Twas 2 days before Christmas and all through the house, mama was frantically wrapping and hoping she didn’t lose a single present.
So far, so good. Yes, the wrapping isn’t finished but the shopping is. We were very mindful of the gifts we got the kids and for the first time, I’m convinced we got it right. Despite my urge to BUY, BUY, BUY for my family, I didn’t. We picked things that I’m sure the kids will love and left the rest at the store. Quality over quantity.
Santa is a Very Big Deal around these parts and it’s a joy to watch the kid’s anticipation. They got their annual video from Santa last night and I thought the Bean’s heart was going to jump out of her chest as she waited to see if she was on the Nice or Naughty list. You could see her body visibly relax when she found out she made it on the Nice list (by the skin of her teeth). Scorch played it cool, but his white knuckle grip on the table during his video gave him away.
I hope your holidays are blessed with family, friends and more love than you could imagine.
