We hope everyone had a joyful Christmas this year! Emerging from a week of relaxation in Spirit Lake I am feeling dazed to say the least. Where am I? What day is it? What YEAR is it? Blog, what blog? Now that we’re home and back into the daily swing of things, it’s time to share some holiday joy! The past few weeks have been a blur – just like every other holiday in my experience. Emerson spent Christmas with my family this year and since being home we’ve noticed some definite spoilage after constant attention from aunts and grandparents!
Emme was the first to begin opening gifts and the last one to finish. Her attention span was stretched to the max and an intermission nap was granted half-way through. It’s always fun to see what she gravitates towards most — never what I would have predicted! Christmas day was very relaxed and involved lots of food and Scrabble in our P.J.’s. The rest of the week was spent with visits from family/friends, lots of naps, an overnight trip to the Grand Falls Casino for my mom’s birthday, a run-in with Newt Gingrich, several movies, a
sprained BROKEN ankle and finally a New Year’s Eve slumber party in Humboldt with Emme’s cousin, Piper! Phew! We had some fun times, but it sure is great to be home!
Here’s a random sampling of the past few weeks to help ease off the holiday high!
