Catching up with 2012

I meant to post a few of these photos and thoughts before the end of 2012.  Here's a few little missing bits from our December.

1. I finally mastered the perfect caramel.  I purchased a candy thermometer, and boy did it help.  These puppies were not too soft nor too hard.  I made 5 batches of caramels this winter.

2. Santa... Nicholas saw Santa three times.  Here he is at Chris' work.

3. Christmas day. YEAH.We took no photos. How can that be? Here are basically the only two.
