An Unplanned, Very Merry Christmas

This Christmas season has been so much fun. Not because everything has gone as planned, but because I have been able to laugh and say, "oh well" when the plan hasn't worked out. One of my favorite nights this month was when we decorated our tree. The only thing my kids wanted to do was have their daddy lift them up to put their ornament as high as their little arm could reach, then wrestle each other on the floor like little puppy dogs. My other favorite part of the night was when we all sang Mary Did You Know, in our most beautiful opera voices, and I danced as Mary. I made the part because I have the biggest belly (pictures not shown, you couldn't handle my moves.)

At the end of the night, there were ornaments all over the floor and a half decorated tree. I went to bed smiling. The night was better than I could have planned.
