In the car. So much in the car. We drove all around the great state of Michigan. I’m going to guess we spent 12 hours in the car over the course of the past week.
How do you deal with travel/seeing family during the holidays?
My pear loaf turned out wonderfully. Will totes make it again.
I was thinking about doing a vlog on what we got for Christmas, but is that totally materialistic of me?
Speaking of gifts, I started to feel a little guilty about only buying the kids one toy each for Christmas. We tried this this year:
So, since I was feeling down about it, I went and bought Ellen another gift right before the big day. When Christmas morning came, she opened a few gifts, and then said she was done. She didn’t want anything else. We think she was a little overwhelmed. Anyway, the point is, I took back the other toy I bought and felt pretty good about the fact that she was fine with less. I really hope I can somehow keep that feeling alive.
I need another blogging thing. I’m thinking outfit posts, recipes, photo dumps, something. Thoughts?
I’m not huge into New Year’s resolutions. I mean, they’re fine and all, but I just figure anytime is a good time to make a change, right? But, this year, I thought it was appropriate to institute a change in our family. So, starting January 1 we are going to make an effort to celebrate the liturgical year. We already have Hallie’s cookbook and Lacy’s curriculum. Are there any other resources that you like? What traditions or celebrations does your family take part in? Lemmeno.
Update: Just read Kelly’s post about this. Awesome.
