Half Way Through

After spending the last two days cooking and hosting, it will be nice to take a break before getting together with our other side.   Although it was fun, and I was well prepared so everything ran smoothly, it still tired me out.  
Sitting down at the computer and having plenty of time to type up a few words and play my part in a link party while sipping my tea, is a wonderful thing.  While some people have not even started their holiday obligations, mine are nearly half through.  
My munchkins go back to school on the fourth, so that leaves me with plenty of time to snuggle up and enjoy my little family of four, (10 if you're counting our pets).  Yes, we are outnumbered by the animals we so love.
I've really enjoyed visiting the blogs during the link parties, and it is great how everyone returns the visits.  It truly is a wonderful community, and one that I don't have to venture out into the cold to enjoy!  It just doesn't get better than that.  
That said, my internet wasn't working properly on Friday, so I have some catching up to do with my share of the visiting.
Wishing everyone a cozy and Merry Christmas!  

I'm sharing this little winter montage over at The Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday, and also at NatureFootstep.

    1. I have never seen a Christmas without snow. It came very close one year, but then snowed on Christmas Eve, and yes, it felt very strange! Merry Christmas to you!
