Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Ho Ho Ho

Hi Blog. Well, that was a nice long break!

We did a lot and saw a lot and ate a lot. That about sums it up.

Not really! Here are some photos.

Christmas was great. Every year, I am torn by the materialism of it all vs. the desire to have a low key simple holiday. Usually the materialism wins because 1.) I can’t resist indulging the boys while they’re still in the Santa stage and 2.) I run out of time to make all the stuff that I want to make.

We always spend Christmas Eve with Tom’s family. Biggest does this annoying thing now where he sticks his tongue out in all of his pictures.

He and Tom were twinning, complete with matching tongues.

Santa came after dinner, as he does every year. The kids all know by now that it’s not the real Santa, but there is always a lot of speculation about who will have to conveniently “step out and take an important call” just before Santa arrives. For those wondering, it was Steve.

Christmas morning is so so so fun with kids. (See the tongue again?)

This year, Littlest asked for a hoverboard and a husky (as in the dog). We didn’t get him a hoverboard (because of those terrible explosion stories) and didn’t get him a real husky either (for obvious reasons). Santa did, however, bring him a STUFFED husky.

That Santa! It goes to show that you have to be very specific in your letter to Santa. He loves his stuffed husky, by the way, and named him Max.

Sammy got a new blanket. He claimed that as well as Coal’s new bed as his own. Sammy had a very good Christmas.

I got a lot of wonderful gifts, including these beauties. Who doesn’t need some really fuzzy pink slippers?

I rarely get to wear them though because they keep getting stolen by little boys who think they are the funniest and coziest things ever.

My favorite part of Christmas is the after, when everyone is happy and cozy and we sit down to breakfast.

These two made fresh squeezed orange juice. It tasted even better because they looked so cute making it. It was a real team effort.

After Christmas, we went to New York City and the Beach, but those are stories for another day.

Hope that you had a great holiday!
