The Cumings Family Christmas Extravaganza began yesterday! It was, as Zoe would say, “crazy.” After a delicious butter braid breakfast, I whisked Zoe off to daycare for her Christmas party, where she decorated cookies and sat on Santa’s lap like it’s her job. (This was her fourth attempt, so I guess she’d already gotten all the screaming out of her system.)
Meanwhile, Mike and I set up Zoe’s Crazy Christmas Present Obstacle Course! She crawled through a tunnel into a pop-up tent, knocked down a wall of cardboard “brick” blocks, and discovered her doll house. She immediately sat down and played with it for half an hour, refusing food and other presents.
The rest of the day we ate, played, napped, and watched vintage children’s Christmas shows on Netflix Instant. (Pro Tip: The Bear Who Slept Through Christmas does not teach you the real meaning of Christmas. It does feature Casey Kasum and Tom Smothers.)
The next few days really will be crazy–two more family Christmas celebrations, four worship services,and one plane ride–so it was nice to have a quiet day at home.
Whether you’re looking for a few quiet moments or some hustle and bustle, I hope you find it this weekend!
