My favorite family tradition

Every Sunday night we have 'family movie night'. It is by far my favorite time of the week. The very best part is when we push the sofa and love seat together, find the big down comforter and make a "nest". We all pile in and snuggle for the entire movie. It is amazing. Tonight we watched a 'censored' (by Tom...who knows the entire movie by heart) version of Tom's favorite Christmas movie 'Christmas Story'. Doesn't get any better than this.

Skipping ahead to Christmas!




I know, it's been too long! I have about 70 pictures to be sorted and lots more I could add from our wonderful Thanksgiving with all of my family. I'll get to that... But, for now, we had the kids first Christmas program at school tonight. It was amazing! Abby had a speaking part...in spanish! Sophie found out Monday that she would sing a duet. And Noah was part of a special song. It was precious, amazing, adorable! I think the best part was seeing my kids give each other fives/saying "great job" after each did their special part. I didn' t capture it on video, you can almost see it in the upper right corner of one of the videos...but not quite. Each time one returned they all gave each other 5. I could hear people around us saying, "They must be brothers and sisters". They love each other and they are each others biggest fans. Priceless.
