on the weekend

Saturday morning, a trip to the corner stand to pick out our tree and then an unexpected visit from Mike's sister.  We decorated and re-taught ourselves how to make paper snowflakes (a little more folding than we remembered), watched Elf and listened to Mike nearly laugh himself off the couch.  Sunday a cookie baking afternoon with Mike's girlfriends from high school and then a late night show from my friend Will.

We've come so far from last December when we spent each day wishing for time to move faster, to get us through the month, for the entire holiday season to just be over.  So I think we were a little surprised at ourselves this weekend.  That we actually felt festive.  I might even say cheery.  So here's to time.  Seems a little more of it has made the difference this year.
