For those of you who follow the blog, you’ll know that holidays are pretty big in our house. As I was looking back over photos from the last while I realized I hadn’t shared anything from last Christmas (gingerbread and cookies galore), Easter (Ukrainian Easter eggs and a visit from the Easter Platypus – because bunnies don’t lay eggs), or Halloween (we do take our pumpkins seriously around here).
