For a few days prior, we wrapped gifts and baked cookies and tried to remember all the verses of the 12 Days of Christmas, even resorting to asking strangers in the grocery store for help with the words. Reed's strategy, when in doubt is to sing/shout: "FIVE GOLDEN RINGS!"
Seriously, the kids were so good. They were cheerful and helpful and full of smiles.

Christmas morning! So patient.
Reed got a football for Christmas and a lot of help on his technique.

Besides all of this loveliness, I also got a new Magic Bullet Juicer for Christmas from my mom, and I have been juicing up a storm all day. That thing is awesome. Speaking of storms, my kiddos are off for their 2nd Christmas (not a bad deal, they think) tonight and we are about to hunker down for a snow storm (finally!). I have popcorn and a fireplace and snowshoeing and Mediteranean Chicken in the slow-cooker in my future.
Happy (happy, happy) New Year to all of you.
