merriest of seasons

It has been a perfect holiday here at home, with equal parts business and relaxation, excitement and calm, and so much abundance all around around. It snowed just a little bit.

Each year that passes reminds me how lucky and blessed we really are. 

The Christmas shopping gets easier every year as all these kids grow up. The handmade gifts for our own two continue though, and for that I'm thankful. Miss Maggie Rabbit for N- now named Jane- is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever made. Well loved already. J asked for warm slippers. I used this Kwik Sew Snuggly Slippers pattern, which came together easily enough. I stitched a piece of suede to the bottoms for durability.
