Christmas 2013...

I almost can't believe it's gone already. The entire Christmas season felt so fun and magical to me this year, I mean last year. Still trying to get my head around the fact that it is now 2014. And I haven't blogged in weeks. Plans were set aside, half finished posts were left hanging, because me littles wanted all of my attention, all of my time and I wasn't going to pass that up. 

I feel like Mia and Ryan are just growing up so fast that I am trying to hang on with both hands to them. Trying to savour every moment, even the yucky ones, especially since they are both going to be at school this year. Yuck, it hurts my heart just thinking about how the season of having them home with me is over forever with two of my babies now. Before I turn into a sobbing mess, I'm going to share some snapshots from our Christmas.

It was so good, not perfect by a long shot, there was discipline and yelling before breakfast was even through. Not the finest moment to remember about Christmas Day, but it's honest and we all redeemed ourselves and the day turned into one of our best ever. I kind of love that a life lesson was learnt even on such a sacred day. It doesn't have to be perfect to be good. Things will happen, mistakes will be made, but as long as we try to right those wrongs, forgive and be forgiven, life will be good. Different from what we picture sometimes but exactly what it should be.

It's a little (or a lot) late but nonetheless,

Merry Christmas!
