Christmas recap

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

These days, when we come home from work and school, Jack enters the house and looks around.  He doesn't see the Christmas trees anymore.

And then, he proclaims, "Christmas is OVER!"

And I tell him he's right, and that Christmas will come again next year.  (It's really this year, but yeah.  Go with me on this.)  And I tell him that Santa will come again and bring him presents.  And that we will have Christmas trees and lights outside and our Advent calendar.

Yes, I tell him.  We will have all of these things.  Next Christmas.  And it will be awesome.

For now, I remind him, it's January.  And that's when we do new things, because it's a new year.

He mulls this over.  He seems pretty okay with it.

So, rather than post five times with eighteen thousand pictures of Christmas, I will say that our Christmas this year was memorable.  Jack enjoyed every second.  And the highlights, well, here they are.


I hope you remember the highlights of this Christmas fondly, too.

Talk soon,
Heather
