The holidays were pretty busy for the McDermotts. By January 1st all of the spirited shopping, cooking, working and a trip to Tahoe had come to a close. Looking back, while its all kind of a blur, it was an energetic and memorable time.
The week before Christmas, Tori, the kids and I all stopped by Hallmark’s Home & Family to spread some holiday cheer, share our Christmas tree selection outing and show viewers how to make my Candy Cane Yule Log.
T gave an excellent tutorial for a fun DIY craft for the holidays, that heck, you could do year round with the right decorations.
Then, Christmas morning was a hilarious time with the kids. Liam and Stella thought Santa had come in and wrecked the place when dropping off presents, but were eager to dive in and see what their good behavior in 2012 earned them. Those kids are a riot. Liam is always full of funny comments, like his wisdom on my 2013 resolution.
After a year filled with every kind of emotion and event – new life and scary moments, chaos and big accomplishments – it was just great to spend a holiday with the family. They’re a wild bunch, this gang, but they always support me, and always make me proud. What more could you want to carry you into the new year? Hope your 2013 is off to a great start!
