The Thirteen Days of Christmas

Thirteen days.

A house full of kids.

Four gallons of Chex mix.

Chocolate dipped everything.

An entire ham devoured.

Hundreds of games of Dominion.

Epic Minecraft battles.



Inside jokes.

Time with special friends.


Late nights.

Lazy mornings.

Pots of coffee.

And now it’s over.

Matt flew out yesterday.

Pedro’s back at work today.

Dagmar’s preparing for next semester.

Christmas is put away.

The snowmen collection is out.

My house is quiet.

My couch is waiting.

My heart is happy.

And it is good.

  1. Way to celebrate!! Now, to enjoy the peace and coziness of quiet.

  2. Laura just showed me how to comment on your blog! I told her, “Everytime I read one I want to stop and say, ‘Yes, I love that!’ But I can’t!”:(
    Now I can!!! Because I love them! So glad you had a great Christmas!

  3. Sounds like perfection!
