Despite having to miss her first-ever school Christmas party due to being sick at home, Alena enjoyed lots of cuddles at home today.

It actually was a fun evening of family Christmas shopping and dinner out!

And we're back to the holiday train, another year older!

What a privilege to observe Alena's growth and creativity. She intently explained to me how the girl in her drawing was thinking about all the different things that could be in the present. :)

I think I gasped in surprise when I walked into my office this morning.

Leaving for work this morning, I thought our house was looking quite quaint and cozy. :)
