What Christmas looks like
Building a tradition – Saturday, December 8th, 2012
No trip to see Santa is complete without also stopping by the Lego Store for their limited edition holiday set. Last year was a Christmas tree, this year is a rocking horse!
An old friend – Sunday, December 9th, 2012
One of my favorite ornaments from childhood, now on my tree.
Every generation – Monday, December 10th, 2012
Tip top – Tuesday, December 11th, 2012
Our tree topper. Punched tin, made by my Dad. I get my craftiness from both of my parents.
All the snow in Houston – Wednesday, December 12th, 2012
Advent activity: make paper snowflakes. Why yes, those are Tardis and R2D2 snowflakes.
Baby’s 31st Christmas – Thursday, December 13th, 2012
Today’s representation of me would be holding my knitting, covered in cat hair, kissing The Scientist, with Charlie trying to climb up my leg.
Hold him close – Friday, December 14th, 2012
I was going to take another picture of an ornament today. And then Newtown happened, and none of that mattered anymore. Parents huddled close and cried together at Charlie’s school. We were anxious to see our kids when class was over. I hugged Charlie extra tight when he came out, and then we went and got ice cream. Charlie thought it was just because, just because some days we do extra special things for no reason. He has no idea, and we won’t tell him. He’s too young. Later we watched a movie together and ate popcorn, and today I am lucky. So, so lucky.
