This is about the only day of the year you can get me out on a frozen lake. Christmas at the cabin is a tradition we've started with Jahred's family and I hope it's one that will stick. Life is simpler, the kids are better behaved and we all go home tired.
Saturday we celebrated our first Christmas 2014 on Bluff Lake and the kids had their inauguration to paper ripping.
This year we are working on expressing thanks. When Axel was a toddler it seems he was programmed with the "pleases and thank yous." Over the past 6 months these expressions have been deleted from his vocabulary. Perhaps some of the most difficult tasks in parenting involve programming. If only it were as simply as writing HTML – 5 minutes of typing and the changes are permanent.
By the end of this season I never want to say, "What do you say?" AGAIN!
I didn't send out Christmas cards this year. It's bugging me...but only me...because the boys in my life have no idea we ever sent them out. This Holiday season however feels no less special.
Merry Christmas from our home to yours. If I don't see you before – enjoy the gift opening, smile lots and please say "thank you."
