Catching up…

I just realized I never shared our Christmas and Winter Solstice pictures.  I took a mini break right after the New Year and have a lot to catch up on.  As much as I love words and writing down thoughts, I don’t feel like sharing them unless I have photos too.  My camera has been noticeably absent lately and my hands are itching to take pictures.

The big gifts for them this year were, remote control truck, Barbie dream house and a polaroid camera.   Yes, we are that family that has the Netflix fake fireplace playing in the background.

It was  great to see family that we hadn’t seen since last Christmas Eve, letting the kids play with cousins and catching up with family and friends.  It is a long day, then once home Ben and I always have some finishing touches before we can go to bed and Vita tends to get up before 5:00 a.m. Christmas morning.  We convinced her to sleep with us for a couple more hours and she held out until about 7:00 a.m before waking us all up to open the gifts.
