It is IMPOSSIBLE to not love Christmas if you have young kids - I am convinced. We had a magical one and it was filled with my favorite thing - my family. Our kids got things that perfectly depict who they are -- Henry - a basketball hoop, kindle to read, and math games. Frances - a fireman set, a policeman set, and super hero set. Maggie - make up, ponies, and lots of doggies. Mark - Season tickets to the Timbers!!!!!! Christmas night my parents arrived from Alaska and went to Great Grandma's to celebrate and then back home for dinner.

Our family was out of town for Christmas Eve. A new thing. I was devastated. So....I invited friends to Cathedral for mass and then dinner at one pf my favorite restaurants. It was chaotic bliss...at least for me...with eight adults and eight kiddos. I have HORRIBLE pictures as I was having too much fun celebrating the day...but we had so much fun! Our friends are family to us - I can't say how thankful I am for them. XO
