evening reading happening. So far, these two books have been our favorites.
Okay, I'm out of time (baby crying in the the next room) and I'm out of pictures to share. I'll be back soon!
