Christmas 2013

by Katie on December 27, 2013

I wrote a post a few week back over at Des Moines Moms Blog about letting go of the perfect Christmas. Turns out I was writing this post to myself because little did I know at the time that I wrote that post that I would really need to take every single bit of my own advice from that post. You see, I came down with an awful case of stomach flu on Saturday night that hung on hard and mighty all day Sunday most of the day Monday and only started to lessen it’s grip a little on Christmas Eve afternoon.

I had grand plans of my family going to church, my boys standing in front of the Christmas tree for pictures in their brand new outfits, coming home to a yummy meal of appetizers and sipping on wine while we opened presents. Instead we watched church online ate sandwiches and all hung out in out pajamas and it was really, really wonderful. I had already promised myself, even before I came down with the flu, that this Christmas  I was going to roll with the punches and just enjoy no matter what happened and I’m SO happy to say that I did just that. Truly the only thing I missed on Christmas Eve was being able to attend Christmas Eve service at our church.   We had the best night opening presents and hanging out together as a family just soaking up the evening.

I hope you all enjoyed a peaceful and memorable Christmas with the ones you love.

Here are a few of the highlights of our Christmas Season-
