Everyone have a good Christmas?
The days after Christmas are always a little depressing to me. My oldest was even upset on Christmas morning, saying even before he got out of bed that “I will miss Christmas when it’s over!”
We all had a wonderful Christmas, but the next few days following I have been filled with dread of having to take down all the pretty Christmas decorations….. Putting them up is easy. Taking down is the WORST!
Christmas left me sick, probably just from being run down after all the events that occur over only a few days, meaning I have been achy and have had a headache since yesterday.
But it was all worth it for the joy on the boys faces on Christmas. To see them excited to wake up, hear my oldest open his stocking ( which contained a few educational activities) and hear him exclaim “thank you for school work Santa!”, and actually mean it. Because I’m sure in a few years that statement will be more sarcastic.
I was amazed to watch them as they opened gifts, not as a free for all as I half expected them to, but slowly, watching each other open, and being so happy for what they or their sibling received.
Overall, it was a wonderful time spent with family, enjoying our time together, and being amazed at our children.
I hope you all had a merry and blessed Christmas, are recovering well, and are ready for the new year!
