Here's a look at a few of our highlights from our many celebrations, mostly in photos.
Our one Christmas wish that we're hoping to still make come true for ourselves is a new camera - we use ours for all sorts of projects, including our work-related blogs, and the little point-and-shoot we have isn't cutting it! In fact, we missed capturing some of our most enjoyable Christmas moments this year because the only shots we got were un-view-ably blurry. So we'll see what we can find that fits into the budget!
At right above, Mom is opening her big gift - which was kind of a family gift. It's a KitchenAid super-mega-mondo mixer. (Not a technical term.) She was thrilled! Our previous mixer was failing (and wasn't capable of heavy doughs like bread any more), so it was great timing! And, we were able to give that one to a friend of ours who just needs an every-now-and-then mixer, so it worked out great.
There are two "Christmases" I don't have photos of - the one where Sarah went to my ex's parents' house for their family Christmas, where she got a remote-controlled car that she LOVES, among other cool goodies, and also the one with one of my best friends, Tracey, which involved gift-wrapping, briefly, our big mitten-toed cat, Mitts. Let's just say it's probably better that isn't pictured.
Sarah also got a soft blue LLBean winter hat... which she promptly put on, then topped with her TapOut baseball cap.
Word, from our family's Christmas to yours.
