A Week of Christmas
Matthew slept a tiny bit longer because he had been up all night assembling the toy kitchen we got them from Grandpa Paul...it had just arrived on Christmas Eve, we were busy all that day, and he had to be at the 11pm church service that night, getting him home after midnight! I came out at 3:30am to see how it was going, and the kitchen was halfway done--nowhere to put it, and nothing to do but finish it! 6:30am he came to bed, and got up at 8! Wow. I couldn't have done it. Thank you Matthew!
We had a wonderful Christmas Day. Mom and Shayne were there for the morning, and then they left for Shayne's sister's. We spent the afternoon playing and napping and lounging around, and then left for a fabulous gourmet dinner at the home of one of our pastors. The girls had a great time there too. It really was a nice Christmas.
Whew! Our week of Christmas was so full. It was a wonderful time. Next week Matthew starts his new job at our church, and, having gotten my work permit back last week (yes, I had to stop working for awhile in December...immigration issues...) I will resume my afternoon job at the beginning of February. Change is coming, and change is here. 2012 was a rough year in many ways, but 2013 is off to a hopeful start! Happy New Year!
