I took pictures of the tree the other day during the snowstorm. Every afternoon I would sit by the tree to relax and read for an hour. It was so pleasant. Years ago, I made these little stockings, one for every family member. This year I hung them on the tree.
Mr. Joe and I frosted what seemed like hundreds of sugar cookies. I make them every year as the kids LOVE them.....so do I. One year I ran out of time and didn't frost them under the guise that I was saving everyone calories. That just didn't fly with the kids, and I was almost banned from future Christmas celebrations.
