Skating Day

New skates from Santa.
A quiet little park in our sweet little town.
Shaky legs for about five minutes, then back to whipping around like pros.
Like riding a bike.
Hot chocolate in thermoses.
Sister plans and secrets and choreographed routines.
Free fun.
Nothing better.

Christmas Memories

Flannel jammies opened up on Christmas Eve.

A retro, old-school preparation on the ham, which made it mighty tasty!

The rest of the food...

The family at the table.

We had a great time feasting, opening, giving, resting, celebrating. Now, on to the new year!

Hi Again

Wow. I haven't blogged for more than a year, but it's good to be back. We'll see if I stay awhile again. It's winter again. Christmas again. The darkest part of the year again. But already, we've turned back toward the sun. That is definitely a good thing.

We had a lovely holiday. Eric's parents are here. My girls were happy with their presents. Life is good. Really couldn't be better. I'll try to keep blogging. Thanks for checking back! Happy Holidays all.
