| a weekly capturing of contentment in everyday life |
As it turned out, Christmas was completely lovely and restful and sweet, albeit a bit milder in the gift-giving department. Here's a quick photo diary of our day together with our precious kids.
(Here's part 1 and part 2 and part 3 recapping this season of milestone celebrations for our family.)

Beautiful Christmas Eve service at Christ Church with family and friends.
For the first time in 25 years, our kids let us sleep in on Christmas morning. This turned into a leisurely start to the day with coffee around the table before Brian read the Luke 2 passage to us. Delightful.
Partway into our gift opening I received a text from one of my dear, co-worker friends telling me to open my front door. We didn't quite know what to expect from this friend and her wiley roommates, but didn't expect this lovely basket of homemade, a-maz-ing muffins! Mmmmmm. Brian especially loved the post script on the Christmas card poking a wee bit of innocent fun on his declaration to the entire second service of Christmas Eve churchgoers the night before: "There are no more cookies!"
Brian and I love these people.
Have YOU captured any contentment this week?
I'd love to hear about it!
