we’ve been having some deliciously rainy days this week.  the rain makes it feel so much more like winter.  at night it gets so cold that by morning the rooftops and grass are covered with ice.

so we’re lighting candles, sipping cocoa, wrapping gifts and of course, making lots of jewelry.  we decorated cookies with friends this week–which basically consisted of piling on as much frosting and candy as possible. i’m really excited about the gifts we got for the boys this year.  for their big gifts, david is getting this and matthias is getting this.  they’re gonna love it.  the month goes by so quickly, i’m trying to soak it up!

what’s your favorite part of the christmas preparations?
