O49“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Zoe: she is out of focus, but she’s excited that her fairy got a new string for hanging on the tree…
Ezra: making rubber band bracelets…
Zion: watching andy carve our second turkey…
Axel: not real happy about his photo taken while eating his turkey leg… 
Ottilie: oh, she loved hanging her new owl ornament… 

christmas season is here and our home is merry & bright. as i sit here by the fire, with my family, i remember this past week and all the fun that was had. sunday night we set up our christmas tree and decked it out with ornaments that bring so many stories. andy & i each have our own childhood trinkets that are both sweet and silly, and fun to share with our kids. later in the week, andy’s parents came… “papa carol” as ottilie now calls them, and we had thanksgiving number two with them on friday; which was as delicious as ever.  and this next week brings many goodies… a bit more time with the grandparents, our christmas cookbook club, a charles dickens festival, christmas baking and more festivities with friends. plus, with all the cold weather we’ve had (which has been quite a chill), i’m really holding out hope for a white christmas here.  it would be the first for all of us and be a dream come true. ahhhh. happy holidays to all!!
