Christmas baking (which in our house means a couple of last-minute things made on Christmas Eve (Vegan Gluten Free Banana Bread and Super Spicy Ginger Cookies).
Relaxing because all of the gift wrapping was finished days before.
A very peaceful and contemplative Christmas Eve service at our church.
Christmas morning crepes and sausages and lots of coffee and exchanging gifts with our best friends (LEGOs! A new doll! And for me... a starter kit to begin beekeeping at last; something I've wanted to do for years and years and years).
Christmas evening spent with the Farmboy's family.
New Year's Eve spent with my family (So. Many. Cousins.)
We are blessed in many more ways than we deserve. With friendships and family relationships and a church congregation to which we truly belong, heart and soul. With a home that brings peace and comfort in the darkest of hours. With so much that I could never express, including YOU.
Thank you for coming back time and again, even when my blogging consistency is extremely lacking. I appreciate you more than you know.
