Day 8: TubaChristmas at the Kennedy Center. It was packed, but from her perch on daddy's shoulders Mayumi could see the lovely brass.
Day 9: Baking bread and delivering it to the neighbors. Mmmm, maple oatmeal loaves with homemade peach jam from the summer harvest.
Day 10: Visiting cousins in West Virginia and exchanging gifts. We brought home a box of homemade cookies!
Day 11: Attending the Christmas party at church. No photos - I opted to attend a satsang and Mr. Q was too busy socializing and watching his little three year-old to play photographer as well.
Day 12: Christmas Concert at the Stake Center. More musical merriment and treats to boot.
Day 13: Decorating cookies. Taking a page from my sister-in-law, we made an array of cookies to deliver to friends: gingerbread, sugar, fruitcake, candy, chocolate chip, jam, etc. A complete sugar fest.
Day 14: Oh no -- it was inevitable that Mayumi would catch something. Since she's not feeling too hot we're taking it easy and watching the Grinch today.
