Christmas was

Christmas was well-spoken kids proclaiming the gospel, carols led by Mom and Brian, singing in a two-family choir led by Dad, Levi in his suspenders eating way too many cookies, matching sister ear warmers; it was a Mexican feast, a rousing game of "Cat and Mouse" (yes, Nana with a plunger!), Splickety Lick, a sappy Christmas movie, a giant family sleepover; it was the last of 12 daily letters from my beloved recounting our story, a perfect Christmas morning snow flurry, it was hot chocolate and stockings, an abundance of thoughtful gifts, a happy little boy soaking up love and lots of new things to read and learn and play with; it was a lasagna dinner, dancing to festive music and a Levi-sized disco ball, a philosophical arts debate, more "Cat and Mouse" and even more presents. This Christmas was love, family, music, joy, warmth, togetherness..a fitting celebration of the giver of all of these good gifts.


  1. Merry Christmas! Your home and church look so warm and inviting.

    1. Thanks! It's actually my parents and in-laws house, but they are also very inviting! Hope your Christmas was wonderful, too! :)

  2. Beautiful post and beautiful moments, Kerrie! May 2013 be just as blessed for you!
