Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas today.
- My December Daily journal entry will be about spending the day at home catching up on our Christmas movies waiting for Buddy to arrive. Buddy’s a yellow lab that’s coming to stay for a few days. He’s a little over 2 years old and brings wonderful life and energy into our house. We love when he comes to stay.
- This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge. Today’s topic was “unwrapped”. Ellie (and Woody) received a sleeve of tennis balls and a new bone from Santa. Grandma and Grandpa also gave them new tuggies and some treats. They love their new toys and amazingly have not destroyed them yet. They may actually last a couple of days.
- For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is all about Jessie opening her present of a drawing of a tomato from Mike. She had requested this on her Christmas wish list and he spent quite a long time trying to get it just right. She laughed so long and hard when she opened this present that there were real tears streaming down her face. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced as much joy as I did watching her open that present last night.
- 25 Christmas movies. We managed to get through two movies today. “The Ref” and “Die Hard 2”. Both take place at Christmas and are all around fun movies. And I think this is it for the Christmas movies.
“We love it when Buddy comes to stay, but we can’t keep up with him. I guess we’re old.”
