Some rather random pictures of Christmas. I realized I never actually got out the camera when everyone was together. Ah well.
This is mid December. Can you imagine it being this warm in the frozen north? So warm that our October Pumpkin is still not a frozen/thawed mess?
Christmas Eve was 70 degrees and windy, so we took a walk to Grandma and Grandpa's
Lily and Gilbert being zombies
Lily and her walking stick
Clouds scudding across the sky
Hoyt's windblown look.
Before Cody left, he put a front loader on the Deutz. Which made it rather Christmasey.
Making sugared cranberries
Justin and Dad helped Gilbert put a new toy together. They both had things to say to whoever made the erector set. "You can't even get the wrench in there to tighten the nut up!"
Oranges and pinecones
My sugared cranberry cake. I really liked it actually.
A blurry picture of Lily and Orianna's wool felting projects being started. Dad says I depend much too heavily on Justin's goodwill when choosing presents for the kids. Which is sort of true--"Well that looks annoying, but Justin could probably figure that out..." It is a good thing I got such a nice Daddy for my kids.
Mom had some leftover decorations from work, so the kids got to decorate a little and they were quite pleased with themselves.
