{ 10 on 10 December }













Highlight's of the day:

cream of rice with agave + cinnamon for breakfast/o.j.
brown paper packages, tied up with string
bright eyed Lucy, and her two cute teeth
many cups of hot tea
pretty cookies, made with love by dear friends
vintage Christmas packing
birthday soup( that's what we call it...otherwise known as Chicken Tortilla Soup )  made for me by this dear friend + my cozy new slippers, brought home along with a big stack of Christmas cards for me from Costco the view from my front porch looking in
drive thru nativity
Sleeping under the Christmas tree

Not pictured: 

the new back porch and steps my husband whipped out over the last 48 hours
yet another batch of almond roca, which deserves a post all of it's own
piles and piles of tissue 
Jack's face covered in blue food coloring. Did you know that you can scrub away at the nasty stuff with soap and hot water with hours or tooth paste will take it off nicely.
