Almost ready...

.....for  Christmas!!

.....the  tree's  up--love that  pine  smell......

......the  presents  are  wrapped....well  almost...I  tend  to  go  a  bit  overboard  when  it  comes  to  presents.....


....baking  cookies...double  batch  of  this  kind...a  family  favorite!

And....I've  still  been  taking  time  for  myself....


.......some  sketching....

So...whatever  you  may  be  celebrating......I  wish  you  all  Happy  Holidays!!!
