Holiday Season 2021

 December was a busy and fun month for us.  Arlington wrapped up her first semester Sophomore year at UMass, we had my parents here for a few days through the New Year, and even had a nice New Year's Eve breakfast with our neighbors.  The holidays are always fun, and always go by way too fast.

Arlington and Finley took Scooby and Arlington's bunny, Gaston, to see Santa at a pet store

This year's game

Mat and I watched "Squid Game" this year, and I decided to make one of the games for fun for Christmas morning.  It was much harder to make than we expected, but worked out and we had fun with the game.  Finley was the winner

New Year's even breakfast with our neighbors the Martins and my parents

In the evening we went to a New Year's bowling event that was a ton of fun.  Food, games, countdowns - so glad we went.

One of my favorite Christmas presents - Mat got me a clock for the kitchen that I wanted.  Fits so nicely with the rest of our new space

Local Christmas Bizaare

 One of the things I missed about Littleton when we lived abroad was our local bizaare around the holidays.  Local groups and non-profits bring in crafts and wears to sell on the first Saturday in December.  We always find some treasurers.  I am on the Friends of the Library Board, and so I worked their table.  After being gone for a number of years (and this Bizaare not being held last year because of the pandemic) I got to see so many people I haven't seen in years.  So fun
