Yesterday, as we were driving into the driveway from picking up kids from school, my 7 year old said, thoughtfully from the back seat...
"Mom, our house sure is Christmassy."
My heart swelled. I saw our home through the eyes of a child and I realized that I have fulfilled everything I've ever wanted in motherhood:
Making a Christmassy home.
Lofty goals, I tell you...lofty, but warm and wonderful, goals.
