Our holiday season this year was festive and fun. We stayed put in Maryland for the first time ever and while we missed our usual trip to Ohio, it helped to keep the Withers household well rested and less stressed. My brother came from Berlin for the week and mom and dad made the now-shorter trip from Virginia for Christmas weekend. Good times had by all and Elli especially loved all the wrapped packages coming in the mail.
After completing the dining room table just in time for Thanksgiving, I kept the pressure on and was able to finish a wall clock for Cheri with about 24 hours to spare.
Cheri is back to work now and Rory is making friends in the “Baby Bears” room at daycare, so we are adjusting to the new schedule.
Elli is in Ice skating lessons and seems to be having fun. The rink has cool frames the beginners can use to support themselves as they skate around.
