All I want for Christmas...

Yesterday a giant, mysterious, red-papered box appeared on our doorstep, and the kids got their Number One Christmas Wish early.

After nearly seven months away, Nathan came home from Afghanistan – arriving just in time for the Little Jesus Festival (Berry's preschool Christmas pageant).

Berry played the part of an angel, and she was beyond elated that her Daddy was there to see her.

So whatever Nativity angel was known for waving, leaping up and down, giving thumbs-up, miming hugs and blowing kisses – Berry was that angel.

She was a bit distracting, but I think the Baby Jesus understood.

. . .


  1. I think He understood too. I'm bursting with joy for you all.

  2. Thank you so much Julia! Sending you love and hugs, we miss you.

  3. Oh that stuff makes me cry. I'm so glad Nathan is home, safe and sound for Christmas!

  4. How lovely! So glad you're all back together for Christmas! xx

  5. That pressed my "aww" button, most definitely. Happy holidays to your lovely family!
