the snow came down heavy this past week and i steered clear of the computer to enjoy the coziness and prepare for christmas. cate had friends over for hot chocolate and christmas crafts; i baked and baked and still didn't get treats to everyone, but you have to know when to quit; shipped out cards and presents and etsy orders; and, of course, we settled in for a few long winter's naps. i wish i would have taken more pictures of the snow... it was so beautiful! but now we are in snowless arizona enjoying the mild weather. have a merry christmas, everyone!
