It's been quite a busy, buzzy time around here leading up to Christmas. First, there's all the matters of business to conduct before I feel like I am truly on vacation, Second my husband became ill with a possible stomach flu, Third my ds is currently sick with what might have initially started out as an allergic reaction to Cedar. We had some intensely high winds the other day kicking up all kinds of dust and what not. Now here at the end of a lovely and quiet Christmas day (we cancelled all extended family visits yesterday when ds first started running a high fever). I think it worked out well. DS could be in his rhythm all day long, no expectations or disappointments, no pretense (from Mom and Dad as we try to smile through our sometimes annoyance with extended family members). Just enough tamales for mom and dad to enjoy an all day feast. A good supply of tea, honey and Ritz crackers to comfort a sick child. It was ironically probably one of the best days we've had in a long time as a family. It was just about a perfect Christmas Day.
