The Family at Christmas

Two pairs of cute feet in cute shoes.
Santa brings us pajamas on Christmas Eve, which is when we have our big family celebrations.
Which means that when we wake up on Christmas morning, we have a pretty laid back morning followed by 11:00 mass.
Flowers from the table on Christmas Eve.
Hugo received a fire truck for Christmas, and I think none of us have ever seen a human being that was so completely happy.  He ran around screaming for about 10 minutes.
A little Christmas morning bed head.
Ben received a T-shirt, and we both sort of loved the label,  (It reads "Size "M" for manly, just like you hope to be some day.  stay rad.")
and a remote controlled helicopter.  He was quite happy to receive an actual toy on Christmas, this man child of mine.
Our three stairstep children, lined up for the mandatory Christmas shot.
Merry Christmas, friends!

Hello, I found your blog randomly and am pretty much arrested by it. What a beautiful life you've created for your family. I can't imagine how you do it. Thanks for letting me read it.

Therese, in truth, I do it just like anyone else, with a lot of mistakes, and patience, and lessons along the way. Thank you for your kind words and your presence here!
