But it's sort of a blur and I'm not sure I could even remember enough to type a story. I will say - School is out. (CUE ANGEL CHOIR - ENOUGH SAID)
We wrapped up at the beginning of the week and Big Guy is two hours out of his last exam. And my shoulders are starting to relaX.
This weekend felt like the official kick off of our family Christmas season ( a whole 5 days before Christmas) when we had a house full of people, loud kids, way more dough and sugar than should be legal, Christmas movies past all the parent's bedtimes, The Singing Christmas Tree tradition (starring our own Sweet Girl), some drive-by lights, more coffee than sleep, and the last of the shopping.
It's all good stuff from here. The fun part. Where the weary world (and weary moms) rejoice at last. - More time to enjoy the people around us that God has given. More time to remember and reflect on Christ and the new life we have in Him because of that first Christmas.
And those dear ones we call family~ more time to look into their eyes and just listen and laugh, and read two extra books at bedtime, and squeeze necks and chubby cheeks a little more. And prepare for the cousin extravaganza of a lifetime x2.
We are so blessed and I will record it all one way or another.
In the meantime - I got a chuckle out of this sweet video. And then a few tears. It's time for Christmas ya'll.
Merry Christmas from our team to yours!!!!
