We had FIVE holiday celebrations. They were all just right, but left us quite drained as we returned home after being away. In all of the celebrating I’ve barely had time to consider what my word for 2011 will be. While I let those thoughts percolate, I thought I’d share some glimpses into our holiday adventures.
After our solstice celebration we had our traditional Christmas breakfast with my parents and my grandfather came, too. And we forgot our camera! But it was a morning full of good food, company, and smiles.
Our third holiday celebration was with L1’s father and his wife. As usual it was a relaxed, fun affair by firelight and candlelight and full of good eating.
L3’s violin made the journey with us so he could keep up his practicing. He was able to play for his grandparents and they tried it out, too. Lots of fun to see grown-ups trying to hold a half-size violin and then to play it, too!
I’ll be back tomorrow to share our adventures on ice skates as part of holiday celebration #4!
