Hoss dipping sandwich cookies and sprinkling them with crushed candy canes.
Nugget in red and white stripes, ready with a smile for anyone who caught his gaze for more than a second.
Lady A taking a small bite from every chocolate before placing it on the pretzel, assuring me that they “brokded.”
Wrist-deep in white paint to make hand-painted handprint snowman bulbs.
Superhero and princess capes.
Side-hurt games of Taboo, fueled by wine and quick wit.
Late naps, skipped naps, forgotten bedtimes and truckloads of sugar.
My kids delivering a heartfelt and heartwarming compliment to everyone who hosted festivities.
Sleeping in, because the kids tiptoed past the parents and went to find the fun grown-ups at 6 a.m.
Hoss and Lady A choosing the perfect gift for Daddy.
Hoss and Lady A giving me “the best gift of all” after I opened my gifts…hugs.
It was a good Christmas.
