(i find that hard to believe knowing how much he loves cake.)
christmas '09 has felt different from past seasons, and at the risk of speaking too prematurely, it will probably be one of my most memorable.
thanks to black friday, the boys will be receiving a trampoline -- complete with safety net. because apparently children now are made out of glass. -- that'll wrap up the beginning, middle, and end of our morning. elliot is a champ and his potty training did not ruin the holiday like i had initially convinced myself it would. this is the first year that spencer and i won't be exchanging gifts, which has made my month easy. really easy. and without burdening anyone with all of the sappy details, a small prayer was answered this year, quite literally and in a timely fashion, stabilizing a faith that's often prone to losing its footing.
merry, merry christmas. hug family and give thanks for the friends in your life.
