Christmas was good to all of us this year. It started with the kids sleeping in until 7:30 and then waiting patiently for us to brew coffee before starting in on their stockings. The kids were all spoiled again. Despite swearing up and down the street each year that we won't do it, it seems we always do a bit too much. Home runs were made with the delivery of a trampoline and the adoption of a hamster. Both are proving well worth the consideration and investment.
My favorite moments were spent watching my mother help the nearly six-year-old stitch a bed for our new rodent family member, Wellington. My mother began teaching me to sew at about the same age and so it was endearing for me to watch. I have high hopes for me, my girl and that little purple machine.
The day carried on into the night at my sister's house where we once again all gathered to feast on my brother-in-law's gumbo and a chocolate mousse torte that Mr. Noodle helped me prepare after gift opening.
Much love to you and yours!
