fa la la.

Happy We-Almost-Made-it-to-Christmas! Phew.

This week has been a whirlwind of preparations and social gatherings. I just put my kids to bed and they only have 2 more sleeps until Santa comes. This is so exciting.

Behold an incredibly random selection of photos from the past week or so.
We'll call it the pre-Christmas Photo Dump.
cozy by the Christmas tree.

December does not keep us from the playground.

brrr.  And no snow. 

This is Tim.  If you live in this part of Maine, you already know Tim.
  We wore green and red on our last run together, but not on purpose.
This is Tim's daughter Hillary who also was once a student in my class.  She is making gingerbread houses with my kids. 

Indeed, Reed had two whole Twizzlers on his roof.

Reed's Christmas Card to his Kindergarten teacher. 
and on the back:  "I'm sorry I'm wiggly."

I surprised Skyler and showed up at her school Christmas party. 

and I made this pretty salad with pomegranate seeds, candied almonds and edible flowers.  I told you this was a random selection. 

Christmas party at the home of three former students.  I love knowing them as adults and being a part of their lives. 

Like I said, I don't need a thing for Christmas.  I'm all set.

Enjoy the festivities, all of you.  More soon.  xo
