Just One Morning

Merry Christmas!  Having just begun this new beautiful season I am the first to admit I already miss Advent.  The waiting.  The getting ready.  The whole 4 weeks is packed with moments that I want to preserve, treasure and savor.  Christmas day is a different kind of fun.  Lots of moments PACKED very tightly into one very busy day.  Each hour could be spent as a day in itself if you really think about it.


And today, on the second day of Christmas the sky is deep gray.


 My camera was tucked away most of Advent and Christmas day. This season my spirit of picture taking and sharing just seemed to be over taken by the need and want to make my kids something special from mama to open after Mass on Christmas Eve .  I had to give up something.


  But one morning right before the last 2 kids left for school I had to take out my camera.  The sun filled up the room.  The joy from Molly and Jack was bouncing off the walls.  Deep into the last week before Christmas break their school days were filled with merry making.  They were so cute.


Not wanting them to go, but so happy for their excitement. I knew I wanted to stop these moments.



My little Drew bubbling with pride over his mad clapping skills.....


Lucy taking a bath before bed, yet coming down to breakfast already needing another.....


My last hug before I walked them to the door.....


Just one sunny bright beautiful morning.....

  1. Merry Christmas to you! I just wanted to thank you for sharing your bog this past year. My blog has been on hold the past few months with my oldest getting married in three weeks and our youngest applying to colleges. I have high hopes for this year with my blog, but that will be for later. Life is happening all around me, and like you, I just don't have the time to write about it. Happy New Year to you and all of your family!
