what a fun few days.  we have been making rather merry, our little family of three.  lots of quiet and sweet moments together PLUS plenty of incredible memories made with our families.  don't you just love Christmas?  is anyone else kinda sad that it is over...already?  wow.  this season has flown by so fast!  i just want to rewind and then experience it all again in slow motion.  has anyone figured out how to do that yet?  nope.  okay.  well i guess that i will just have to relive it through some of my favorite little snaps.

i hope you had a most lovely holiday.
