Some of the things that have lightened my holiday season:
Daniel comes out and says, “You know, let’s say if a serial killer came into our house. Right now, we wouldn’t have anything to protect us. Well, now, we have this!” He pulls out a wooden Pinocchio my mother brought home from Italy and which I use for Christmas décor. He had sharpened the nose to a point. Before we were unprotected but now, now we have the killer Pinocchio!
It took several minutes to convince Daniel that my uncontrollable laughter was a good thing.
Sofie has spent the whole day in her swim suit. 70 degrees outside and she is running around in a swimsuit!
Robert is trying to catch Santa with spy equipment set up around the house.
Thanks to Robert, Jane thinks Santa brings toilet paper rolls to naughty children.
I have somehow ended up in the position where I have a bike to put together, a punching bag to hang and a sandbox to set up tonight after the kids go to bed. I have enlisted my husband’s help by promising him homemade eggnog. I wonder how well the bike will turn out but at least we will have fun.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
