Here is Jack baking cookies for Santa
And topping off the Christmas tree
Here is Scott carving the turkey on Christmas day
And Jack putting together our very first gingerbread house.
We spent Christmas Eve tracking Santa's progress, eating nachos, and watching Santa Clause Conquers the Martians - a tradition we started the year Jack was born.
It was wonderful to spend the holiday at home, although we did miss seeing other members of our family. Our thoughts were especially with my sister, who is spending the holiday season in the hospital. We also couldn't help thinking about Scott's dad, Grandpa Jack, who passed away in October.

Jack and Scott will continue to spend lots of time together until after the New Year, when our schedules return to normal. Until then, work on Bog Ridge has slowed down and we are just enjoying the extra time we have together.
(Hey, wait a minute! Did you see trim on those kitchen window? Yes you did, and it is gorgeous. I think you had better scroll back up and take another look at Scott's craftsmanship.)
