We got the star on the tree – Aunt Elizabeth knows it was missing for a long time. It was set (poorly, but set) last night after 9 p.m.
But we never got the nativities sorted beyond the flash mob status. A reflection of some of the unique characteristics of this particular season – good season but always on the go!
Even Miss Sophie needs a bit of a nap after all the rushing around.
Papa needs a nap because he got up early and plowed away the new fallen snow for us and the neighbors (Merry Christmas neighbors), and he went for a run – all before we were opening gifts at the crack of dawn. Get rested up Papa we still have a movie to catch!
The goggles and flannel shirt are new, helmet is old. But this seems to be the chosen attire for the day – threatening to go to Unbroken wearing this later this afternoon. We’ll see. I bet he selects this outfit instead:
New jacket is from Grandma and Grandpa – thank you! He’s in love and I love the idea that I’ll be able to spot him on the ice flow or the ski hill. He’s wearing it right now (flannel shirt under, helmet and goggles still on) while listening to music by Lecrae.
All this colorful fun to celebrate the best gift in history – birth of Jesus. Can’t forget that without that best gift we just wouldn’t be the same – not the same at all!
