The children fell asleep to my reading of "The Story of Christmas" after getting home from the on-post Chapel service. It was very moving. We sang some of my favorite carols. Adam declared, in a loud whisper that Santa had NOTHING to do with the birth of Jesus.....and he sang with me. I loved that!!
This morning, we awoke to squeals and whispers that there gifts waiting to be opened...
I got what I wanted: time as a family. Reconnecting. Soon reality will come a callin'....And life will be a busy chaotic rush, so for now, I am soaking this up. I am taking naps. I am appreciating the housekeepers :)
Christmas was full of blessings. I hope it was the same in your house.
