The first picture is just to show you Karsten's favorite place to chill. He sits there to eat snacks, read books, drink drinks, and put on shoes. He loves that step-up. As for the other two, we tried to read a wintery/Christmas-y children's story every evening in December. We didn't succeed, but having the goal made it happen more often than not, anyway. The kids loved cuddling up next to Dan in the evenings (he was always the reader). Christmas time is such a cozy time of year.
