Christmas season is upon us, and we are in full swing around here. The tree is up and decorated, signs of Christmas are scattered around the house, most of the presents are purchased and wrapped, the stockings are hung, and the children were finally old enough to help with a lot of it this year. Today, it flurried outside, so we spent some time together baking and decorating gingerbread cookies. Ahhhhh, Christmas. My favorite season of the year!
