Quiet

It's been an oddly quiet holiday season this year. Though we had larger family celebrations before and after, the three normally bustling days (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve) were spent quietly at home with just our little nuclear family. It's been nice. Delightfully boring. (Though some of us are getting a little restless by now - Maddie has draped her bathing suit over the couch, hoping it will subliminally convince me to take her to a pool.)

We've all found plenty of time to enjoy our gifts and some of our favourite pastimes (or is that pass-times?)

The book lover...
The art lover...
The music lover...
And the other music lover...
Watching them enjoy their new toys gave me plenty of opportunity to enjoy mine.

Perfect. In my world, too, books, cameras, art and music are the #1 favourite things. We added a fun dimension to it this year: Rock Band 2. I don't recommend it, though, if you want to have time for all those other things :).

I like the quiet New Years Eve.
I feel safe and snug. And then I wake up feeling good on the first day of the year.

Perfect photos to start the new year.
