And Then We Snapped - Week #21

This week was all about Christmas and spending time with family. I can't believe I'm finishing up another 365 project! Yes I will be starting another one in 2015. 

“The next time you face something that is unexpected, unwanted and uncertain....consider that it just might be a gift.”

Tonight we had dinner at my aunt’s house and a small gift exchange. My kids were so excited because these were the first gifts they got to open this year. My son opened his present and it was two toy John Deer tractors so he was super excited. My daughter opened hers next and I could tell right away she was a bit freaked out. My aunt had given her the game operation. Between the tweezers, the buzzer and the funny looking guy on the box she was pretty much speechless.  We opened it up and my son, and my aunt’s granddaughter started to play and they were having the best time. My little girl watched on for a long time. Also my aunt and my daughter went over each thing wrong with Sam and talked about how silly it all was. The whole time my daughter kept saying, “I sure feel bad for Sam”. By the end of the evening she made a deal with us that she would play it as long as we took out the batteries and as soon as we got home she begged to play it some more. I think her reaction to the game shocked us all a bit but I knew she would end up liking it in the end. 

"In the garage
I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage
Where I belong
No one hears me sing this song"

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
-Clement Clarke Moore

“But how could anyone who's ever seen a summer - big explosion of green and skies lit up electric with splashy sunsets, a riot of flowers and wind that smells like honey - pick the snow?”
