we love christmas break. i seriously don't think i have ever been so mellow and peaceful about christmas season in all of my adult life. i wish there was more time, but i've really tried to let the things go that i can't get too. i've been loving all of the family time, over indulgence of food and decorating with the kids. we have had some super chilly weather but hardly any snow...which i can't say bothers me (...ok, maybe a little on christmas eve/day would be just about right..?) i believe at this time last year we had already been snowboarding.
honestly, it's pretty sad to admit but i rarely pull my camera at home lately (..actually for a long while now. i had a little burn out...and the phone cameras are so handy and convenient!) but this week i have really been trying to break the habit and i remember how enjoyable it is to document life.
...and christmas cards. especially this last week- i think we've been getting 3 or 4 a day and i LOVE it!! i think its about time i make another card holder because this ones been bursting at the seams and we have to tape them to the wall.
tonight my mom and sisters and i were all able to spend some quality time together. it's the first time we've been together since corinne moved back to utah. it was heavenly. i am so thankful that all of my siblings will be here during the next little while. i love them.
