Oh, so many gifts to be thankful for...

I didn't realize how sad I was about my husband having to work Christmas Day...until he was given the day off!! I had no idea that we would have a mini-Christmas break together, but it turns out vacation started the 21st and he doesn't go back until the 26th. I am so happy and giddy...finally in the Christmas spirit that I've been waiting for.

I also didn't realize how bad we needed a date until my sister came and babysat for us for a long, long time last night! We went to dinner (at the restaurant where he took me on our first date, no less), shopped at the GAP (lucky Joel), and went to a great movie--P.S. I Love You. We came back feeling more refreshed and connected...and our boys were tucked into bed, sound asleep. Thank you Auntie Kels!

And speaking of gifts...Griffin is into re-gifting lately. It is really quite sweet. He takes his sucked on food out of his mouth and holds his hand out like he's giving me a diamond ring. He's really so generous;)

Oh how wonderful!
Tim is taking 7 days off over Christmas this year, too and I am giddy as well!!!

What a blessing to have them home, huh?

Merry Christmas sweetie!

I am so happy for you and Joel. What a wonderful way for you two to reconnect. =) And that sounds like such a wonderful date.

I'm anxious to hear what you thought of the movie. Love you and Merry Christmas to you!

Good for you! We're hoping to get in a good date night with family here visiting for Christmas. It was great meeting you, Joel and Parker yesterday. Can't wait to see your little one and maybe talk over coffee!
