What a great vacation week it has been so far! I hope you all have much to celebrate.
Here are my celebrations for this week in no particular order.
I love Christmas. I think I love it even more because my kiddos are still small enough to see the wonder and magic of the holiday. I celebrated last week that my seven year old son TJ participated in decorating the tree for the first time ever. Now I am celebrating the fact that this year he loved opening presents! Every time he opened a present he would say "Merry Christmas" in his little, sweet voice. It was so adorable. I am also celebrating that my middle school daughter still wanted dolls for Christmas. I am so glad she is not in a rush to grow up.
2. My amazing mother-in-law!
I have to say that I have THE best mother-in-law in the entire world, hands down. I am celebrating that she is here for the week. She plays with the kids, helps around the house, lets my husband and I go on a date and, most importantly, tells me to go back to bed when TJ rises at 5:00. We all love having her around, she just completes the family.
3. A day with my boy!
We have been cooped up inside a lot this week due to the ice storm and several smaller snow events. Yesterday I got to take TJ to some of his favorite places, my school, the library, Burger King and the coffee shop. It was so nice to have a slow-paced, relaxing day together.
My adorable coffee date.
