We didn't get to make our usual trip to California this year, so we made Christmas at home, just us. It was definitely sad at moments - missing the rest of the family - but mostly it was really fun making great memories with the kids.
Earlier in the week we tried our hand at making Christmas cookies. I am no baker, so it was interesting! It all worked out quite well, and I must say they were delicious! Gregory enjoyed helping at every stage and did all the sprinkles himself. He really let his creativity shine!
We decked our halls and even though we didn't get a white Christmas, it felt quite homey and festive. Well what Christmas tree and mountain of presents doesn't feel festive? Gregory could barely wait until dawn broke before getting started on the unwrapping! Many thanks to all those that sent gifts - each and every one is truly appreciated! Your thoughtfulness made us all feel so special!
Hope you all had as lovely a Christmas as we had!
