|After talking about how Santa is always watching, Marshall had to wish the big
guy in red a goodnight as well
|Once Marshall was down for the night, Brad and I (with Violet’s supervision and
scrutiny) went to town on wrapping Christmas presents. Obviously, wine and carols
were part of the package. I love wrapping presents together with Brad.
The twenty-third day was a day of feeling grateful. Grateful for two kids in the cart, for a little boy who is flourishing before my eyes, for being able to give our children what they want/ need, and for neighbors that go the extra mile to make us feel at home. It’s hard to believe that Christmas Eve is tomorrow and with it comes our annual Eve traditions. We are excitedly awaiting Christmas and truly hope that each of you are able to find what you are grateful for this holiday season and find an abundance of love that the season brings.
