A school feast, a 5K, lotsa play time with cousins, a small birthday party (more about that later this week), PUPPIES, turkey, turkey, chicken, ham, shrimp, sausage (seriously, all of the meats...and all of the carbs, too, for that matter)....and that was just Thursday and Friday.
Thankfully, Saturday and Sunday were conversely low key. The weather was ice-rainy-yucky-cold-gross, so the kids and I mostly did some spectacular Christmas-movie-marathoning in our pajamas.
But we did get the tree and stockings up, and I made a monster batch of peppermint bark. (Molly Wizenberg's. Go do it.) Oh, and I got our Christmas cards addressed. So it was a decent start on the holidays, at least in all of the cozy ways.
Hope y'all had safe travels and too full bellies.
