Christmas was fantastic. I had the very best present ever: all of my kids were home to celebrate Christmas with me. My whole family! It was wonderful. We had a great time hanging out, playing on the Wii (LOVE Just Dance), watching movies, eating lots and lots of yummy food, eating even more popcorn, going Christmas caroling, baking cookies, and making the most ridiculous gingerbread village. In. The. World.
I loved the two weeks off from school, seminary, rehearsals, Scouts, and all of our regular commitments. Sometimes, I think we do run faster than we are able and it's nice to have a chance to slow down, enjoy doing nothing, and make some fun memories (even if there was far too much red frosting used for other purposes in my quiet little village).
