Yesterday when Pip got home, it marked the beginning of 11 days together with no work and no school. Yippee! To celebrate we decorated Christmas cookies. Last year I tried to get all Martha with my Christmas cookies, and was very protective with my decorations.
This year, I decided that though last years were pretty, it’s way more fun to get everyone involved and do it like this…
I do have to admit I am drawn to the perfection of these, which I was convinced I was going to make this year. That decision was made when I was going to get my Christmas cards out before the mailing deadline. Silly silly me. Right now I’m thinking Christmas cards by e-mail so everyone gets a Christmas greeting and not a “back to school” greeting.
And just to let you know that even though it’s cold and there is snow on the ground, we are happy that it doesn’t like this outside our front door. That’s our snow shovel handle sticking up, because that’s very helpful. This picture was taken a year ago yesterday.
