Christmas, 2015

The weather has been crazy warm; so warm in fact, that our roses are blooming.

This was the extent of my tree decorating this year. Our Christmas decorations weren't put away in an organized way the past couple of years, so today, Steve and I took advantage of the great weather and pulled everything out on the deck and went through it all. Next year should go smooth as silk.

We always have the kids over the day after Christmas, as it makes it easier on them.

Stephanie had this shirt made for Steve in Togo; he's a Georgia Tech graduate, and it was clear that this was his favorite gift.

Steve and I love preparing lots of food for the kids; some are vegetarians and some are major meat eaters so we have quite a variety, including some leftovers from my parents.

I have another full week off of work and I'm planning to take Gracie's advice: relax in the sun.

Although I do hope to knit a bit. Cheers!



  1. Looks like a lovely holiday!
    I have not been very productive during this break; I think I really just need to relax!

  2. That's pretty much my favourite colour of roses. Merry New Year!
