Man! The holidays are busy when you have kids. Who knew? Beginning with the joy that is taking Christmas card photos… Trying to clean up for a minute or two… Spending Christmas day playing… And ending with a really fun trip to PA… We were a busy clan. Managed to knit up a couple hats,… Continue reading happy new year (and all that)
