we had an awesome christmas. between being abundantly, embarrassingly blessed, and with the several inches of snow which gave the kids daily opportunities to go outside for hours at a time and burn off excess energy, we made time for playing with toys, enjoying amazing meals, watching a couple of movies, playing some games, and just having a great little break.
so much so that, quite frankly, getting back into the routine has been a difficult adjustment, at least for this daddy. i have been thinking that i want to write about our time, with pictures to support my stories, but, to be honest, the hoards of pictures we took that need to be gone through are a bit daunting to me at the moment. i've got emails to respond to and forms to fill out and statistical reports to complete and a sermon to write and so forth.
so you're just going to have to take my word for it. we had an awesome Christmas. and a great new year celebration. here's to a life-filled twenty-thirteen!
ps. i wrote this the other day, and i've been trying to add a picture ever since, but i'm having trouble with blogger's picture feature. not sure what's going on. so you'll just have to imagine a really cute picture of quin wearing a santa hat with his christmas sweater vest. trust me, it was cute.
update: as you can see i had success posting a picture. however, i had to "beat the system" to do it. apparently, blogger is having some known issues and is trying to work them out. in the meantime, sweater vest santa says hello.
