The babies and I spent a night at the farm and had such lovely minutes with the folks. Among other normalish-home-day things we did, I pulled out Mama's stash of magazines and found all sorts of pictures to cut out to make collage calenders for us for the coming year (a project I am very excited about!) Olivia worked on her beautiful layered colored paper art and took turns soothing Mister Tired-&-Teething. We listened to an exciting audiobook and drank hot tea that Mama brought to us on a tray. Spiced apple candle and a red geranium. Simply lovely.

What else did we do? Ate wonderful food cooked & baked by Mama and Livi, enjoyed watching Greta pretend to cook & can, sang songs, drank lots of hot tea, washed dishes, did a few housekeeping dailies, relaxed (I did!), watched a Nigella Christmas episode on the laptop at bedtime, enjoyed being together.
