We had such a beautiful day that, well, I forgot to take pictures. But I wanted to come on and wish everyone a wonderful holiday weekend.
I made more sweet and savory snacks than usual and Patrick and I cooked together. The food is pretty much all gone. The boys gave us beautifully thoughtful gifts. We gave money to the boys, as requested and I managed to get some little tiny stockings from the Dollar Tree and embroider their initials on them. (while watching a favorite movie...bliss) I put the money in them and placed them on the tree. Next year I want to do more but this year it was enough and they seem happy.
We enjoyed visiting and laughing together.
Earlier in the day, Patrick and I watched some silly and sappy Christmas movies together. That is one of my favorite things. :)
And now the day is winding down. I'm thrilled that it's still the weekend. The holiday pressure is off and I have time for crafting whatever I want. A new year lies before us, new and full of possibilities.
Life is good.
