Writing about the holidays now is a little like going to an extended relative’s house in January and having another Christmas… fun but it feels a little odd.
We’ll just get caught up quick and move on. To possum yarn. No seriously. Really, this time for real.
We had a great trip to visit the grandparents and aunties and uncles… Little E made out like a bandit with books, toys, and more outfits than one little girl probably really needs. Her favorite part of the trip was smiling at all of the new faces, and being the center of attention for about two weeks.
She sported reindeer horns (a longstanding tradition in my family)
Helped make press cookies (she REALLY liked the jars of sprinkles)
Was introduced to a special gift from Grandma – Badger Annie!
Met her cousin for the first time and celebrated New Year’s Eve in a snazzy outfit.
Cheered on the Packers (Her daddy actually went to the game in Green Bay… brrr!)
And had fun watching the Badgers in the Rose Bowl… despite the loss.
Returning to our little house under a hill in MA was a little dreary – only mommy and daddy and the kitties to play with! We’ll be trying to spice life up in the near future by attending some classes – yoga? Dance? We’ll see.
Ok, the holidays are caught up.
