christmas is upon us...

Life really does seem to fly by with a toddler in the house...phew...Christmas is already here. Hard to believe!

The little ones are tucked in bed as I write this, hardly able to contain their excitement about what awaits them in the morning. I have a load more baking to do tomorrow (family gifts are all baked ones). I feel extremely grateful, happier than ever, if not a little worn out. Did I mention I have a toddler in the house? :-)

And Grandma, Grandpa and Sandy and Mom...if you read this...I'm woefully behind on mailing out letters/cards and photos...please be patient with me, and know that you're really and truly in my heart and mind...and it is absolutely my new year's resolution to be more on top of my written correspondence! Er, did I mention that I have an energetic toddler in the house? hehe

Grandma, I made your chocolate ripple cookies today, as I do every year for Christmas. They transport me right back to my childhood every time and I'm so happy to share them with others every year.

Wishing you all a very merry christmas, with lots of love and good memories. We're thinking of all of you...especially because we're so far away!
