this morning, the Chocolate Gousse and I are having coffee and 

Biscotti on the couch while the boys are fast to sleep. 

it was the best  Christmas, because we were all together. 

i had so much fun wrapping, cooking, tweaking and reshuffling! 

the last gift that i wrapped was Chrislyn's gift!

as i unwrapped gifts and  the comments were,

 "you wrote about this on your blog!"
