Our first day of the Christmas vacation, sunny, clear, and cold spent at the beach. A much needed break for all of us to be together...and I mean all of us. Jake came home too! So good to get him home. He is doing great at his new school. I thought we started the break off right...beach in the morning, lunch at home, followed by making peppermint bark, stringing cranberries and popcorn, and ended the day with an evening of the kids' favorite family Saturday night...ice cream cones and a nature movie.
