They let us sleep in this year! Both waited, ever so patiently, for both of their parents to be up and on their way to being caffeinated.
With each and every gift opened there was a proclamation of, "Oh my goodness! This is what I've always wanted! Thank you!"
May they always be so grateful!
We're off for a short church service this morning...a simple gathering to sing a few carols and to hear the Christmas story. Then we'll make our way out to my parents' where we'll spend the rest of the day as an entire family--mine and my sister's gift to our mom.
The past couple of years have seemed to be filled with more ups and downs than others. But through it all, we have been blessed beyond merit and measure. I very much believe the best is yet to come!
