A White Christmas...just as we wished for.
The snow flakes started to fall with a whisper on Christmas eve. We had dinner and drove the children around town taking in all the sparkling lights as we watched the wipers swish to and fro. It was magical.
Fresh children from baths donned new cozy pajamas, per tradition. Hot chocolate by the fire as giggling filled the air. Stockings were hung and four children were tucked into bed.
We awoke to pitter patters on the stairs and hushed voices discussing whether it was too early to wake us up or not. The big daddy and I wore exhausted smiles. It was, after all, a special day. We tromped down stairs to see what magic had been brought.
'Twas a delightful day. Quiet. Just as we had hoped. Gifts were opened and shared. Our handmade holiday gifts exchanged (more to share later). The children giddy with the day.
Grateful. So very grateful for my little family. Simple was the best part of the holiday season.
Hope your holiday was lovely.
***This post we meant to arrive after the Holiday. Instead, I scheduled it for December 28th 2014 somehow. oops.***
