Happy Holidays

This is mostly a photo dump of our morning for family.

We had a wonderful quiet day, mostly spent eating and playing.

After the last few storms, we have been incredibly thankful that we were warm, dry and still had electricity.

I sincerely hope that you were also warm, healthy and surrounded by those who care.

Happy Yule and Merry Christmas!

Late advent and Christmas Eve

We baked cookies and mince pies,

christmas bagels,

and a gingerbread house.

We decorated

and decorated.

Made grinch cookies,

stained glass window biscuits,

and lots of sugar cookies.

Lots of sprinkles,

and icing,

and sweets.

And we finally completed our advent puzzle.

Our two boys




a good


isn't easy,

even when they are trying hard to cooperate.

Advent interrupted and a 2nd birthday

Too many events, tummy bugs and a visitor,

have meant that I have struggled to keep blogging,

while life went past, too quickly.

This cat is a shameless photo bomber. I took 6 photos of hatchling no5 opening this present, and in every one, the cat is going past, in a different direction.

These two boys love trains.

Hence, a very large bridge was quickly assembled, with the new train tracks.

City planners.

And city destroyers.

We now have plenty of track. What we need, now, is a larger sitting room.

A big brother's enthusiasm makes any present ten times better.

And cake.

For a bashful boy.

Happy 2nd birthday hatchling no5.

You bring us joy every day, and you truly are a blessing.

I will try to catch up with the advents tomorrow.
