One very cold day we headed back to Connecticut to our favorite Christmas Tree farm. Nobody noticed when Chica left the car without a jacket so she and Chris went back to get her bundled up and then caught back up with us.
The farm had cleared out substantially all of the trees in the area we had found our last two trees, but we headed there anyway to see what we could find. We came up empty and headed back to a new spot.
Then we had the annual preschool gingerbread houses! I went in to help Chica and her classmates. The last gingerbread house making.....sniff sniff.
The rest of the holiday went smoothly. The gifts that were a hit for the kids were: Ipod Touch for Jack, Guardians of Ga'hoole DS game and books for Ben, Nerf Gun and DS games for Luke and Furreal Pet for Chica. It was the best Christmas yet for me as a mom. Everyone was healthy and happy.
