At the cabin...

We celebrated our holiday with part of the family early. We had a great dinner (thanks Lo!) and played board games. Opened presents for the kids and just enjoyed the snow.

I made "pajama bags" for the cousins this year and filled them with a few toys, two new pairs of and pj's each and of course a good bed-time book.
(The idea came from the "Creative Family" book Soulemama.)
