today could not have been
a better day...
picked up my girl in moncton yesterday
and took her home...
Christmas Eve with carols and
melted popsicles in a glass of sprite
(which is sooooo good by the way)...
family and friends and lots of laughter.
the yearly tradition of
singing "total eclipse of the heart"
at the top of our lungs
in the car.
my mother in law's eagle brand squares.
acknowledging that our kids are getting older
and christmas traditions
will shift a little
but that's ok...we just have to
adapt and overcome...
so this morning we ate breakfast
and it was fun to torture them and make them
wait just a little bit longer
to dive into stockings and santa presents...
and yeah...maybe it's not every year
that we have to trek out to the shop
to see where santa left
our girl a living room couch & chair
and a kitchen table and chairs...
and where he left our boy
(that's what he wanted...really...weirdest christmas ever)...
but it was so totally worth it.
an hour long nap on the couch.
christmas presents and dinner at my mom and dad's...
an exciting game of minion "pie in the face"...
dart guns and wrestling matches,
tickle fights and so much laughing...
hugs and teasing and telling stories...
coming home to a beautiful wreck of a living room...
tired and full and so content.
cold can of diet coke,
my new slippers,
a fuzzy blanket and a movie
for us both to fall asleep to...
today could not have been a better day.
merry merry merry christmas... ♥ ♥ ♥
now bring on 2017!
