The Cheer was Here...

Well, it happened much, much later than normal, but finally, I found my Christmas cheer. Just two weeks shy of Christmas, it tiptoed softly into my heart and filled me with the welcoming warmth of the holiday. I enjoyed every last minute that I could.
I wrapped gifts, hosted a gingerbread decorating party, baked cookies, watched Christmas movies, went looking at Christmas lights, bundled up and sipped warm drinks. All in all, it was a pretty good holiday, considering some adverse situations in the family.
Now, here we are... starting a new year. The year in which my new baby will be born. And hopefully, a better year for so many people who need to see life look up a little bit.
A few pictures from our holiday:
