A Merry Christmas

Christmas was amazing!

Charla woke up on Christmas morning and, as soon as I went into her room, she asked if Santa had come. We went out to the living room to see and sure enough, there was a mountain of presents! Her eyes were huge. She immediately noticed the scooter since it wasn’t wrapped and wanted to try it out right away. I convinced her to unwrap her other gifts first. After unwrapping each gift she would declare that she wanted to play with it after breakfast. I don’t think there was a single gift she was not excited to receive.

After breakfast she had a little bit of time to play with some of her new toys and then we needed to drive over to my parent’s house. It was a little rocky there at first. All the excitement was a bit too much and she got overwhelmed. I think she also had a bit of a headache because her sinuses were super stuffy with the recent cold she had. Tim went to get her some Tylenol and about 30 minutes after getting a dose of that, she was fine.

She got all her presents from Papa and Papa Jack last weekend. But she did get a few books, a My Little Pony, a My Little Pony puzzle, a Dora hat and a sled, from other family members. She was thrilled. She got to try out my brother’s old air hockey table and she loved it! The hockey puck was flying back and forth between her and her aunt, it was funny to watch. Charla had to stand on a chair to reach the table and her legs would kick up behind her as she hit the puck. She must have played that game for almost a hour.

I’m so pleased with the way our Christmas turned out this year. I really couldn’t ask for anything more. However, today something more did happen, Tim got hired for a job. A real, permanent job! One we will actually be able to count on for awhile and make a budget. Things have been so up and down for the last 3 years the way this economy has been. This job is very needed and we are truly blessed.
