SMP 12.26.13

SMP = Seven Minute Post

Our Christmas was wonderful. It was a slow, relaxed day at home and everyone in my family was happy! We woke up (early) and opened gifts, then just ate and lazed around all day. A perfect day in my opinion.

I only had one meltdown moment on Christmas Eve…

Abbey fell on her wrist when we were leaving the ice rink on Sunday night. She wasn't miserable but she kept complaining about it hurting so John and I realized that we probably needed to take her for an x-ray just to be sure it wasn't broken. On Christmas Eve. If you've ever taken your child in for an x-ray you know it's not a quick trip. I wasn't sure how I was going to fit that into my day and so a mini-meltdown ensued.

The good news is that her wrist wasn't broken--just sprained!
The other good news is that I adjusted my Christmas Eve baking plans and sent John to the grocery store to buy this…
…and felt my stress melt away and the world didn't end. Win-win! I guess Santa liked the pre-cut, pull-apart-and-bake cookies because the ones we set out for him were gone the next morning. And barring any trips to the ER, I'll make him the homemade kind next year.

We are laying low again today. We might go see a movie. We might just stay home in our pjs. That's the beauty of Christmas break--every day is wide open.

Hope your Christmas was merry!
