the night before xmas

a friend drops in much

attempting to settle two windy babies

watching 'Elf' and having cuddles


afternoon movie watching

some presents open and some yet to be



brunch with family


snacks for Santa and Rudolph


movie watching
baby settling, holding, feeding, loving
children giggling
little one taking herself off to her big bed (so santa comes sooner)(a first)
frogs croaking
rain pouring
lights twinkling
present wrapping while watching Modern Family
sacks and stockings waiting
biscuits, milk and carrots sitting in front of fireplace
two new babies not knowing its their first xmas
fruit for dinner
milo before bed
carol singing
a mama heart grateful for this wild and precious life

today I'm thankful for

managing to think of a simple craft that enables this one to get her hands messy
a new toy from a dear friend- so fun and now I can instantly glue moments to remember in my journal
summer fruit
her wonder
green views outside
seeing my oldest and youngest boys together
these babies will have a thousand kisses
