A Very Merry Christmas


I'm winding down after a busy week getting ready for the big day. I'm not one of those girls who loves to shop so I was glad to have my sister in law in town to help me finish up just in time. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve with my parents, inlaws, sister(and hubby), brother(wifey), and all the kiddos. I was thrilled to get a fabulous art set from my mom! Just what I wanted! I love my mom! My inlaws spent the night with us and enjoyed watching the kids open their presents the next morning. My son Collin was literally jumping up and down when he opened his giganto lego set, "The Battle of Endor". He said, and I quote, "This is the best Christmas Ever!" My daughter is all about the clothes and was very happy with her gifts. It was a great day. I was able to take a nap and my husband spent the afternoon building legos with Collin. Later in the day we watched a dvd my mother gave us of the day my son was born. I didn't even know it existed! My kids were glued to the screen totally mesmerized. There was my sweet baby boy, brand new being welcomed by his new family. Emma was 5 at the time and so precious. I loved hearing her little voice. In the video I'm laying in the hospital bed and she says, "Mommy why aren't you wearing shoes?" Too cute. It sounds cliche, but it really reminds me how important it is to enjoy every moment together, it is going by so fast. Today I'm finally getting the house back in order and getting some laundry done so I can get back to stitching and painting. Hope everyone had a Happy Christmas!
