It was absolutely an extra special Christmas this year.
Of course one of the highlights of every Christmas for me is watching my kids be a part of our church’s Christmas pageant. I’m always a bit nervous about their behavior in front of the crowd, and you may remember the wrestling sheep we had a couple of years ago. Still, I love it. This year was a memorable one. They missed their part. They were in the bathroom… Oh well. They are still my 2 favorite shepherds. 🙂
Christmas morning was the amazing wonderful fun that it should be. Hannah seemed to love it. Several people asked me if I had a hard time keeping Hannah away from the Christmas tree. Honestly, she barely seemed to notice it. I figure she thought it was a strange as anything else in her life that we would suddenly have a decorated tree inside our house.
Santa brought the girls a little play kitchen, and Hannah played with it while all the other kids opened all of their gifts and went entirely through their stockings. She was a happy girl.
My favorite line of the day came from little D though. He took a look at his gifts from Santa, and in an amazed voice said, “I was good??”.
