|this year's tree.|
so dark so early.
it's a little hard to keep the spirits up when it feels like bedtime at 5 p.m., no? but we do what we can.
some things that shone in this dark day were these items:
1) my house is (temporarily, i'm sure) clean and decked out with decorations made and put up by my kids (plus d.j. and anna!)
|christmas list 2012. a girl after my own heart.|
3) cecily's christmas list with annotations and marginalia. i love this gal's thinking. she's such a good little writer and i really enjoy reading her creations every day.
|this is the annotation to "totoro"|
|in regards to line items "d.s." and "webkinz"|
5) dessert made by the jasplund's. holy, holy. it was one of the best things i've ever eaten: a spicy, dark gingerbread cake topped with a beautiful burgundy pear poached in unsweetened cranberry juice and spices, a dollop of whipped cream.
