I said the Donkey all Shaggy and Brown

Santa brought stockings full of chocolates and treats.

We loved having most of the presents in cloth bags. We noticed how quiet the unwrapping was--none of that dramatic....r...i....p--and how little trash we had. Instead of a huge garbage bag, we ended up with this:

After a long, lazy morning of opening gifts and digging into our new books and games, Nels and I took a walk to a nearby donkey farm.

I sang carols to the donkeys and the entire herd came up to the fence to listen.
"I said the donkey all shaggy and brown..."

We ended our day with a feast and a family showing of "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe".

It was a lovely day.

I love that photo of the cute donkey, covered in snow. I'm glad that it was a good Christmas for you and your family. Happy New Year!

Oh my goodness, I love donkeys, there are so so sweet!

This was the first year that we had no paper at all under the tree. We don't have official gift bags but I always wrap our gifts in fabric. I have noticed in old Christmas photos and videos that I am always obsessively gathering up any wrapping paper as soon as a gift is opened. This year was so much nicer, quietly folding fabric at the end of the morning.
