I like the Christmas season. I like my family, cooking, eating, and feeding others. I really enjoy being in the midst of IT: people I love, old stories, gossip over the stove, babies tugging on me, normally sullen teenagers who just can't keep it up around all the frivolity, and sleepy daddies snoozing in the den.
Today I stepped out of the IT and went to work for awhile...
Gift wrapping with Zee. Note the multi-use laptop standing in for a tabletop surface.
Then I baked with Mama. I know, I never remember to take photos of the finished product. We made Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sinful Fudge, and these little strawberry cream cheese 'refrigerator cookies' which are fabuloso. (I will post the recipe later.)
Finally, Christmas with the maternal side of the family. This is us after spaghetti dinner and desserts - sacked out on the couch. Even the Wii was too much for us when this photo was taken.
