hot chocolate, movies, knitting, snoozy kitties and a turkey dinner. That is what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown

A turkey is roasting in the oven, making the house smell heavenly, the kitties are snoozing comfortably nearby and the men of the family are having a good time having a Wii bowling tournament, Bethany is off “saving lives” so I thought I’d spend a bit of Christmas time with you.

It’s been such a great, quiet day, just what my soul needed right about now. Our weekend will not be as relaxed but that is okay as that is our family time.  I have knit, watched movies and even tried my hand at Wii. I just have one thing to say about that: good thing the kids get their coordination from their father. Srsly.

All day long I have been a bit emotional feeling, tears spilling easy for any number of silly things. Some of the movies, a commercial or two, seeing Andy share a tender moment with Myron. It all makes me weepy today. It’s been a tough couple of months for my family. We of course, make it through but every now and then you realize how much it takes out of you.

With all that moosh, I’ll share one more song with you and then I’ll stop. Yes, well, it’s one of my favorites. I don’t really view it as a Christmas song although the radio stations do.

I hope your heart is full tonight.
