Our Daily Story: Welcoming Christmas Break
With sleeping kids and a husband that's waiting to watch a movie with me, I'm sharing a quick little snippet today and joining in with Ali Edwards, while I continue to share a bit of our December story. Part of our story today includes my Paisley girl throwing up in the car after eating a hot dog from Costco and getting car sick.... darn it, she totally has inherited that from me. Another part of our story from today is a morning spent with sweet friends from church, eating cookies and drinking coffee. But, in between the morning with friends and the Costco trip that ended badly with the kids, what was most memorable today is that we welcomed winter break.
We welcomed it loudly and I couldn't be more excited to have all my kids home everyday. For the next couple weeks, I won't be rushing them to the car in the morning and I'm so looking forward to slower days, more time to be creative with them and do more of the things that we enjoy doing together, but never seem to have time for.
In the car line this afternoon, I queued up "Wizards in Winter" on my phone. As Judah hopped it, we blasted it loudly and drove off hootin' and hollerin'. Christmas break is here and we're ready!
So, for tonight, I'm done on the computer and I'm off to watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with Jeremiah, while I fold laundry.
Happy Christmas break to you, if that's something that's relevant in your life right now. What was the best part of your day today?
A little throwback Thursday to wrap this up....
Exactly one year ago to the day. They were so small!
