It's so hard to be productive this time of year.  I fully intended to start on the Intelligencer Coat this week...but did that happen? No. Instead, the kiddos and I have played multiple rounds of UNO and Phase 10.  We've wrapped presents, played lions and tigers, built pillow forts and sipped on Caramel Steamers.  I've been completely unproductive, and yet...when I see the smiles of those three little people who call me Mom, I feel the satisfaction of an intangible success--as if, just maybe, by being present, I've demonstrated the true spirit of Christmas. 
That in all we do this season--the presents, the feasting, the playing, the togetherness--we do with worship towards a Savior Who came helpless...so we could be strong.

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family!! I keep telling myself that there will always be time for sewing but not always time to play with my daughter.

  3. Sounds to me like you are a very productive Mother. Doing eveything a Mother is best for at this time of year. Not to mention a beautiful woman in an oh so lovely dress. You look wonderful Kritina. And I'm sure the kids have everything to do with it.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy Brand New Year!
