some holiday cheer on the darkest day

I have never felt so much anticipation leading up to the winter solstice.  The days are getting longer!  Something about having small children, kind of brings out the seasonal affective disorder in everyone, no?  I broke down and bought a light lamp.

Can’t say I’ve been as swept up into the holidays this year, but in keeping with tradition, we got our year’s ornament and a special one for our newest family member.  Everyday Graces was kind enough to make Evie a suitable stocking; we chose the fox because, despite her docile nature, she reminds me of one in the way she curls up and sinks her claws into my neck (lovingly) when I first pick her up.

Cookies and blow-outs (in explanation for the nearly naked babes in the bleak midwinter, or late autumn) with some of our favorites.

    What a wonderful way to start the first day when days get longer! I think your family is the reason that the sun is coming back. 🙂
