I was so excited to write a post about making homemade wrapping paper covered in peppermint-scented baby feet prints but that would have required my crafting to have actually turned out to be something other than an unmitigated failure. On the plus side, Will’s feet smell really good and I have a recipe for totally edible finger paint for when he gets a little older.
It seems half of Chengdu’s expat population is decamping to Thailand for the holidays and we are no exception. We will be back soon with pictures from the beach.
Until then, may you have a very merry festive whatever-you-celebrate wherever you are.
May Skype be working perfectly for those of you far from home and may the roads and skies be clear and stress-free for those of you traveling to be with family and friends.
May you hold cups of warm cocoa in your hands, friends and family in your arms, and cute kids and/or puppies in your lap.
And may you be surrounded by sparkling lights, a warm home, good people, and lots and lots of love.
“Someday soon we all will be together/if the fates allow. Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow./ So have yourself a merry little Christmas now…”
