Remy, gazing at the family tree - perhaps eyeing his new ceramic food bowls under the tree. ;)
Homemade minestrone soup and snack tray for dinner:
It started snowing in the morning, and continued off and on throughout the day. I forgot to take a picture of my plate (TJ's Turkeyless loaf, candied sweet potatoes, steamed green beans with toasted almonds, bread), but here is the tablescape and the evening snow:
Lastly, Shen had asked for about my gifts. I asked specifically for stud earrings, jewelry cleaner... And a wood floor mop. Ha ha! I know, so practical.
As you can see, there was also a necklace (two actually - I was wearing the other one), a gift card, and socks. Not shown: the mop.
Looking forward to the second week of vacation, but not necessarily a New Year! My goodness time keeps moving too quickly! Holy moly! See you soon, hoping your holiday was wonderful!
