A little of this:
Isa and Henry after the very-under-attended 6 p.m. Christmas Eve Mass, which I highly recommend. My boys were assigned to serve at this Mass this year, so we switched from our usual 4 p.m. plan and it was glorious. So relaxing. So very lovely.
And a little of this:
related: anybody know the magic trick to cleaning scuff marks off my risers? Besides the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and 12 tons of elbow grease? Which I will totally apply, would just love to avoid that method if there is an easier way.
And we are heavy in the throes of Christmas break. Late nights, late mornings, lazy days, letting my 12-year-old drive us around the abandoned parking lot up the street. Good times. So good.
One of these days writing will resume. But babies don’t keep. And teenagers, I’m beginning to realize, keep even less. I’m enjoying these days so very much. I hope you are too.
