Merry Christmas to All!!
We had a wonderful Christmas. Everything about it was lovely.
Yes, we were all together. The night before Christmas Eve we got nervous that Alice was getting sick, she vomited a lot and her tummy hurt and she seemed warm (temp.) We watched her closely and she improved, we were thankful.
Natalie wanted to be sneaky and set up a video camera so she could catch Santa. The video worked, however, Santa had put his big red bag right in front of the camera...not knowing ;) All she saw on the video was red and she could hear bells jingling and Santa saying Ho Ho Ho as he left; even then, she was thrilled to have something magical on the record.
When morning came (at 4:00 a.m.) the kids could not have been happier. Tyler and I felt like we were in a story book. Everything was perfect and wonderful.
We have so much in which to be thankful!
Many of our blessings now and over the past year, etc. have come by way of others....in many forms. It is an amazing thing to witness the inside of another's heart. It is also amazing how much happiness and gratitude one heart can hold without bursting.
