It has felt like the last three months have flown by and I don’t know where the time has gone. Starting with Thanksgiving week until now, we have had multiple things on our calendar and “to do list” every weekend and most weeks.
I wanted so badly to have time to relax and enjoy the Christmas Season at home with my family, but just knew that would have to wait until after Christmas Day. Until a change came our way in the DFW area, 2013 Ice Storm!
Yes, it was crazy with the amount of ice and it was dangerous to be on the roads, but I was at home with my family for four days straight. Everything that weekend was cancelled and due to the weather we were all home together with not much to do. It was pure bliss!
We cooked a lot, ate a lot, played, cleaned, wrapped presents, watched cartoons together, played outside, made rice crispy treat houses, and the list could go on and on. Even though at some moments we had cabin fever, it was so nice to just enjoy our family and home.
So even in the midst of crazy times, running around and obligations we have this month, I was given the opportunity to love on my family and not have a single place to be. It was truly a time cherished!
