Whew!

 

Too much food.  Too many chocolates eaten by small children.  Too much wrapping paper, and hoping small parts of complicated toys were not in said wrapping paper.  Too much spent on presents (but I’m actually happy about it, because I made out like a bandit).  

But.

 

Just enough hugs from sick kids trooping their way through the day.  Just enough inside jokes with family.  Just enough forgiveness, understanding, making nice.  Just enough spiced rum.

 

And.

 

One gift from my son that he said didn’t fit in my stocking.  A big hug, and a big kiss, and a “Thanks for all of this, Mom.  It’s perfect”.

 

Merry Christmas.

  2. Aw, how sweet 🙂

    ….and phew, I am not the only one who blogged on Christmas day. I didn’t know if that was blasphemy or something 😉

  3. Dang it girl! Made me tear up again today! I don’t think you got the best gift of all. I KNOW you did!

  4. Kids got a bunch of gift cards this year, and I always worry that they’ll get tossed in all the hubbub of cleaning up. Nothing like that this year . . .

    And can I have some spiced rum? Please?!

  5. Nice! Sounds like you all had an excellent day. Making nice and big hugs from kids. Excellent.
