Crazy Kids,  Family


Like everyone, I've been running like mad trying to get things done. Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, printing and packaging charts, checking lists, and stitching models has been the story of my life for about 4 weeks now, nonstop. But I did manage to have some really fun moments in the midst of all that chaos.

Like when Soph and I went shopping at an outdoor mall on a fa-reezing-cold day…

…And then stopped inside Mimi's Cafe for the best hot chocolate ever…

And when we had a gorgeous snowfall and I managed to catch a few of the flakes as they fell in front of a tree…

And we got to watch Sophie sing in her middle school's holiday concert…

And I got to meet a very special friend of Bean's…

And I even took some photos of Sabrina holding her Despicable Me minion, given to her by her very special friend…

And although there were lots more lovely moments, even I know when not to say, "Oh wait a sec while I grab my camera!" 🙂

I hope you're enjoying your December, no matter how overwhelming it may be!

    I wish we had some snow here for Christmas. Right now we’re getting a whole whack of freezing rain. I’m staying put for the day!
    There is always so much to do at this time but I’m glad you were able to enjoy some family time. I love all of your pics. Missy is sooo adorable!
    I hope you and your family enjoy a very Merry Christmas!

    OK, can I just say this out loud? You Stewart women have the most FABulous taste in men!
    And lest you think me completely inappropriate and getting all flirty like with Mr. Stewart, may I just point out that I am, indeed very much so, a committed spinster of the first magnitude, so I only admire from afar.
    Lookie. No Touchie.
    Seriously, though. Lovely photos as always and such a treat to share the holiday with you and your family.
    Happy, happy everything to you and yours, Paulette!
