fires and cocoa and quiet

ride1

this would have been elisha’s preferred way to travel up i-95 to the grandparents. fortunately for us we limited this method to cracker barrel parking lots.

fires have been blazing in the fireplace.

christmas morning was filled with generous and thoughtful gifts, panettone, and lots of playing.

and my sister-in-law and i came up with perhaps the best “dessert for when you’ve already had too much too eat” – ginger almond biscotti with chocolate-y christmas cafe au lait.  we decreased the amount of sugar by just over half in the drink and put it in china teacups so we could at least try and not drink too much.
