Frothy chai made with our fancy new milk frother. I still like using my hand pump one that was handed down to us last year by my Aunt. This does make the milk hot, though, as Tom likes to remind me. And, it is really fun to watch it happen as my friend Lea likes to remind me.
Our new kitchen table art caddy given to the children by my parents. This was a perfect holiday gift because it gave us a new way to use our old and new art supplies. Rather than storing all of the art supplies in one area, our new art station makes creating art a bit more portable. The kids have been toting the caddy into the living room to draw by the fire and then back to the kitchen table to make cards and posters. A nerdy confession: I actually really like re-organizing it at the end of the day. It reminds me of my little plastic desk organizers from when I was ten. The one that was shaped like the letters of my name with a little drawer under the "m" for my rainbow paperclips made my heart skip a beat.
New paper for making collages.
A new notebook for keeping track of important things. check!
A new succulent for me. I also bought myself a new fern, and I promised her I would mist her each day. She is a beauty and she'll make her debut soon.
For now, a hot shower awaits.
