It felt a little as if our Five Family was the most over-scheduled it has ever been, over the last five weeks. As a result, around mid-night on December 23rd I declared "Enough. I'm exhausted and stressed. We have yet to just really relax and enjoy our children..."
We hunkered down and spent a few extra hours more than usual, just being in our home.
First a little Christmas Eve cookie decorating.
Matching Christmas jammies.
And Tink receive her HUGE bag filled with ten pairs of jammies. Have you ever seen a child so excited and in love with pajamas?
Though admittedly, ten pairs of pajamas costs WAY more than one may realize....
The best part of our Christmas morning:
we gathered around the tree and listened to Tink play Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. As a non-music player, it is amazing to see her tiny fingers dance over the keys.
I hope everyone in blog world felt as lucky as we did.
