today will be a really good day! i love knowing that we will have a great time, make memories, seeing my babies laugh, seeing my husband laugh. knowing i will laugh.
after a super busy week and super busy day...tonight we spent time with dear, dear friends. friends that are family to me. i'm filled up. filled up with babies, giggles, smelly confessions, really good food, christmas spirit done right, good and funny scoop. i am ready to start a new day...love more, be more, do more! that is the kind of people they are. makin' others want to be better. i love them.
my kids were a challenge tonight. i was tired. jeff is tired. i thought when we eventually did get home, i would quickly change the kids into their chrsitmas jammies, tell a quick story, and hurry them to bed. i thought i would do that...but i didn't. instead, i sat and talked to peyton. told her how much i loved her, how proud her father and i are of her. overcoming a doggy fear, paying compliments to others, and giving out hugs. these are the things that i will remember from tonight.
tomorrow is our Christmas celebration that we have coined...Chriswish! we do this each year before we head north to michigan. it gives us a chance to spend some time together with just us as a family. we make cookies for santa, bc he knows we won't be home for christmas day, he makes a special visit here each year before christmas to drop off gifts for peyton and beckham.
jeff and i have wrapped, bowed-up packages, spread out (to make it look like more gifts), put-together, tip-toed, whispered, made a follow-the-string- gift and talked up Chriswish for weeks! it will all be worth it when we get to see their little innocent faces in the morning. i will post pics from this event later.
meanwhile, here are some pictures i took of peyton on a "Girl's Day Out!" just the two of us for lunch, a photo op, and girl talk. i love this girl so much!!!
who do i think i am??? huh? Huh? cute huh?
