Happy December, Merry Christmas to all of our friends and families. Happy Birthday to Jesus, this is such a beautiful and blessed day! Missing our family afar but so thankful for Skype, texts, phone calls and email to stay connected. Makes it feel a little less sad to not be with them this year. We had a quiet eve of board games, hot cocoa, snacks, treats, movies and traditional Christmas cartoon specials of Twas the Night before Christmas, The Grinch, Santa Claus is coming to town. We gave the kids each a Christmas eve present. They each received a board game and a small stuffed mouse that they had wanted. We played Beat the Parents, the game we gave our daughter and had many laughs. Then off to bed for the children while husband and I stayed up a little bit longer making it to bed by 1230am. Snow and more snow starting mid day then continuing through the night off and on and this morning on Christmas it is still beautiful and white. I told my husband that was all I wanted, a white Christmas...and we've gotten that, and so much more. My heart is full.

A few presents on Christmas day, a talk with family, relaxing, playing, eating, praising the Lord for his birth day. My are we blessed. This life, this beautiful life is amazing.

Blessed day.
