Good morning everyone and a very happy holidays to all of you. We are waiting for the kids to rise and the chaos to begin. But joyous chaos it is. They have been camping out in Courtney’s room since 0330 waiting to come down stairs, Courtney in her mattress on the floor and Sawyer lying on the floor by her side. We spent the better part of an hour trying to get them to settle back to sleep. I peeked in on them and the image of his bare feet sticking out from under the thin single blanket will stick with me. Even without a whole lot of sleep we count these as the best of the best moments.
The kids made a snow man in the yard yesterday. As you can see this is no ordinary snow man. From the depths of their imagination came the magic, the magic that is our Christmas, where snowmen can water ski! Courtney lost another front tooth last night and so we were visited by the Tooth Fairy and Saint Kick all in one night. Does it get any better than that. So with all the fears that we as parents have about our children valuing the magic of Christmas, giving with love, and receiving with grace, I think we do OK. Our children shine with the light of the season.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good. Enjoy the magic.
