This Holiday season has been extremely busy yet at the same time extremely enjoyable. After my class was done we were able to participate in some of my favorite things to do around this time of year.
1) We got to spend time with both families. I consider it a tremendous blessing that I have two families that I care dearly for. We spent the weekend before Christmas with the Colborn side of the family.
The rest the week we were able to spend with my family. This was a great treat for all, considering that this is the first time in a little over a year that my parents and all my sisters and I have been together. There are eight grandkids to my parents between the ages of 6 mos and 11yrs. Needless to say it was a bit hectic but it was great. We truely did have a lot of fun together.
2) Baking. I grew up in a house where we went somewhat hog wild baking at the holidays and have since grown to love doing it myself. However my schooling the past two years has messed up my baking schedule so I was all the more happy that everyone was gathered together this year because I got to do some baking with them again this year. Of course the kids also enjoyed this long time tradition.
