So I picked myself back up. Thanks to a considerate and patient husband as well as thoughtful and loving friends and family. And I am taking each day to marvel in the goodness that surrounds me and feel of Christ's love during this wonderful Christmas season.
And yesterday was a great day. (Henz is doing pretty good on day 3 of sleep training.) My children are a joy and fun. Pearce was giddy with excitement ALL DAY LONG! I brought the big bin of Christmas ornaments and decorations upstairs and she played with stuff in there saying how she couldn't wait to decorate the tree! (we were saving it for FHE) I LOVE how much she loves "decorating". I always loved all of my mom's decorations growing up, so it's fun to be able to pass that passion down to MY daughter. Fun Fun day and night.
And looks like we ALL like nutcrackers. Since Pearce said these were her faves.
Aren't Christmas trees great? To me they hold years of memories. I'll never forget our first meager newlywed Christmas with a tiny tree and picking out a box of small silver ball ornaments at Walmart. I love the ornaments we've collected through the years while traveling "home" to New Orleans and Seattle. I'll always cherish the boxes of vintage colorful ornaments that some of the ladies in our Cle Elum ward gave me after I helped them set up the branch Christmas party. Or all the ornaments I picked up after last years big day after christmas sale hugely pregnant with Henry. A tree full of memories, in deed.
