Well, the boys managed to recover from the croup without any visits to the hospital (although it was near thing, and thank you very much for your prayers), we had a nice visit with my parents over Christmas (they left this morning in a brutal cold wind, probably thankful they live in Tennessee), Christmas does not get put away until New Year's, my nausea is slowly improving, and Andy and I are trying to relax a little in the face of some stressful but probably not bad news which is making our outlook for the new year a bit uncertain. It's been a bit of a long December, a cold December, a December not half as snowy as many have experienced, but as always, in spite of everything, Christmas comes no matter that you've only baked one batch of chocolate chip cookies and didn't have a chance to make the traditional Christmas morning cardamon bread, and the year changes and time moves on.
The kids have spent a lot of time doing this over the past few days:
That would be playing Wii. Actually, the grownups played quite a bit of Wii, too.
I think everyone had a good Christmas.
But I didn't take too many pictures.
