After a pretty full holiday season, we can finally get back to our normal routine. School will start again on Monday. No more packed weeks with too many places to go.
We had a good Christmas season with lots to do. But I found myself not taking very many pictures. There has been a serious lack of motivation because my pictures have not been turning out how I would like them to.
It has seriously taken me weeks to post these pictures for that very reason. So my New Year’s resolution (even though I don’t do resolutions) will be to take more pictures. We’ll see how that goes.
Anyway, this year we started a new tradition–making Christmas cookies. We’ve done this with other families in the past, but this year we tried it on our own. I will just say that it’s time consuming and messy with 4 young children, especially when you’re the only adult helping out (Don was sleeping.) But it was so worth it because of how much they enjoyed it. Here are just a few shots that I took over the TWO DAYS(!!) that it took to make them.
I wish everyone was in focus for these pictures…but these faces are priceless 🙂
the boys got to help out with the whole process
these little moments between brothers are the best!
