Christmas Day was awesome from the gifts (both material and spiritual) to the prime rib dinner. I especially gave thanks for the five teen angels who made a wrapping paper mess of the living room and squealed with delight at their presents (both given and received).
Christmas Week was filled with challenges and triumphs...more later on this...but the triumphs outweighed the challenges.
Dad's birthday (12/30) and New Year's Eve/Day were spent away from home. We headed to New Hampshire in search of snow fun for a few days...we've enjoyed:
- ice skating,
- swimming in the pool,
- snowball fights and fort-building
- sipped hot chocolate,
- toasted marshmallows,
- ate S'mores,
- played light up frisbee,
- threw snowballs
Happy New Year!
