the end

so here we are, the end of the line! phew. I think I will make the photos into a book one day soon, a record of our year.

if you were following us then let us know with a hello in the comments! and if you feel sad that there are no more you could always sit through my nearly 17 minute year end slideshow a few times to get it out of your system.

i hope you all have a great 2012!

i may be cleaning glitter up in the kitchen until after christmas but here they are, our snow globes. upon my suggestion the kids agreed that a homemade snow globe (accompanied by some homemade preserves) would make an excellent present for their teachers. i don't know if they'll like them, but we are quite smitten. only one more day and then two weeks of us all home together!
