Our Christmas

Our Christmas was full of wonder and excitement. Kofi and Joy experienced their first Christmas in America and even with trying to keep it simple, it was overwhelming at times.

 We don't make a huge deal out of Santa, but our 4 found their stockings filled, new sleds and one gift each waiting for them as they woke up.

Their gifts from us (which they knew about ahead of time) were something they WANT, something they NEED, something to WEAR and something to READ. This is something they needed: shoes, soccer cleats, and somehow Joy has a princess wand in her hand. It may very well be something she needed :)
Before long, the boys were playing a new DS game that Kofi wanted. Eric and I just watched and enjoyed the spirit of cooperation that was present in the house at the moment. 

After presents, all 4 wanted to go try out their sleds. We had the hill to ourselves and it was fun family time.
And I enjoyed a warm drink and time with my favorite people. It was wonderful
