Enjoying the season--sights, sounds and smells. . .is something burning???

Miss A and Miss O were making cookies this afternoon. They put the last batch in the oven, and then disappeared. No one was around to hear the timer go off, then I was making pizza and turned the oven up from 350 to 475. Slowly each member of the family in the house says, "Um, what's that smell? Is something burning?" I opened the oven and found the girls' last batch of cookies, nice and crisp. . .yes, something was burning

Our outside lights. Ben did an awesome job.

Ben and Mr J inspect some lights that have gone out.

Our tree--I think this is its last year. I want a taller one.

This is what I am using my fishing line for this month. These replaced the pumpkins from Thanksgiving/Halloween. I have yet to find snowflakes for January. . .

Love that fishing line. . . .

It wouldn't be Christmas without the Grinch! What a classic!

Some of my amazing GNO (girls night out) group for our Christmas progressive dinner. Friends make life so sweet! I don't know what I'd do without them!

Mr J hangin' out with Grandpa.

Miss O plays her recorder in the school Christmas program. It sounded beautiful.

Miss E sings her heart out in her school Christmas program--like heavenly angels singing. Love the sights, sounds, and most of the smells of this time of year!

  1. Lights look awesome. Kudos to Ben. And sorry about the cookies.

    Jen - you still need to reveal (or maybe I missed it) your secret of how you keep the fishing line attached to your ceiling. Are there hidden hooks up there I'm not seeing???
