To My Kids

I just love you guys so much. It's been a great Christmas break so far and it looks like we might even have a snow day Monday, too with all the snow planned for tonight and tomorrow. I hear all these parents complain about how they can't wait to send their kids back to school, how this break has been too long. That's just not me. I mean, I know the days can be long and there's arguing and breaking up little fights here and there but I still prefer that then you being away all day. I love having you all here with me. It's my favorite. You all, you are my favorite.  I loved looking through our Christmas pictures and seeing those excited faces, those tired but too-excited-to-stay-in-bed-any-longer faces.  The cute way you shared the excitement with each other, so thrilled to give one another the gifts you picked out. Daddy read Luke 2 and you all opened a baby Jesus before unwrapping the rest. I know we are on the cusp of a new phase of life. One where you start asking for gifts other than babies, stuffed animals and the latest G rated movie. Isaac is dangerously close. But I'm holding onto that little bit of boy as I watch the little man eager to make his appearance.  Merry Christmas, I adore you.
