Okay, so maybe we're not really in the bleak mid-winter yet, but we did get snow on snow on snow.
Actually, the snow was perfectly timed. I ran out with the girls on Saturday morning for a few last gifts, and then we hunkered down to clean and bake and wrap. Mission accomplished!
These last few days of Advent are starting to speed up, and I am more determined than ever not to speed up with them. I am forswearing the craziness this year.
The kids and I have been entranced by this Christmas carol lately:
Yo-Yo Ma + Alison Krauss = instant fave.
Take a deep breath, my friends. We're almost there.
