We had to change family night to Monday this week; we did our annual 'sleep-in-the-livingroom-with-the-tree-lights-on' night. We dragged out the futon mattress, sleeping bags, pillows and all snuggled up to watch "The Nativity Story" together. It was a pretty good movie - some parts were a little scary for Seth & Luke (like when Herods soldiers are going house to house to kill all the baby boys...), and we did have to have an interesting discussion about circumcision as a result of one scene... but it was all good.
I'm now trying to tie-up the final details of getting ready for Christmas... have a few more things to post from this week, but not sure if time will allow. Hope you all aren't so busy with the holidays that you aren't being able to enjoy them. I'm trying to make a conscious effort to keep reflection and enjoyment central to all that I'm scurry around doing. To be completely honest, I don't think I won that battle today, but tomorrow's a new day, so I can start with a fresh effort.
Remember to have fun!!
