Up to right now this vacation has been almost everything we believed for it to be. It has been full of laughter, singing, stories, snuggles and family. As of last night, it was also full of the heart-broken tears of a girl who expected a friendship to pick up right where it left off 5 years ago. It most certainly didn't play out in real life anything like how she had played it out in her head but my dear Jellybean is doing much better after a discussion with her mama and daddy and some words of wisdom and snuggles.
I am enjoying our time; we all are. Jellybean and Bug wake up every morning with our friend's golden lab snuggled up with them, see their brother every day and we are having completely uninterrupted time as a family including having a great night (sans the "friend incident") at church last night.
Here's to another great day - enjoying our family, enjoying our friends... and I wish the same for you.
Merry Christmas Eve, my friends. Remember: People are the treasure!
(We even get a white Christmas as it is currently snowing here in Kansas City!)
