We are spending the holidays at the Husband's parents' house--four dogs romping about, cookies in the oven, holiday music. I am excited about gingerbread; I've been thinking about it ever since I read this post. I think I will try this recipe.
I love the posts that put you in the holiday spirit. I've felt under the weather and stressed this early December--with my grandfather passing, the fire, applying to graduate schools, and now a cold that is approaching from the back of my head, spreading toward the front--I hadn't felt terribly festive. However, I just have to leave it up to some of my favorite bloggers & flickr folks to make me feel a bit more in the spirit: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
Their dogs: a black lab-mastiff mix named Chance and a yellow lab mix named Sassy (who truly lives up to her name). Two golden dogs, two black dogs, and four humans, chasing them about.
Outside, a windy storm, cutting off power in other areas of the city. It is our second storm of significance, and neither have hit us at home.
