Christmas Came. I got sick. Adi got the Olivia Play house. Belay smiled, a lot. We got snowed in. Parties got canceled. Plans got changed. We rolled with the punches. We saw all our family. Santa did not get any cookies and milk. The Rain deer got no food. The dogs ate the " twas the night before Christmas" book so that didn't get read. Peppermint bark did not get made. My house did not get clean. My sticky buns were delicious. Our family had it's first Christmas morning at home with just the four of us. It did not go according to plan. My plans were made in vain. We rejoiced. We were together. We had each other. It was merry and bright!
