The In-Between.

The In-Between.

My last post gave you a glimpse of what Christmas looked like for my family this year, but there was much more that went on between the tree-hunting, decorating, cookie-baking, gift-giving, and picture-taking than was documented, so this post will be filling in the gaps.
