On Monday we had the solstice celebration at my house, complete with dinner and a candlelight ceremony from mom. Very fitting way to celebrate, best new tradition yet!
Jump ahead a week or so and it's Christmas eve at my Mom's. We had Mom, Matt, Deb and Denali, Brandi and her baby Jasper, and Peter. Yes, Peter! Live and in the flesh! Cookie decorating, lots of baby time and some presents, it was great.

|Easter egg dying? No! Christmas cookies!|
I managed somehow to end up with not one single picture of the cookies, but I can assure you they were fantastic- especially the red ones.

|I'd say the little boys but, well...|
|Possibly the best picture I've ever taken.|
|Outta my kitchen!|
