I have not taken many pictures at all lately, partly because my kids are so independent that I no longer spend most of my time with them and partly because a certain 10 year old is avoiding my camera. We've had a good Christmas season, but I don't have a lot of photographic proof. So I'm combining it all into one long Christmas themed post!
Early in December we gathered with church friends to make peppernuts for our church's annual cookie sale. Rachel is not the enthusiastic cook that her sister is, but she couldn't turn down the opportunity to hang out in the kitchen with friends.
A few days before Christmas we invited over church friends who were in the midst of a family crisis. The two sets of sisters decorated cookies and giggled and hung out together all day. Rachel loved having company and all four girls enjoyed the day.
