Despite all of the decorating, baking, shopping and gift wrapping, Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without family. I traveled back to the Midwest to spend the holidays with my sister and her family. Being able to experience the magic of Christmas through children's eyes is a wonderful gift. All in all, it was a fairly quiet week, spending lots of time with my nephew and nieces (all three of them, not only adorable, but smart as whips!), baking cookies, cooking, fixing snacks, playing, playing, napping, then playing some more, making crafts, coloring and opening lots of gifts! And with that, I bid adieu to the 2010 Holiday season. As always, happy to see it come and happy to see it go.
