during the traditional Christmas naptime for parents, the kids did not nap themselves (oh except Avery of course) but rather, joyfully played with their toys - oh and my makeup. now you may remember the close call i had a while back thinking the girls got into my makeup- well this time it really happened. these are the faces that woke me up from my nap. (who am i kidding, i never took a nap. really they just roused me from a waking coma.) yeah. so, in an effort to keep the kids otherwise engaged, Jason invented the hit game, "throw the kids."
it still made a big mess, but this one was easier to clean up!
and by the way, Maddie thought Ralph was Santa and wouldn't go near him all night! we'll see if she warms up to the jolly man in the red suit next year.

as for me, i am having some special feelings for my man. Jason, every girl dreams about marrying prince charming, tall dark handsome, and all that. surface stuff. but what astonishes me each day, are the ways you have become the man of my dreams, the ways i didn't even know i was dreaming about. the absolute trust i am able to have in you gives me a deeper sense of love than i ever thought possible. all of the twitterpated feelings i had when we first started dating are still there, along with a deep admiration for the kind of loving husband and father you have become. i love how dedicated you are to all that you do, and i feel like i have been able to become myself with you by my side. thank you for loving me. happy birthday! (oh, and please don't be mad at me for posting these pics, i just loved the way you looked when you got home the other night.)
