I wanted to tell you how we crazily decided that going to midnight Mass on Christmas Eve was a good idea, including waking four sleeping children and putting them into uncomfortable clothes.
I wanted to tell you about Christmas morning, and how so very tired I was after doing the Christmas thing parents must do AFTER midnight Mass and BEFORE going to bed. How very tired, but also how very happy. I wanted to tell you how grateful my children were to received their gifts and how there were no "gimmies" in our house that day. How Froggy received his giraffe pillow pet and how not only did he lay down on the floor to snuggle with it, he also went into his room to get his lovey giraffe to snuggle. How I heard him say "piwow" for the first time and how it made my heart melt.
How Fritter received his light saber and became a Padawan learner.
More than all that, I wanted to tell you Merry Christmas! I hope yours was full of many blessings.
